These wedding invitations were for a summer wedding and I love how the diagonal stripes panned out in this suite. While the Chevalier typeface for the bride and groom’s names comes with a horizontal stripe, we opted to use the open-face version of the font and create a diagonal stripe on the interior instead. That has the same alignment as the diagonal stripes that make up the border of the invite, and then for some contrast, we reflected the diagonal in the envelope liners so as to create more interest with the single ink color.

These invitations were printed as a single ink, on our house 110# cotton paper, paired with matching envelopes and RSVP postcards. I love how the bride elected to leave empty space on the RSVP so that her guests could fill in a note of congratulations on there instead of the standard layout that so often accompanies RSVP cards. What a great idea!
