Today we are sharing the paper design details and the cake design details with you guys! These little details can really stand out at your event and can help shape the theme and look you are going for this editorial shoot we really wanted to play up the mixed metal and metallic color palette to really give everything a polished glam feel. Check out how metallics were combined and used to create stunning details!
THE INVITATIONS & PAPER GOODS
“I’m currently in love with metallic papers and metallic ink and think it’s perfectly fitting for a winter wedding! I wanted to show how mixing different metals can really look amazing and classy. For the invitations I went with an antique gold tri-fold outer sleeve. On the inside I printed on a pear shimmer stock with metallic gold and silver ink. Love how these two ink colors look together! We wanted to bring in a subtle antler theme into this shoot and the perfect way to do that was in the invitations and paper details. The antler monogram + the metallic paper and ink made for the perfect combination of glam and rustic elegance for a winter mountain wedding. To seal the invitation off I used a silver glitter ribbon that was tied into a preppy bow for a polished presentation. Love how this pretty detail was used on the invitations and carried through to the stunning cake!
I also created antler monogram tags that hung on ornament favors. Love the idea of giving customized favors to your guests and there is no easier way then to add a custom tag with your monogram or logo. This is also a great way to carry your theme from your invitations through out your event.
My favorite detail from this shoot is the dinner menus. I used the antler monogram that was used on the invitations to keep with the theme. I printed silver ink on the antique gold stock for a unique metallic look. It can be fun to print on different colored stocks then the traditional whites and ivories. If I can give one tip to planning brides it would be to not neglect your dinner menus. This is a big focal point on your table design and can really add to the look and feel of your event. Menus can be the perfect way to bring a subtle them into your event and can also add some color to your table especially if you are trying to incorporate unique colors that aren’t seen in flowers. Work with your custom invitation designer to come up with something that coordinates with your invitation suite. They can also help you design and print coordinating escort cards and place cards.” – Megan Bailey, Pink Piggy Design
“The wedding cake incorporates several unexpected design elements. The idea of mixing gold and silver color schemes seemed dramatic and yet traditional at the same time. I wanted the cake design to reflect the same idea. The extra high middle tier adds drama with sugar sequins which were all individually placed and hand-painted with edible gold. The silver quatrafoil pattern contributes a graphic element and a sweet silver bow and sugar flower add a bit of femininity to the design.” – Julie Hill, Layers Cake
