Winter Wonderland Wedding Invitation

Molly & Matthew

This unique winter wonderland wedding invitation was designed for a wedding at the iconic New York Public Library. We illustrated a one of a kind motif for the bac of the invitation which was inspired by haute couture beadwork and appliqués. The beadwork features winter berries, sequins and evergreen branches and was printed in pearlescent and navy foils on snow white velvet paper. The enclosure cards were tied together by a laser cut bellyband.

Since we are a studio specializing in custom work, we put together custom pricing for each project. For your convenience, below is a brief summary of the starting prices for both our collection and custom suites:

• $2,000 is the starting price for pre-existing designs for a 4-piece suite in 1-letterpress color. Suites with additional embellishments such as foil stamping, laser cut sleeves, pocket folders, etc. start at a higher price point of $3,000 and up.

• Custom invitations start at $2,750 for a 4-piece suite in 1-letterpress color.

• For budgets in the $1,000 range, many of our designs can be adapted to a economical price point using flat printing.

We began the process with some different invitation directions all centering around the idea of a Winter Wonderland wedding. Inspiration was taken from winter foliage, seasonal flowers and the New York Public Library, the couple’s wedding venue.

Laser Cut Designs

We explored different options for the laser cut component in the suite from various contemporary sleeves to winter inspired bellybands drawing from seasonal poinsettias and spruces.

No design is ever complete without a unique monogram which is the centerpiece of the invitation suite. We explored a variety of monograms ranging from classic to more contemporary styles.

Color Study

A color study helped us determine the right balance of red, and white or blue and white to achieve the perfect wintery feel. We explored these various combinations on the invitation, envelope, bellyband and envelope liner

We created a custom illustrated motif for the invitation suite which was inspired by fashion embroidery and beadwork. The design was inspired by spruce branches and winter berries. The illustration even features faux beads and sequins which were printed in tonal and matte blue foils.

Design Extension

Once the look and feel were defined, we embarked on the process of extending the design to all the pieces in the invitation suite including the enclosure cards, liners and envelopes. The winter lace motif that we developed was applied throughout the suite.

After the design of the laser cut bellyband is completed, our team then ensures that the artwork is engineered for the laser cutting process. We make sure that every cutout has the proper bridges and support built into the design for it’s structural integrity.
