I’ve just been DYING to share this wedding stationary suite with you guys ever since I received it in the mail…and now that I’ve gotten the professional images, I finally can! Thanks so much Maegan Hall for capturing all the beauty of this ensemble. Night after night I sat down with my BFF (Yakira Maynard, Top Luxury Realtor at Palmerhouse Properties) and looked for ways to create the perfect invitation suite for her wedding. We looked at different fabrics, fonts, foils, and boxes.
Who would have thought THIS would be the result of countless late night conversations over Lemon Drops with my BFF??
This invitation suite is made up of a cumulation of her favorite design elements from various past invitations. Essentially, she decided to create a stationary suite that embodied all the things she loved about each of her favorite invites…all within 3 perfectly planned invitations for 3 carefully curated guest lists. And all for the same event! Here’s the three types of invitations she created:
- Luxurious boxed invitations (for our closest friends and family)
- A Gate Folio (for the remainder of our guest list)
- A passport Invitation for those who wanted to join the group honeymoon
Every invitation within the suite was custom designed and crafted using Black Plike “velvet touch” paper and adorned with our wedding monogram and tag line “Once in a while, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairytale” foiled in gold.
Inside of the box, also made of Plike, one would find three separate levels, one atop the other, that housed a 12 ply invite on the first level, an enclosure envelope with all “The Details” on the second, and the honeymoon passport on the third. Upon opening the box, guests are greeted with the stature of our families new last name… “PRISE.” On the other side is an endearing photo of the bride and groom, with golden script strategically placed to formally request the honor of the guest’s presence. The invitation is made complete by adding gold trimming along the sides. A step below inside the “The Details,” one would find enclosure cards outlining the invited guests, the schedule of events, the requested attire, travel accommodations and child care to as well as as response card…. Just to name a few. Alas, inside of the passport were 4 pages detailing the impending rendezvous with the Mexican sun, and an invitation to partake in all of the “Adult – Only” fun…
Inside the folio, one would find the exact same extensions of love just on a tad of an understated scale: the photo invitation mounted to the center of the folio, atop gold trim, with custom scalloped pockets on each side housing all “The Details” and the passport.
And last but not least, The “Passport To Paradise” sealed with The United States Crest a’la Y&J style simply sealed inside of a calligraphy lined plike envelopes.
DISCLAIMER: I’m not the coordinator for this wedding, I’m simply sharing because I love all things gorgeous. I hope you enjoyed swooning over this gorgeous stationary suite as much as I did.
