As I mentioned, I really pushed the envelope (Ha—get it? Okay, okay—I know, that was bad!) this season. I ventured away from my signature aesthetic to create invitation suites that would stand out as unique designs, make an impact in print, and really capture the theme of each shoot. When I received word that I would be collaborating on a 1970’s-inspired suite, I was over the moon. I love groovy 70s vibes, in everything from music and movie costumes to graphic design.
Lots of people commented that this would be a tough theme, but I had no reservations about diving headfirst into this funky color palette and groovy design. Inspired by a groovy 70’s vibe, this invitation suite captures the best of both worlds: bold typography and elegant calligraphy—all topped with subtle details that speak to the audacious bride. Pairing deep greens and bright oranges with brown earth tones brought a distinctive style to life; the rich color palette keeps this suite rooted in a retro aesthetic, complemented by bold typography that evokes a 70’s feel. My hand-lettered calligraphy script elevates the design with a touch of sophistication appropriate to a wedding invitation suite.
My favorite part? Gosh, it’s hard to pick! I had a lot of fun playing with chunky typography… how often is it that a bride is bold enough to embrace an oversized orange ampersand? And that unorthodox color combo on the Save the Date is still giving me heart-eyes. Aside from that, the macrame backdrop from Beautiful Event Rentals served as a particular inspiration; I hand-illustrated the macrame weaving and created a custom pattern from my drawing—seen throughout the suite as a subtle design detail and as an envelope liner pattern.
Overall, this suite captures a funky retro style for the unintimidated couple who is bold enough to embrace a wonderfully groovy ’70s concept.
It just goes to show how personalized your wedding invitations can be if you’re not afraid to run with an out-of-the-box theme. I hope you like how it turned out, and don’t forget to pick up your copy of the latest Brides of North Texas magazine to see it in print!
