Did you enjoy the peek of our Save the Dates I shared a while back? I’m super-excited to share the next round of wedding mail… our invitations from Artifact Uprising! As you’ll remember, our wedding color palette is mostly shades of blue and white. No surprise there, given what our house looks like, huh? I desperately wanted to have a few key elements to our invitations: letterpress, touches of metallic gold, and navy blue. Thankfully, I was able to get all of those elements (and more) with our invites!
Hot Off the Presses: Our Wedding Invitations from Artifact Uprising!
If you’ve ever planned a wedding or are in the process, you know just how hard it is to decide on just one invitation suite (hello, decision fatigue?). It wasn’t in the cards for us budget-wise to have custom calligraphy done, but I wanted letterpress so badly. Especially if it came with gold foil. I want to walk you through some of the special touches we added to our Artifact Uprising invitations to make them feel unique.
Also, before we dig in, Artifact Uprising was kind enough to give Jojotastic readers 15% off with code JoJo15! Act fast because the code expires on August 6, 2019.
Colorful premium paper
Paperstock makes all the difference when selecting a wedding invitation. Personally, I love a heavier stock because it feels so robust and rich. Our invitations are printed on premium paper that is 120 lb, acid-free, archival, and FSC Certified. Each invitation feels weighty and special. AU also offers a few options of paper color. We opted for the navy blue, but there are more subtle options, too, like white, blush, ivory, and stone.
Opt for foil
I love anything shiny and metallic. This is just an established fact. For a wedding though, it’s even more perfect! Most of our wedding decor will be a mix of different metallics, but I couldn’t help myself when I saw the gold. It’s soooo pretty. You can also choose between metallic burgundy, silver, copper, and black. The shiny gold foil really made the biggest difference in making our invitations look elevated and fancy.
Include an enclosure card
As much as I have tried to put all of the info on our wedding website, I know some people simply won’t read it. So we included an enclosure card that coordinates with the invitations. Because each component has fully customizable text templates, I adjusted ours to list the timeline of the big day.
Pre-print the addresses on the envelopes
I also didn’t have the time to dedicate to hand-lettering each envelope… nor do I have good enough handwriting! So, just like our save the dates, we chose to have the envelopes pre-addressed. What a time saver! The invitation suite arrived really quickly and we were able to stuff the envelopes and pop them all in the mail the very next day. If you’re a busy bride-to-be (aren’t we all??), this is the best way to save time and energy.
