Bold Wedding Invitations

Wotjek and Ann wanted an invitation that represented the four nationalities of their families, so Ann van Poperingen, a designer based in Germany (and the bride herself!) created travel games, passports to add a little fun to the wedding suite . What I love about this invite is the combination of different typefaces, and the way the letters are used. I think Ann did an amazing job.

    A great roundup, and a nice reminder that as fun and creative and swashy as wedding invitations can be, legibility is still key! Some of these bordered a bit too much on the "look how cool this is," forsaking the need to clearly convey information. 8 years ago
