Retro Inspired Mid Century Modern Stripe Wedding Invitations Martha Stewart Weddings


Having your work featured in any magazine or blog is an honor and Martha Stewart Weddings is certainly no exception. Many in the wedding industry consider it the "holy grail" because let's face it: Martha has built an empire based on aesthetics and we're all obsessed with all the ideas and details found in her magazine and blog. 


I was pretty excited to say the least when their team reached out and asked me to design this piece for a stripe theme story they were working on. I loved the challenge of using their retro stripe inspiration and knew I wanted to highlight the date. While I love how the entire suite turned out, my favorite parts were without a doubt the Save the Date and the mini program book. I love that the little program book came in a tiny vellum envelope so that guests could tuck it into a jacket pocket or purse and it wouldn't get damaged—cute and practical!

While Fig. 2 became knows for festive, fun, colorful invitations, Fig. 2 has grown up a bit and as I like to say is ready to design for Fig. 2's older sister who is modern, fashion forward, polished, and sophisticated. As a wedding invitation designer in Washington, D.C., you can imagine how flattered I was when when Washingtonian Bride & Groom reached out and asked me to create something new for their editorial spread on invitations. I knew it would be the perfect chance to re-introduce Fig. 2. 


The idea was to create a tone-on-tone suite. Some brides are color shy yet others are color lovers but still want a sophisticated look. In this case, I took inspiration from last year's Pantone Color of the Year, Greenery. I imagine lots of banana leaves or succulents in place of traditional floral arrangements, velvety green tablecloths, rich jade colored bowls, and the menus and place cards mounted to pieces of moss.


So what is tone-on-tone? Just that: pick one color and layer different shades or tones of it. In this case, green on green on green with a side of green. Or gray, or blush, or yellow, or any color your heart desires. 


This tone on tone wedding invitation suite that I designed in shades blush pink would work just as well and would satisfy both a color lover and a minimalist at the same time. So pretty yet chic!



So there you have it: marry your love for minimal and modern designs with your love of color and you'll have a wedding invitation that will let your guests know they are in for a very chic party!
