Jen and Paul wanted a very simple design for their black and white colour scheme. We went with stripes as this was what they had used for their online Save the Dates. Their first date was at a coffee shop, and Paul was a coffee lover, so we wanted to incorporate this idea into the invites, without it being noticeably “coffee” designed. We created a swirl pattern in a very pale water colour, so that is sat behind all the text on the invite, information booklet and RSVP card. With the black belly band, the swirl was noticeably clearer, as it was lighter black on black. The whole package was finished off with hand calligraphy initials on antique gold ink.
