DC sunset: invitations

to continue on the road of building a wedding using the DC sunsets as an inspiration, i was on the hunt for an invitation suite that played off the color palette from the previous post without being too theme-y. then i remembered a feature in the spring issue of martha stewart weddings.



these beautiful invitations were designed by thussfarrell for gail simmons' august 2008 wedding. i think they're a perfect combination of the colors in the inspiration palette, while still maintaining a slight sense of masculinity in the type.

but maybe a suite of letterpress invitations isn't in your budget - so i've scoured the web for similar styles that can be flat printed.



the first thing i'd do though? shoot an email over to the wonderfully talented printable press or 4th and folded (or any creative etsy seller for that matter) and ask if they'd be willing to design something similar that is within your budget. both of these designers will produce a pdf file which you can use to print the invitations yourself, saving money. doing it this way also gives you slightly more control over the finished product and the ability to add custom pieces to the suite. you get what you want AND you can control your budget. its a win-win if you ask me.
