One of our most popular wedding invitation designs is our Shelley Collection. The invitation suite printed in black and white (or black and ivory), has a more steampunk feel to it. Simply add color to the palette and the design emits an entirely new feel to it! This vintage wedding invitation suite in a PLUM and LAGOON color palette and printed on ivory metallic cover, definitely gives it a more vintage and romantic feel!
If you’re a lover of steampunk, here is a great article by Jessica McDaniel from Pocketful of Sunshine Event Design. Check it out for some steampunk wedding inspiration! She featured the layered wedding invitation from our Shelley Collection.
This particular Bride and Groom inquired about doing an RSVP postcard for their vintage wedding invitation suite, instead of a typical RSVP card with envelope. And of course, we were happy to accommodate them! We designed a 4×6 inch, double-sided card, with the “to” address printed on each. The RSVP postcard is a great option to help save on postage cost, as it would require a $0.35 stamp versus a standard $0.49 stamp. It’s also a great way to keep record of all your RSVPs, as the postcard would require your guest(s) to hand write their name(s) and address in the “from” section. Making any sense yet? Well, believe it or not, many guests are unfamiliar with wedding etiquette and they do not know they are supposed to fill in their name on the line next to the “M” on the RSVP card. The “M” is for the guest to complete the suffix, such as “Mr.”, “Mrs.”, “Miss”, or “Ms.”. And sometimes guests simply just forget to write their names.
When using a typical RSVP card with envelope, there are a few other ways to help record your RSVPs. You can have each RSVP envelope pre-addressed with both the “to” and “from” addresses or you can have a small inconspicuous number printed or handwritten on the back of the RSVP card. The number would correspond to a master list you keep on-hand which shows the guest name and their number. That way, if they reply and mail a blank card, you know exactly who it was! Now you’re able to contact them, if needed.
