Vintage Flora Wedding Invitations

June 3, 2011







Here are some wedding invitations I custom designed for Megan & Paul.

Megan, an art historian and artist, contacted me after seeing some of my other invitation designs. She was especially inspired by Elizabeth Blackwell’s “A Curious Herbal” as well as vintage French ephemera such as vintage soap and pharmacy labels. Megan and Paul are having a casual & intimate wedding celebration at Megan’s parents’ home in the beautiful English garden. All of these things inspired me greatly when designing Megan and Paul’s invitations.

A unique idea we had was to include the details card on the RSVP – you simply snip off the details and return the RSVP.

I used a combination of vintage Flora illustrations with typography to help reflect the French ephemera look. We printed these in 2-colors on a textured, cream paper. The bride & groom were thrilled with the final result.

Other custom invitations:
• Sam & Rob’s Earthy Art Nouveau invitations
• Stephanie & Max’s Aqua and Emerald Letterpress invitations
• Carmen & TJ’s Modern Topography invitations
