No. 1 – Frontispiece – Literary Wedding Invitation

Don’t you just adore antique books? That moment of opening the cover, of peeking at the title page and realizing that it’s the beginning of a journey. The feel of the words letterpress printed into the soft paper. This letterpress wedding invitation, inspired by the frontispiece in an antique book, feels like a fitting beginning in the marriage of a literary-minded bride and groom.

The invitation design, with a mixture of copperplate script and classic typography, lends itself to a range of personalities and types of wedding. It works beautifully with the Live Oak branch we illustrated for a plantation wedding “beneath the oaks”, or let us customize the design to suit your wedding. A hand-drawn monogram of your initials. An illustration of a favorite flower, or a picture-perfect wedding venue that should take center stage. We’ll create the perfect illustration for your special day.

We love adding in the subtle references to books in this literary wedding invitation. A details card in a long narrow format with a bit of silk ribbon that looks like a favorite bookmark. An envelope liner with a marble pattern, recalling the end sheets in beautiful antique books. Add a pocket to keep all the pieces of your wedding suite organized and lend a splash of color.
