Brad and Erica's Cool Colors

I met with Brad and Erica back in January. I did Erica's sister's wedding invitations last year so we had to do something completely different. They came to me with awesome colors! Fuchsia, orange and white - put all together, they look so pretty. They wanted to incorporate as much color without breaking the bank. They fell in love with the folded card look so we started with a metallic folded white card and accented the main invite with metallic fuchsia and orange. The main invite itself was printed on a matte white paper. The band is made with orange metallic paper with a satin fuchsia ribbon running through the middle. They choose to not use a reception card to cut costs since there ceremony and reception were at the same site. I designed a monogram for them to use on the front of their invite and it uses the fuchsia as well to coordinate everything together.  Another option that Brad and Erica choose to save money was to assemble the invites themselves. This saves money and is fun for those who have crafty friends and family who are willing to help. The one thing I loved about working with them is that they really worked together on this invite. I got emails from both of Erica and Brad throughout the process, which was really fun.
