We’ve been working with acrylic (also known as perspex) since 2015 and it has been wonderful experimenting with it and discovering new ways to finish or package it. It’s important to note that acrylic should not be confused with glass. Perspex gives the see-through impression of glass, but it is in face a heavy duty clear plastic. In this particular example of a acrylic wedding invitation, we have etched the perspex with content and floral detail. We placed the invitation together with guest information insert into a personalised pocket. The colour trends in 2019 were burgundy, blush, gold and sometimes black though we can make up any invitation to suit your colour scheme. We used gold mirror vinyl for this particular perspex wedding invitation, and we can either etch or print the content on to the acrylic.
Printed vellum is a lovely way to incorporate floral elements of your wedding invitation. In this example we have printed and cutout a printed floral vellum outer, in to which the invitation and inserts sits. The invitation is finished with a bellyband of satin ribbon with options of including a wax seal.
The versatility of vellum is undeniable as it compliments any colour scheme or theme. We can expect to see plenty of vellum and wax seals this year, this invitation being no exception. The invitation is printed on a shimmer cream, flat mounted to navy and placed, together with guest information cards in a vellum wrap. The invitation is finished with a navy ribbon and gold wax seal bearing the bride and groom’s initials.
