At first glance, Ann & Paul’s crush-worthy, custom wedding suite by Anticipate Invitations is the picture of elegance. The beautiful invitations feature a warm and vibrant wash of watercolor, which carries through the suite in the upscale script typography, as well as in the lovely dahlia flower details. But the ultra elegant invitation suite hides an awesome detail in the form of some secret Star Wars action.
Michael from Anticipate Invitations shares:
Ann and Paul wanted something light and colorful with summer accents for their July wedding. In particular, they wanted to incorporate dahlias, their wedding flowers. Based on this inspiration, I came up with a playful and vibrant element using a watercolor wash in pinks, corals, oranges, and yellows.
One particular design detail that stands out is the small, hidden Yoda silhouette on the leaves of the dahlia on the information card. This Star Wars character played a fun part in Paul’s proposal to Ann, so adding this prominent, yet concealed detail brought their story to the design. Not to mention, it was recognizable enough for other guests to be in on the secret, too!
All of the invitation pieces were printed on white pearlescent paper to add formality and give the watercolor wash more dimension, which proved to be a great effect. The design also showed a level of practicality in the form of a larger RSVP card for guests to initial their meal choice. This saved the caterer time because guest information was more organized.
