Designer Nathalie Carrigan of 120 Water Street shows us that affordable and classically elegant can go hand in hand with this green and black wedding suite that she designed for Andrea and Christopher’s Memorial Day weekend Mackinac Island, Michigan wedding.
Andrea was looking for a luxurious wedding invitation that wouldn’t break the bank. She was planning Memorial Day weekend wedding on Mackinac Island at a gorgeous historical hotel (appropriately called the Grand Hotel), and she wanted to incorporate bits and pieces from the island in her stationery. We printed digitally (to save on costs) but used ultra thick 100% cotton cardstock and envelopes, which really gave these invitations a special feel.
On Mackinac Island, there are no motorized vehicles, so all transportation is by bicycle or horse drawn carriage. We used the Grand Hotel logo, which is a horse and carriage, and turned that into Andrea and Chris’ wedding monogram. On her RSVP card, we incorporated a silhouette of the Mackinac bridge, and on hersave the dates we incorporated a silhouette of the Grand Hotel – the exact location on the large porch where the ceremony was to take place.
