Autumn Hydrangea Wedding

September 25th, 2009 @ 10:30 am by Sarah @ Parrott Design Studio

Continuing with the "theme" of a new take on a previous design, I recently designed and printed these hydrangea wedding invitations for a lovely couple living in Ireland. I did a similar design over a year ago in sea-inspired blues and greens for a childhood friend.

I loved printing in pink and gray; it is so flirty and feminine. Many couples {my fiance and I included} go for more gender neutral colors, but sometimes an all-out floral-filled, swashed and swooped, pink-fest is necessary. I have always been under the impression that hydrangeas are a summer flower growing in the yards of cute cottages on the beaches in Maine and Cape Cod. However, autumn is when some of the most beautiful hydrangeas are in season, including antique hydrangea .

This invitation suite included a ceremony invitation, a smaller ceremony invitation {in the same design as the ceremony invitation}, an RSVP postcard with the return address printed on the back, a direction card, and thank you cards.

The couple came up with some fun phrases for the RSVP instead of the usual "Accepts with pleasure/Declines with regrets" responses.

The invitations were gocco screenprinted on smooth, 110 lb. white stock with light pink & warm gray inks. The envelopes for the invitations and thank you cards were in a coordinating light pink.

The grey definitely goes with the delicate feel of this suite. Beautiful work!

I love the wording on the RSVP card. It is a great new twist to a standard card.

I absolutely love everything about these designs, from the wording, to the fonts, to the colors - so very tasteful. It is all different — in a good way. I really love the Spencerian script - is that a commercial font?
