Elegant Botanical Invitations for a Hawaiian Wedding

Elegant Botanical Invitations for a Hawaiian Wedding | Jen Simpson Design (photo credit: Ashley Bee Photography)

If you love beautiful botanical illustrations and classically elegant typography, then this custom wedding invitation suite for a Hawaiian wedding will have your heart going pitter-pat. The gorgeous suite was created by Jen Simpson Design for Emily and Derek, who were married at the equally gorgeous Haiku Sugar Mill in Hawaii this past November.

Jen shares about the creative process and inspiration for this beautiful project:

Emily and Derek wanted their invitations to have a tropical feel without clichéd hibiscus flowers and tropical colors. We created a custom enclosure with a botanical print of the Hoya Pottsii, a plant native to Hawaii, to give the suite a local touch. We then designed the invitation in a semi-traditional layout with a rich script font to give the design some depth and added vintage ornament touches that are reminiscent of the sugar mill’s architecture.

Emily knew that she wanted letterpress, and we had Boxcar Press print the invitations in a beautiful, rich coffee brown color. We flat printed the other pieces and had a custom printed Envelofold made by Envelopments to enclose the suite so, when her guests received their invitations, they would open up like little presents.

Minted Wedding Invitations 2015 : Floral Fantasy

I’m in invitation lovers’ heaven right now because Minted just released their 2015 wedding invitation collection! The designers that are a part of the Minted community know how to create invitations that are the perfect blend of beautiful, trendsetting, and kickass, and over the next few weeks I’ll be featuring some of my favorites, as well as the new and ongoing trends that I’m seeing among the new crop of designs.

Today, I’m all about the florals. I’ve said it before, and I’m sure that I’ll say it again: florals are always in style. But I love seeing fresh takes on this classic motif and have spotted a number of lovely, floral-themed designs among the new Minted wedding invitations. Floral frames, particularly oval-shaped frames, are emerging as a big trend to watch, as are layered florals and stylized, watercolor, and handpainted floral sprays and bouquets.

I’m also loving the deep, rich color palettes that we’re seeing. Shades of wine and burgundy, coral pink, poppy red, indigo, deep teal, and golden brown are popping up all over, and these gorgeous hues are just perfect paired with florals.

Here are some of my favorite florals from the Mnted 2015 wedding invitation collection:
