Here it is: the Summer Fiesta Wedding Invitation Suite!

Lucky for me, my friend Caroline gave me complete "creative freedom" to go about designing her invites. After putting together an inspiration board for her, we had a quick meeting to decide on her colors. Paper samples in hand, I met her (in the parking lot of the Grove) and we came up with the basic palette: kraft paper accented by blue, white, and a collection of shades between peach and poppy.

To coordinate with Caroline's LA-garden-party-meets-cinco-de-mayo vibe, I created with the following graphics: a floral design inspired by Mexican tiles, a pair of paisley boots, and a paisley pinata. I love the boots so much that I just may make some stationery out of it...

Here's a list of everything included in the suite:


5 x 7 Main Invitation hand screen printed on kraft paper in white ink

5 x 3.5 RSVP Postcard hand screen printed on kraft paper in poppy ink on one side and peachy-pink ink on the other

7 x 5 Folded Map (and Info) digitally printed on white matte paper

A7 Envelope from Paper Source in Papaya

Wrap-Around Label inkjet-printed on white matte label paper

Tissue Paper Fringe Belly Band cut by hand, then sewn across the top

Vintage Stamps (for the photos)

Summer Fiesta | Cinco de Mayo | Wedding Inspiration Pin It

As mentioned previously, we are not wedding planners. *WE DO* create fun and unique wedding paper elements, though! When asked to help with our friends' wedding, we went to work finding inspirational images for a summer wedding with an LA-garden-party-meets-cinco-de-mayo vibe.

Now, we're sharing it with YOU. For our official Summer Fiesta Wedding Inspiration Board (the big printable PDF): click HERE.

Materials for the casual and creative affair will include tissue paper, cowboy leather, bright pastels, succulents, and vintage decor.
