I do love an good bespoke brief from a client! So when Sophie & Ross got in touch last year wanting a vintage travel wedding invitation I was very excited! I do have a vintage travel themed range of stationery but it wasn’t quite what they were after. So they purchased one of my bespoke fees and we had a consultation over the phone to discuss their requirements.
They really wanted to include a gate-fold style of invitation so I designed a vintage travel themed gate-fold. The background had a vintage aged paper feel and was kept together by a simple belly band with a stamp mark and their names. Although they wanted a vintage feel they also didn’t want it to be too old fashioned and fussy so a clean belly band definitely made it more modern.
The next big thing was to incorporate not only one of their favourite photos but also to create an RSVP card in with the theme which allowed their guests to see a menu and return their menu choices. I designed a lovely little round corned folded booklet with their photo aged slightly on the front. Inside were the menu options and tick boxes for the guests. The tick box section was then perforated so it could be torn off, and on the reverse it was pre-addressed to Sophie & Ross so it could be posted back to them with a yes / no as well as the menu choices. I was so pleased with the design I can’t wait to do something similar again in the future!
The invitation itself sat inside a pocket inside the gate-fold and was in the form of a punched train ticket. There was then also a telegram style information card and a little luggage tag with the gift list details.
I absolutely loved designed Sophie & Ross’s travel wedding invitations. If you would like me to come up with something bespoke for your wedding please don’t hesitate to get in touch via the contact form or email me [email protected]
