The Secret Garden is an iconic book and we loved the story. When Aurelia asked us to design a mint and gold wedding invitation with a secret garden theme, we jumped at the chance. The invitation is mint velvet – yes, velvet – and we printed it with gold foil in a brocade floral pattern. On the front, we custom made gold metal medallions and filled them with antique gold metallic enamel. The A and M monogram is laser cut from gold metal and attached it to the medallion. We made the invitation into a book to go along with the theme of the book, The Secret Garden.
The wedding is taking place at Castello di Vincigliata in Firenze, Italy. Aurelia and Michal needed their invitation in English and in Polish. We accomplished this by writing the English in a serifed capitalized font and then wrote the Polish in the same serif font but in title case and italicized. Since this was a destination wedding and only their closest family and friends are attending, no response card was needed. We printed a pocket with the same brocade pattern to hold their information card about travel and accommodations. Each mint and gold wedding invitation was mailed in a custom mailer box printed with the guest’s address in a metallic gold ink.
