Custom Starfish pocketfold wedding invitation, menu card, program. placecard, favor tag, signage and rehearsal dinner invite

The Jersey Shores was the setting for this summer beach wedding.
 Starfish was the main theme.
We created a beautiful custom aqua metallic pocketfold.
Raffia was wrapped around the pocketfold holding it closed.
A custom cut starfish adorned the outside of the pocketfold
and the raffia was looped through a hole in the starfish
creating a very custom look.

A darker color metallic envelope created a nice contrast for
the custom lining of the same color as the invite.
 A watermark of the couples names and the date of their wedding
was printed using the same color as the envelope.

Each piece of this invitation ensemble was custom designed
to carry the theme of the starfish and swirls.
Each piece had it's own look.
The response card was a postcard style card.
We printed the guests names on the card
so all the guest had to do was check the box
whether or not they were attending.
This is a great feature as sometimes the guests
forget to fill in their names and you are left
trying to guess who the card came from.
By using a postcard style response you not only save
on the return postage you save in the cost
of not having to buy the response envelope.

The bride was her guest to be informed of
the events of the evening so we custom
created a menu card that flipped up so
we had an area for the menu
and an area for the events,
again carry her starfish theme.

For the table numbers, the bride wanted to feature pictures
of her and the groom at their favorite place. We created a
custom frame with the starfish theme for the photos and each
card was then named by the place it represented.
For the matching place card, we created a two part card.
One card had the guests name and the other card had
the picture of the table they would be seated at. This worked
perfect for the bride as then she could match tables with the
guests at the last minute taking the pressure off trying to
give us a final layout for printing. Doing it this way gives you
the option to change your seating chart should you need to
at the last minute. The two cards were then tied to a starfish
that the couple gave to their guests.

Above is a custom cut favor tag we also created
that was tied to a favor box.

Here is just one of the custom signs we created.
This one featured the couples signature drink specials.

We had fun with the wedding program and
sprinkled some sand on the cover
printing their names underneath,
and mounting a custom cut starfish.
The pages were held together with raffia.

For the rehearsal dinner we used a picture of the beach as
our main design, writing the couples names in the sand.
A custom addressed envelope completed the look.
