This lovely invitation suite comes to us from Jessica of La Rue Louise based in St. Louis, MO! Here’s more about the invitation and the inspiration behind it from Jessica:
La Rue Louise offers both completely custom designed and ready-to-order wedding invitations, and the Swallows Invitation is part of our ready-to-order line. All of the designs in this collection have a vintage modern feel, including our Swallows suite. We were inspired by these beautiful swallows and decided to create an invitation design centered around them. They were originally hand-drawn illustrations that were discovered in an antique dictionary and then converted into digital illustrations.
See more after the cut!
We paired these illustrations with the bold, sweeping calligraphy flourishes to give the sense that the birds are soaring in flight. This design would work wonderfully for a couple planning an outdoor wedding and the combination of classic, vintage, and modern elements suits a variety of wedding styles.
Couples can choose from 84 ink colors and over 100 paper choices to customize the design, but we love it in metallic copper! Metallic hues are still very popular right now, but copper is less expected than gold and perfect for the autumn months. Like all of the invitations in our collection, the Swallows invitation is digitally printed by professional printers on thick 130 lb. cover stock and includes an A7 size invitation, 4 Bar size response postcard, and outer envelope printed with the return address in black ink.
Couples can customize the design with invitation backing layers, reception cards, informational cards, lined envelopes, ribbon, custom postage, genuine Swarovski crystals, and specialty enclosures including pocketfolders. Our ready-to-order invitations plus à la carte options are a great way for couples to get a custom look for their invitations without the custom price tag.
