I designed this invitation set for my own destination wedding. I needed a creative solution to get my guests all the travel, wedding, and reception information in a stylist design package.
I designed the invitations with a vintage travel feel as well as a seahorse theme. The piece below went out to the guests first. It contained the invitation to the ceremony, travel information, and a save the date for the reception.  The individual sections were printed on linen paper. Then, I sewed each booklet together using a sewing machine.
I used icons as well as a text on the tabs to denote each section. This first section was the official invitation to the wedding ceremony. The picture on the right was taken by Roots of Life Photography.
The second section was reserved for travel information. I designed the map on the left to accentuate the vintage travel feel.
The last section was the Save the Date information for the reception back in the states. Photo on the left taken by Roots of Life Photography.
I designed address labels to coordinate with the invitation booklets. So the guests get a little taste of the feel of the wedding before they even open the envelope.
The weekend we returned from Jamaica, we had a reception in Chicago. Below is the Reception invitation that I sent to out closer to the time of the wedding. For this packet, I needed each each to be separate to the response card could be mailed back.
I carried the same theme and feel over for the Wedding Invitation Booklet. This time using a vertical format.
All three photos for the reception invitation where taken by Keith Lee Photography.
Each section was shorter than the one before, so the tops stacked, displaying the tab at the top with the icon and text of the section. On this section for accomodations and hotel information, I designed a map on the back showing where the hotel was in relation to the reception venue.
This last section was the response card, that the guests filled out and mailed back.
We made welcome gifts for each of our guests that came all the way to Jamaica to see us get married. I continued the branding onto some of the elements for the bag.
We also made goody bags for the guests staying at the hotel in Chicago for our reception. I made stickers for the bags, door hangers, and custom water bottle wraps.
My husband used the print design and graphics as an inspiration for our wedding website.
