Calligraphy Inspired - Sangria and Black Wedding Invitation

Sangria was a definite favorite this year! This is my third invitation suite that used this rich redish/purple color. When I met with Shauna and her fiance Shane about their custom wedding invitations ... they described their vision as elegant, classic and sparkly.

We panned through countless patterns of brocade, damask, flourishes and even pinstripes. Nothing seemed to be just right so we started to explore fonts and remove all other elements and landed on an all time favorite font that will forever have a piece of my heart - Burgues Script.

For added bling we used a metallic black pocket folder, printed our own sangria color backing layer because we couldn't find the perfect color elsewhere and used an ivory/white metallic sheet for the remainder. To top off the set we wrapped the metallic black folder in a sangria sash that was embellished with 3 rhinestones. For some reason, I photographed the suite before the rhinestones were added ... sorry!


Shauna's set included: reply card, details card, accommodations card and a rehearsal card for those invited.

Reply postcard.

Machined calligraphy on front and back of envelope. When sending out 355 invitations, this is definitely worth every penny!


Details card that housed a custom map, registry information, ceremony and reception locations and accommodation information.

Pocket folder sash to keep everything in a perfect little package inside an envelope with machined calligraphy.
