Ampersand: A Purple Printed Pocket-Fold Wedding Invitation

This Pocket-fold wedding invitation is a printed invitation, with prominent use of typographic elements – in particular, an ampersand! These striking purple ampersand wedding invitations are beautiful and bold. This particular invite features a purple printed pocket-fold on a lavender card-stock.


The invitation opens to reveal the main invitation and information cards, to keep all the additional information tucked neatly away.

This is a simple and stunning invitation, a perfect way to invite your guests to your wedding day.


As with all Be My Guest wedding invites, colours and fonts can be altered to suit your unique wedding style. You’re also able to add on extra information cards, and order reception stationery to match.

An Ampersand Case Study

I worked with Leah and Kelvin to produce a suite of wedding stationery that fit their wedding aesthetic.  Modern, with little details that could be pulled through into the day-of stationery, and with prominent use of lavender/purple and aubergine tones. The front of their invitation featured the prominent use of an ampersand (i.e. the “&”) and a striking border of aubergine framed the card beautifully.

The details

The main invitation opens up to reveal a pocket for an information card, map and RSVP postcard. They included postage on each card, and reported an excellent return rate as a result.

Each invitation was personalised with guest’s names, saving any confusion and dodgy handwriting. I also learnt not to try carry a large box of invitations inside when in a rush – a couple of invites were urgently re-printed when I tripped and dropped some in the mud! I’m so clumsy!

The big day details

Leah and Kelvin got married on a special day for me as well: 26 September was my 5th wedding anniversary.  They didn’t have the same worries as I did with my wedding however, as they had an indoor venue for their big day.

The ceremony was held at Dunedin Railway Station.   Following the formalities, their guests were invited to pop across the road to Ironic Cafe and Bar for drinks and nibbles.

Chris Garden was their photographer for the day, providing a beautiful, clean and modern aesthetic which suited this modern couple well.

As well as wedding invitations, a set of order of service cards, menus (which also played double duty as place names) and a table seating plan was produced.

A matching image to project behind the happy couple, plus some quotes on marriage for entertaining guests at their tables was also supplied.
