A MODERN MONOGRAM
The best way to get guests excited for a wedding in an iconic city, like New York, is to pull inspiration from the city itself into your invitations! We did just that with a gorgeous wedding monogram!
The watercolor city skyline features all of the structures New York is known for. All of those buildings can get a little stark and industrial feeling, so to keep it romantic, we did everything in watercolor in soft taupe hues.
Adding in beautiful floral touches and modern typography gave this monogram the perfect juxtaposition of bustling city life with a dreamy wedding.
CUSTOM WATERCOLOR MAP
Getting around a new city can be daunting for guests, so we included a custom watercolor wedding map with all of the important locations marked.
Of course most people can use their GPS, but a map makes a sweet keepsake and helps out those are technology-challenged.
Plus it’s just pretty!
Nothing adds as much elegance to your invitations as calligraphy addressing. There is just something about beautiful letters, written by hand in shimmery ink that gets me every time!
When trying to convey that your event is formal, calligraphy is a luxury always worth the splurge!
THE WEDDING DAY
MENUS and PLACECARDS
All of the wedding stationery featured looooong lines, inspired by the skyscrapers of New York and we kept the theme going with the wedding menus.
The text was aligned to mimic the top of the Empire State Building and fit in perfectly with the surrounding structures.
Place cards always add a touch of elegance and these did not disappoint!
Gorgeous calligraphy in the most perfect warm pewter hue was joined by blush silk ribbon and a wax seal adorned with dried rose petals.
You better believe guests were taking those place cards home at the end of the night!
The most stunning loose florals in peachy tones sat atop lovely beige linens for an absolutely ethereal vibe.
Again, the pairing of stark skyscrapers with such soft, sweet elements made for a truly magical setting for guests!
The table settings featured gold accents for a pop of fun and the view did not disappoint!
