Hello! My fiancé and I are looking for a design for our wedding invitations. I plan on purchasing recycled flat paper and envelopes and printing at home. The paper color I’m considering is going to be something ranging from ivory to a light beige or even light taupe. We are looking for something that is customized as I can't seem to find anything I like that also fits our budget. So the general asthetic is simple, possibly botanical/nature elements, elegant and classical with a teensy touch of modern flair. For color, earth tones work well.
About us: We are very eco-conscious and some of the things we do together are: plant a vegetable garden in summer, hike, travel abroad, get out of the city where we live to spend time in nature, cook at home and dine out. I’ll also describe us individually: me (bride-to-be)—wine lover (sommelier for work), big home cook, loves dining out, vintage clothes/jewelry and girlie stuff. Not as outdoorsy as him but into natural living if that makes sense. Him—pilot by trade (huge travel lover), outdoorsy (camping, hiking, scuba, etc), huge snowboarder, also into healthy/natural living, has a thing for old maps.
We both come from traditional Italian families so for invitations we are leaning definitely toward simple/traditional/classic, but we want to add our own flair and not be boring. He doesn’t like too much flowery stuff but there can certainly be botanical elements as long as they are more minimal. I'm not totally against the "grapes" aesthetic but it usually looks cheesy to me. The venue is a catering facility on a vineyard in eastern Long Island. It will be a somewhat formal event but I do want there to be an air of casualness to it. The ceremony will be outside weather permitting in June with a tented cocktail hour and ballroom reception. Night time wedding.
Another thing is that I have two sets of parents… one who is paying for more of the wedding—the rest is on us. Two sets of names have to go above my name as the “hosts”, and I would like my fiancé’s parents names under his so they don’t feel left out. I might also need to carry over an element of the design for a response card although not sure at this point. Thank you for your time and consideration!
