Terracotta Wedding Invitations

I am excited to share with you a sweet couple, Ali and Ed, and their luxury wedding at Rocky Fork Hunt & Country Club in Columbus, Ohio. Their wedding invitation was one for the books, and personally can say it was a career high to work on.

Terracotta and Sage Wedding Invitation

Their wedding color palette was rich and bold, using sage green and terracotta’s for their main wedding invitation, wedding reception decor and day-of stationery. The day came together so beautifully, orchestrated by The Finer Things Event Planning.

When I met with Ali’s mother, she was upfront about how much she loved paper. This always excites me, since I know the client understands the value of using different paper textures, printing methods and more. You can really dig in deeper with someone who loves paper as much as you do 🙂 We started with wanting something bold, right off the bat. That meant going bigger, with a 5.5 x 8.5 invitation and covered it with white foiling and a mix of copper foiling. The base of the wedding invitation was a sage green, but not double thick…or triple thick… literally 5x’s thick than regular cardstock. This duplex method gives an amazing thickness and feel which ensures an immediate WOW factor.

We move to the beautiful welcome and brunch card on a terracotta paper, making this a triple duplex as well, creating a thickness you cannot get normally from regular cover stock. The white foiling typography moved throughout this custom luxury wedding invitation and was tied with a gorgeous ribbon and wedding wax seal.

The sage green wedding envelopes were handwritten by Calligraphy by Keri in a copper metallic ink.

The bride is an equestrian, therefore, wanted to showcase her passion in a non-cheesy way for the wedding logo. After multiple variations, we landed on the perfect one. This logo carried throughout all of the wedding day of details too!

Shipping of Wedding Invitations – Parcel or Letter?

The one thing we did learn was that due to the thickness of each of the invitation cards, this did have to be sent via parcel instead of a regular letter. Definitely check your thickness and know how far you can push it before it ends up being $5 as a package instead! As soon as it cannot go through the template slit at the Post Office, it will be pushed up to a package. Weight also has a lot to do with it as well. Plus, always remember to add that hand-cancelation to it to help protect your invitation, especially when using envelope wax seals!
