Florals are a timelessly popular choice for a wedding invitation theme, but Anticipate Invitations took floral inspiration to the next level with this beautiful wedding suite by seamlessly incorporating pieces of real flowering thyme, which add a wonderfully unique dimension to this soft and romantic wedding suite.
The soft green and lavender invitations were inspired by the save the date postcard, which features a fantastic custom stamp and a vintage image of the main road that guests would be traveling from Los Angeles to the wedding. The beautiful script used in the custom stamp is echoed throughout the wedding suite, tying everything together perfectly.
Michael Musser, the designer, shares:
Although the bride, Bethany, didn’t have an exact idea in mind to start, it was evident from our initial consultation that she was drawn aesthetically to lace and wildflowers. She hoped for something romantic and sweet to complement her outdoor reception, which was to be held in a local art gallery’s sculpture garden.
Beginning with the Save the Date, we involved vintage touches with the ultimate goal of personalizing the suite specifically to the couple. The solution found us, with an antique postcard depicting the main road her wedding guests would be driving from Los Angeles. A customized stamp was the perfect finishing touch.
The production challenge was getting the thyme on the invitation itself. Each one required two small holes be punched by hand, and then a needle was threaded through both holes to raise the paper surface between the holes. This allowed the thyme stalk to easily slide through the holes without damage. While this portion did prove to be tricky, it allowed for each invitation’s flower to be completely different naturally, thus giving Bethany and Ron the sweet and personal touch they were looking for.
