I was so excited when Lela New York was asked by Brides.com to redesign the Royal Wedding Invitations of Prince William and Kate Middleton! Here is our version ;)
Mixing both classic and modern details I wanted to use our very popular silk gatefolds for the invite accessory and keeping the actual invitation card classic. We made a portrait style invitation and used a royal navy for the silk color that was custom embroidered in a deeper navy to give a rich texture. A gold version was also applied on the inside of the invitation which can be seen when the invite is opened. The center closure is a custom made emblem that has the Royal "ER" engraved in the center and adorned with crystal details.
The invitation itself is a cream extra thick cotton stock that has been beveled and printed in a traditional all script gold engraving.
The whole invitation would be sent in a custom diecut envelope that has a custom printed liner in a matching gold pattern.
Here is a closer look!
What do you guys think?
