Bermuda must be getting to me: I’ve been designing lots of invitations inspired by the tropics lately. And since it’s Friday, I thought you guys deserved a double feature!

Perfect for a destination wedding, or if you want your big day to feel like a getaway! And since most destination weddings happen in the winter, now is the time to get going on them!

When you’re planning destination nuptials, you might as well go all out, right? So whether you’re thinking palms or pineapples, both of these invitations feature hand-lettered brush scripts, colorful watercolor and playful illustrations, perfect for a big day at the beach!

My favorite thing about these invitations is that they don’t necessarily scream WEDDING, but they will definitely let your guests know they’re in for a fun filled day—which means they’re also perfect for any other kind of bash! They can be easily modified for a piña colada themed birthday party, a backyard luau or foliage-filled dinner party. palm_6045

Abstract Ocean Wedding Invitation

ocean_5987You all know I love typography—especially at a large scale, and especially in a whimsical script. So of course this type-focused design was one of the first I created!

Originally designed for a beach side styled shoot, my ocean suite is abstract enough to work for a variety of events. I’m absolutely in love with the texture and color of that gorgeous light blue watercolor wash. I’ve also upgraded the paper in this suite to a textured stock that looks like watercolor paper and shows off the texture even more!

This suite can also be customized by changing the background color to match your plans for the big day. Just get in touch!

you & me part 4: Place cards

I fell in love with the idea of each guest being welcomed to our reception by a petite envelope especially for them. Each silver envelope held a card letterpress printed with a number that coordinated with their table. I forgot to consider that printing 160 tiny cards with 20 different numbers would be a huge undertaking (particularly when started just 10 days before the wedding), but the idea came to fruition exactly how I pictured.

I do have two extra sets of numbers 1 through 20, so if anyone’s interested, they’re available here.
