Happy Tuesday! Alicia from Akimbo is here to talk about her Regency invitation line, inspired by one of the cards donated in our July WeddingInviteLove paper goods giveaway. Gorgeous illustrations and typography here — enjoy!
I’m delighted to share with you how one of my latest invitation lines came to be.
Late last year I launched the Regency collection, the first items being some fun greeting cards that combined old-fashioned Victorian engraved illustrations and text with modern sayings and colour combinations.
The cheeky ‘It’s about time’ engagement card worked so well it was begging to be made into an engagement party invitation.
From there I decided to create a full wedding stationery line.
One of my favourite ways to personalise invitations is to make the RSVPs a bit more interactive, like this fill-in-the-blank story.
I prefer save the dates that don’t totally give away the design of the invitation, so this one is purely typographic.
There’s only so many times you can show a bicycle in your wedding stationery without the theme being complete overkill, so the reception details are in the same style but with varying illustrations.
As well as the penny farthing design, I also have two other styles and plan to add more to suit every wedding theme.
Thanks for having me tell you all a little bit about Akimbo’s Regency collection.
