The Gilded Invitation

Gold Marbled Paper Letterpress Invitation with Handmade Custom Box

It must come as no surprise that I have big time client envy. I say that in the best sense of the word though because I really do love my clients! It’s just hard not to get a little envious when we are working on these amazing invitations to wonderful destinations, thinking about the beautiful venue, the elegant reception…. ah c’est  la vie!

Quynh and Ian are having a small, intimate Parisian wedding this fall. They came to us earlier this year wanting a classic and elegant box invitation for their closest family and friends. One that would really capture the spirit of their destination and be something that everyone could keep as a remembrance of the day. Quynh had fallen in love with the look of the Rococo invitation on the website, and wanted to take some of the same elements and tailor it into something uniquely their own. We found this beautiful aqua and gold hand marbled paper from Sustain and Heal and designed (and made entirely by hand) beautiful custom boxes to hold the invitations. The box is entirely lined in a crushed gold leaf paper, tied with double faced satin ribbon and topped with an ornate metal piece which frames the names of the couple letterpressed in gold ink on shimmering ivory paper.

Here’s some more views…

 

Gilded Box Wedding Invitation

Custom box mailer wrap with views of the custom made box and invitation.

On the inside, the gatefold invitation is wrapped in gold twine and sealed with a fleur de lis wax seal. Each panel holds a different piece of information. On the left is the venue, complete with a beautiful line drawing of the actual church. The center panel is the invitation itself with a floral swag adorning the top. On the right, is the the reception venue. All letterpressed in gold ink. It’s truly a stunning presentation.

Congrats to Quynh and Ian! We are sure your Parisian wedding will be trés magnifique. We’re just a little jealous that we don’t get to go!

 

Sealed with a Kiss – Custom Wax Seals

Custom Wax Seals are the perfect finishing touch for your wedding invitations!

So your invitations are done and ready to go out to your guests… finish them off with a final splash of elegance by adding custom wax seals to your envelopes. Your guests will ooh and aah as soon as they get them from their mailbox. Be sure to have the post office “hand cancel” these invitations (always a good idea with any invitation if you ask us) so the wax seal doesn’t get torn off by postal machines. Wax seals are perfect with inner envelopes, or you can use them on outer envelopes as shown here, just don’t forget about that hand canceling! Custom wax seals available here at Carciofi Design for $1.25 per seal in a variety of designs and colors. You can also have a custom die made for the seals with your personal wedding logo or monogram for $100+ depending on size and complexity. Contact us for details!

Congratulations to Kate and Americo who are getting married this July at The Breakers in West Palm Beach. Now that is the ultimate beach wedding!
