I thank my lucky stars that Katie and Damon selected me to design their wedding stationery and signage. What a pleasure! They got married last Spring in St. George, Utah on May 12 at The Entrada at Snow Canyon. With the love of Spain in their hearts, Katie and Damon used the bright orange rocks and green grass to create a colorful and inviting Spanish/Southwestern-themed event.
The Wedding Invitation Suite
The fushia, green and orange motif design on the invite was actually provided by Katie. She had used it on their save the date cards and knew right away she wanted it incorporated into her custom wedding invitation suite. We highlighted the texture of the decorative Spanish-looking font and tile-design pattern by printing the invitation and rsvp cards in letterpress on a soft ivory-toned cotton stock. The selection of shimmery bright envelopes pulled everything together to express a refined Spring wedding mood.
This fabulous bride and groom wanted the whole look and feel of their wedding to be consistent throughout, so they came back to me to create their day-of wedding stationery. To make certain all elements would come together with the day-of decor they had chosen, we implemented the same colors, fonts and design motif as used on the invitation cards.
The Wedding Escort Cards
Katie purchased Spanish tiles for the escort card table. Since the designs on the tiles were so eye-catching, we created simple belly bands to wrap around them with each guest’s name and table.
The Wedding Menus
There would be a 3-course dinner served at the reception—food was a standout piece of the event for the couple—so they decided to place 2 menu cards on each guest table. Even though Katie and Damon knew what the meal was composed of, exhibiting a full menu with all of the details for their friends and family to read was a very considerate touch!
The Just Married Sign
Instead of a getaway car, this bride and groom used a getaway cart! Katie requested a “just married” sign to hook on the back of the golf cart for their party exit. I recommended a fabric sign. Fabric is more flexible than paper and there is not a major price difference. Plus, it won’t get ruined in the rain. This signage was the perfect custom touch to end a spectacular day!
