“Is damask out of style?” she asked me at our first meeting.
“I just don’t want it to look ‘oldish’ you know?” she said. “I’m already what I’d call a ‘mature bride’…”
Then you’ve come to the right place.
Careful not to go down the road often traveled (who hasn’t done damask?), I set out to bring a fresh perspective to stationery designed with a damask motif. I played with scale and using different sections of the damask. I paired it with other patterns. I reversed out the inks for an all-black out-of-town reception card. I proposed non-traditional accents, such as a black rsvp envelope. (Black for a wedding?! Absolutely. Why not?)
The result was this bold, graphic and fresh take on a traditional (and dare I say, potentially boring) damask invitation suite that even the youngest of young brides (and the maturest of mature brides) would be delighted to call their own.
My favorite card just might be the all-black Memphis reception card. Perfect for a formal house party!
The main invitation card alone is oh.so.romantic.
And more than 600 envelopes later… They were all lined! Including the outer, the rsvp and the thank you note envelopes. Whew!
