The handpainted floral trend allows us to play with amazing floral accents, whether a traditional English country garden, a herb garden or tropical jungle. In this rustic example we have created a lilac and blush pink wedding invitation in postcard size with custom embossed fern backing, and a simple twine and monogram tie. This wedding invitation can also include a floral liner for the envelope. If your colour scheme or rustic wedding day flowers vary, let us know and we will work to the same format, but incorporate flowers and colours that appeal to you.
We had such fun working with our brides’ parents on this concept which is protea inspired and rustic. The invitation features a custom embossed protea on kraft and nude boards, with an inside pocket for any additional information. With illustrations supplied by Reach Dreams, the completed invitation has floral accents and a romantic palette of colours including blush pink, mint, duckegg and rasberry.
There are many ways to translate the rustic theme, combining it with the accent colour for your day. Lace, string, doilies, embossing, bunting, typewriter fonts and kraft are some of the beautiful elements we have to play with. Postcard size is most popular, sometimes straight edged, sometimes with rounded corners. In this example we have mounted the invitation printed on kraft to a grey outer board. The invitation has a belly band made from card, jute string and a personalised label. We printed and embossed tiny little polka dots just to add a touch of the coral accent. A simple lace or bakers tie is also very pretty on completion.
This wedding invitation is beautifully subtle in pale pink, linen and charcoal. It combines old typewriter fonts with a layer of kraft board to keep with the rustic theme. The invitation incorporates embossing and is embellished with pale pink lace, white raffia and pinhead pearls.
Apart from the rustic and vintage themes continuing to be popular, so to is embossing. Fuchsia are able to incorporate embossing in your colours using an embossing tool, but we do like to incorporate it into a more contemporary style. This charming invitation is made up of cream, silver and kraft coloured boards and has a lace and jute string bellyband. This play on the rustic theme is still very aesthetic and modern, a slightly different take on an established winner.
Peony roses are a beautiful flower to incorporate into your wedding stationery, especially if they feature on your tables or as part of the bridal party bouquets. In this example, a peony rose has been cut out of a square invitation in kraft, though this can be done in any colour. The format is as such that when open, the rose is still visible on the left of the central content area. It really is a statement flower and looks extremely elegant on completion.
Using natural textured board, this rustic wedding invitation in dusty pink, duck egg and grey is a beautifully simple design combining colour and texture with creative font usage. Fuchsia Designs will also sketch your venue if you would like to use this in the design. Particularly nice if your country wedding venue is a family farm. In this example we have opted for pink and white twine but more often than not we will create a belly band using hessian, board and ribbon.
Translating a brief isn’t always easy, but the outcome can sometimes exceed even our own expectations, as this rustic country style wedding stationery reflects. A love of daisies, country and old school elegance evoked this daisy inspired laser cut invitation in white with stone, mid blue and claret accent colours. The resulting design is a triumph which not only complimented the venue but which we are pleased to call exclusively ours!
