Autumn leaves invitation

Brief

Create a wedding reception a5 invitation, decoration at the venue will be autumn leaves to represent the fact that the couple are older and the event is in the autumn too.

 

Rationale

Initially I struggled to come up with ideas for this, as I couldn't get past the fact they wanted dead leaves to celebrate a new relationship. I was looking at it from the wrong perspective. So I did some research for inspiration, it is quite a popular theme for wedding invites. My new perspective was to think more along the lines of romantic walks and a party atmosphere, which is where I came up with the solution of leaves in autumn colours blowing in the wind like confetti or streamers. I added a stylised photo of the couple as well. The bride was thrilled with the result.

 

Production

These were printed on cream card two invites from one sheet of a4. They fit inside a standard a5 envelope.

 

Follow-up work

I created a version of this invite in my Zazzle store, which won a Today's Best award and I have had a couple of sales from it too.
