Modern Calligraphy Wedding Invitation


I recently created this modern styled wedding invitation suite that was a fun change from my usual projects. I love the simplicity and clean lines of the chevron design.  The colors carried throughout the invitation were a lovely grey and bright yellow (the pictures from my camera appear more green).

Clear labels printed with the same chevron pattern were used for the mailing address.  The label had enough room for the return address and adds a nice design element to the envelope.  This is also a great alternative to hand lettering when you’re on a tight budget.

I chose a simple hand lettered look in all lower case to highlight the modern feel.  I love the contrast this creates when paired with the simple block font.

An RSVP postcard is another money saving option.  Not only do you eliminate the cost of an envelope, but the postal rate for postcards is less than for envelopes.

I was thrilled to work with my lovely Michigan bride to create this clean look.

Happy wedding Taylor and Jacob!

    Debi…This is such a great idea for an invitation. I especially like the yellow dot on the back and it’s message!
