Mietta and Brent - wedding stationery Part One

Mietta and Brent 

Recently  I had the pleasure of working with Mietta and Brent to design their invitations and on the day items for their November nuptials. After my initial meeting with Mietta to talk about their wedding plans I knew that this was going to be something special - contemporary and elegant with a little New York style of sophistication, plus the gorgeous view of the Melbourne city skyline from their venue thrown in for good measure.

All of this is reflected in the design of their wedding stationery. The colour palette of white, grey and violet is inspired by the couples colours and the contemporary style of the event. With a simple palette, we chose to use one of my favourite textured paper stocks - Rives Design in Bright White complemented by a black and white string tie envelope to add to the contemporary look of the invitation.

To tie the whole suite together, each piece features a light violet chevron pattern inspired by the pattern to be featured on the wedding cake, and a simple emblem featuring the couples initials - which not only played a part in the decor of the event but is inspired by the M and B letters that decorate the couples home.

The complete stationery suite included invitation, rsvp card, details and gift registry card, menus, place cards and an order of service. 

Below is part one of the stationery suite - the invitation set! Check back later in the week for part two - on the day stationery. 

Also, I special thank you to Mietta and Brent for asking me to work with them - these guys were amazing to work with! 

Invitation Set - The invitation set included a square format invitation, information card and rsvp card with a black and white string envelope. 

Invitation - The invitation featured the key elements of the suite including the couples emblem, faded grey diamond and the chevron pattern .

Details Card - The double sided details card featured a simple illustrated map of the location 
with the inverted emblem and chevron pattern, with the reverse featuring gift registry details.

RSVP details - The rsvp card included key elements such as the emblem and chevron pattern. Using a contemporary style of rsvp, guests were invited to request a song - helping make the playlist for the reception. 

Invitation suite details - Each piece featured the key elements so that they looked like a whole, but were also visually striking on their own. 

In our next post we will be sharing part two of Mietta and Brent's wedding stationery - the on the day items.
