Destination Thailand/Passport Wedding Invite – By Creative Box
Wedding stationery options are literally limitless. For those of us obsessed with paper and font, texture and feel, the wedding invitation supersedes most elements of a wedding when it comes to creating the theme you want for your special day. You see, the very first hint of what’s to come is generated by the invitations that the happy guest receives in the mail.
Creative Box Founder and Designer Ritu Patel, recently designed a version of the extremely popular passport invitation, for a client having a destination wedding in the beautiful county of Thailand. Ritu talks us through the creative process and her vision for these gorgeous invites.
- The Brief:
The brief from my client was to incorporate the bride and grooms wedding colour scheme, blue and coral – particularly because they are having a beach wedding in Phuket, Thailand. It was an open brief, allowing us to design whatever we thought was appropriate. The bride and groom also wanted their own personal monogram.
- The Mood Board:
Our mood board sets the beginning of the design of the invitation. It allows us to showcase the colours, keeping in mind our client’s request.
- The thought process:
The whole thought process behind the cover of the invitation was as follows:
– We used authentic Thai Art (prints of Thailand) as the main design on which the monogram rests.
– The use of elephants on either side of the monogram is significant, as they are the national animals of Thailand.
– Lastly, the type i.e. the initials of the bride and groom are written in a font very similar and identical to the Thai language – however the letters are in English to ensure legibility for the guests.
- Inside the invitation:
Since we were creating a passport invitation, the first page was recreated to match the actual passport, all the information about the couple has been shared here. For example, the date of their first meeting, the date of proposal and finally the wedding date. Following which is the formal invitation to the wedding.
The rest of the pages were filled with information on travel, accommodation, island transport and things to do in Phuket. This makes it a concise invitation.
The envelope was in the colour blue- coordinated with the invitation.
