Envelope Wedding Invitation

Bespoke Watercolour Pastel Envelope Wedding Stationery by Bevolee

I get a buzz from designing something that's off-the-wall, so I wanted to experiment with an idea that has been brewing in my noggin and bring it to life for our own wedding stationery. I was (and still am) an addicted pen-pal writer as a child and absolutely adored writing in those letter-combined-envelopes or 'letterlopes', which I often call them. I was thinking that this idea could be quite nifty for wedding stationery and cut down on wasting on an external envelope (as well as reducing the cost, if I may add!).

Mixed pastel colours, in particular blush pink, lavender and mint are pretty much the theme for our wedding, as they are also the colours of the bridesmaids dresses and the confetti in the balloons! I also love watercolours and often paint in that medium - I love their effect when soaked into textured paper and the tones they produced when layered. The invitations were printed on thick textured paper often used for watercolour painting.

When my printed invitations arrived through the post, I almost had to be picked off the floor - they looked gorgeous! What I needed to do next was fold them, cut out the 'RSVP' and 'Detail' circle cards, pop the circles cards and the small pre-stamped envelopes into the letterlopes... and to finish it off, seal it with a personalised sticker!
