Invitation Breakdown...

So, We sent an invitation to ourselves- and received it today! As with the save the dates, we designed it together. It was a little bit more involved, but, here is the breakdown...


Our calligrapher was fellow brooklyner Jenna Hein. The ink color and font was just stunning- we are so pleased!
We kept so much of the invites clean and decided against the extra paper of an inner envelope, I still wanted to add a little something extra. We designed the envelope liner and lined them ourselves. Using vellum made it a little trickier- but the end result was worth the extra attention.
In the past, I loved seeing that bit of tissue paper covering the invitation before you actually saw it (more often for formal invites). We created the same effect with a sheet of vellum using a contrasting white on green version of our liners.
I kept our invitations clean and simple with only two colors and two fonts.

Our little extra is the back... we wanted to continue the farm theme and set the foundation for the birds.
More in the next post!!
