Becca & Bobby's Blue and Lace Wedding Invitations

On Wednesday morning, Luke and I hopped in the car and drove 12 hours from our home in SC to Buffalo, NY. In a group of four very close girlfriends, I was the first to get married; Becca is the second! Her wedding today is going to be a time of joy and celebration, and I've already had plenty of opportunity for that as I've reconnected with lots of college friends these past few days. It's been a blast and I can't wait for the wedding (and to see her in her gorgeous wedding gown).

In light of Becca's wedding, I wanted to share her invitations which I had the privilege of creating for her. I wanted them to be sleek and cohesive, yet playful, using only blue and white with a touch of red (to match the colors in Bobby's kilt). Becca is wearing a lace dress, so I collected spools of wide lace for jackets and tied it up with the same red embroidery thread you saw on her save the dates.

Becca wanted me to incorporate the thistle, a scottish flower full of symbolism, into her wedding suite, so I added this detail to match the floral wreath at the top.

The RSVP cards were two-sided to make room for a heartfelt note from guests.

Each envelope was hand-stamped and embossed in a crisp white. Like the addressing I did with a white pen, it really stood out against the rich blue envelopes. I loved how the ornate florals of the monogram on this stamp tied into the lace details of the invitation jackets.

 

I'm so happy for you, Bobby and Becca!
