Not your grandmother's stationary.


Invitations are such an important part of a wedding. For most of your guests, this will be their first look into what your wedding will be like. Don't be afraid to show a little personality. Your guests will be excited to see something new and different than the traditional black engraved lettering on white cardstock.

These are actually Brandi's wedding invitations and they set the tone for the wedding in a couple of different ways. First they feature Mayan art which is a large part of the culture in Rivera Maya where there wedding was held. Secondly, the artwork was drawn by the Brandi's mother. So even though she lives in Kansas, hundreds of miles away, Brandi's mom was now able to be a main factor in the overall theme for the wedding....right from the beginning.

The contrasting striped card has more of a modern tone which blended the idea of a modern hotel setting within Mexico. The colors reflect the dark tones of the wood used throughout the resort, the blue of the ocean and the green of the mangroves.

I think we can all agree that these fabulous invites lend a lot of personality to what was a very special celebration!
