Wedding Invitations Go Green

Foliage and florals make for invitations with love in full leaf.

{1} Lush Life
You can almost hear the palm trees swaying when you open this invitation, which marries natural elements with contemporary simplicity. Ashley Austin, owner of Fine Day Press, was inspired by the process of painting when she dreamed up this watercolor palm motif. With a minimal look in mind, Austin paired deep greenery with black text; the mixture of sans-serif and delicate calligraphy-inspired font styles adds a modern romantic feel. This design is printed on luxe cotton stock, lending a lovely, light finish.

{2} Loving Nature
Falling in love just comes naturally. This suite was inspired by Mother Nature, featuring blooming graphics and textural elements. Jen Krause, assistant designer, and Bonnie Kuhl, owner of Archer and Olive, collaborated on this romantic design. Kuhl created the watercolor and gouache floral wreath motif, and her love of the outdoors is reflected in the details, like the tiny flowers and leaves and the twine wrapped around the suite. Copper ink calligraphy graces the seafoam glass tiles, adding a touch of sleek modernity to this natural beauty.

{3} Tropical Paradise
Mai tai, anyone? Whether it’s for a destination getaway or a tropics-inspired soirée, this showstopping suite is sure to catch the eye of every party-goer. Averi Stene, owner of Averi with an Eye, chose mint and teal tropical foliage as the focal point, with an accent of coral for a touch of brightness. The 3D laser-cut place card with scrolling white calligraphy is a chic addition to this vacation-ready suite.
