Event Design | Designing Your Invitation Suite

After you have a color palette, a few ideas, and a graphic designer, creating custom pieces that will make up your invitation suite may begin.

What's in an invitation suite? The actual wedding invitation and the inserts your guests will need - an RSVP, directions, a map, accommodation information, etc. You can take the suite a step further to include save-the-date announcements, and thank you notes. If you plan on using any paper products at your reception, it's a great touch to have coordinating items such as table numbers, escort cards, and dinner menus.

When working with a graphic designer, I prefer letting their imagination run wild with your initial idea and colors. That is exactly what I do when I work with Jill Childs of Events by I. Candy. I sat down with Jill and shared our color palette and the only idea I had - stripes. Jill created at least six options for me and I ended up picking this funky, unpredictable stripe she came up with. I never would have come up with this playful design on my own, but it was perfect for this shoot.

I realize not every couple will hire a designer, but everyone needs invitations! Some may prefer to print-their-own, while others will order from a reputable invitation company. There are SO many great options out there, and invitation companies make ordering all the pieces easy as pie! Look for a company that offers paper and printing in the colors you desire to make the process stress-free.
