Damask Wedding Invitation
A lot of the weddings we designed invitations for are finally getting under way this Spring and it’s always great to hear back from our brides who want to follow up their invitation designs with matching stationery for their receptions. Marieleng and Joachim are getting married in France later this month at Chateau Bagnols (to die for!) They called us back asking for something we had never done before… a custom made marriage certificate, letterpressed to match their invitations along with matching table name cards, placecards and guest cards for the reception. Letterpressing one piece in two colors is expensive, but we thought ‘why not’? It certainly is an important piece of documentation of your wedding day and the standard certificates are pretty boring, not to mention unattractive. Follow it up with a custom made, velvet damask, cover and it becomes something very special and a beautiful remembrance of the day.
We letterpressed the certificate on two ply ivory museum board in pale rose and wine red. The certificate cover is hardbound using the same deep red velvet damask as the invitation with french velvet ribbon and a Swarovski crystal rosette. The inside has a frame to hold the certificate which slides in from the bottom and pale rose satin ribbon on the alternate panel to hold photos or other keepsakes of the day.
Congrats to the happy couple! This is one wedding where we sure wish we were on the guest list. C’est Magnifique!!
When it comes to matching the rest of your wedding stationery to your invitations, the sky is the limit! Check out our handmade ivory damask custom guestbook made to match our Vienna invitation suite. Carciofi Design can make the guestbook in any size and material and customize the inside pages with your name and wedding date. We can also change the layout to allow room to add photos and/or have an area for your guests to leave you a special note. The front cover has a frame with a card with the names of the bride and groom floated on a burnished gold backing layer. The spine is tied with gold gossamer ribbon and finished off with a Swarovski crystal rosette. Truly elegant and luxurious it’s the perfect touch to add to your wedding day and will be a treasured keepsake for years to come. Custom guestbooks by Carciofi Design $85 – $125 depending on size and materials.
Slowly pulling out of holiday mode and gearing up for the new year! Just posted a new design on the website. Behold… Bordeaux, our newest luxury invitation design! Marieleng and Joachim live in Singapore but are getting married in France at the fabulous Château de Bagnols! They wanted something in a classic old european style to match the feel of the chateau and give their guests a peek at the elegant event they have in store. The invitation matches the look of the chateau perfectly and has a wonderful old world feeling. We even included the chateau’s crest in the design.
Letterpressed in pale rose and wine ink to match the luxurious velvet cover, with side panels to hold different insert cards, we think this invitation sets the perfect tone for their romantic French country weekend wedding! Vive l’amour!
