Monstera Monday: Foliage-Filled Wedding Invites

Ah, #monsteramonday! I’ve been saving these, just so I could use that hashtag on my Instagram post! It’s been quite the task, as this design is one of my favorites!

When I saw these giant monstera leaves in a pack of watercolor illustrations I recently purchased, I knew they would make an awesome statement on an invitation! Equally perfect for a South Beach wedding (can you imagine these with a pink envelope?!) or a foliage-filled urban loft, these invites are sure to get your guests excited for the big day.

For their invitation design, I expanded on their Art Nouveau theme and added a few special touches to create a truly stand out suite.

I’ve been wanting to use petal envelopes for a while now, so I was very excited about these gorgeous deep blue beauties! Topped with an antique gold faux wax seal, they are the perfect introduction to these beautiful invitations.

About halfway through production of the invitations, the bride’s mother ordered a set of my Advice for the Bride & Groom coasters to have on hand for the reception. I love her thoughtfulness!

I used the same beautiful sparkling gold paper for the invitations and my gorgeous cotton stock printed with coordinating gold ink for the invitations. Mixing papers and materials adds an artistic flair to this luxurious, historically inspired invitation suite. I love how it all came together!

A Formal Affair: Black and White Watercolor Wedding Invitations

BW_watercolor_6073This suite turns the traditional black and white wedding invitation on its head. Reversing the formal script and classic typography to white on an abstract black and gray watercolor background creates a stand-out piece that is both elegant and alluring.BW_watercolor_6094

Pair this suite with a white or cream envelope to keep things neutral, or add an accent color like this stunning cobalt blue. Either way, you can’t get more chic than these!BW_watercolor_6074

Blush Pink Watercolor Wedding Invitations

Is there anything more romantic than a wedding filled with lush flowers? City or country, modern or traditional, there’s always a flower that’s perfect for your big day. They’re also super fun to paint and design with!

pink_dahlia_6034I started to get back into watercolor painting again after a bit of a hiatus for a client this summer. She went with a different option (to be revealed next spring!), but I’m still absolutely in love with these loose pink flowers! Artistic and modern while still being decidedly pretty, the loose style of painting interacts perfectly with the sage watercolor wash featured on the rest of the suite. Pairing them with a lime envelope creates a fresh feel that would be perfect for a spring wedding!
