It’s hard enough being the bride. The pressure goes up a thousand fold, though, when your guests discover that you’ve taken on designing your own wedding invitations, too. Undeterred, designer Rachael Miller, inspired by holographic envelopes she initially dismissed as “too flashy,” decided instead to run with it. She decided that holographic foil would not only play nicely off the holographic envelopes but that it also would go beautifully with the “starry night bohemian vibe I’m envisioning for the whole event,” she told the printer who made this vision a reality: Mama’s Sauce.
Hand lettered, the invitation is definitely not something that her guests are going to forget in a hurry – you can easily see yourself placing this on a small display stand on a bookshelf or side table. But it’s with the save-the-date card that Rachael truly outdid herself.
“The enamel pins are another unusual addition to a wedding suite,” she told Mama’s Sauce. “I wanted to do something special for our save the date that was memorable and sort of interactive, but also useful and not have our names plastered all over it. This way, our invitees can keep and use this pin for themselves and while it’ll remind them of us and our celebration, it’s also totally unbranded!”
The best of luck to you both on the big day, Rachael. May your wedding be as creative and inspiring as your invitation suite!
