Vintage Grace: A concertina pocketfold wedding invitation

This stunning concertina pocketfold wedding invitation is one your really must consider.

A beautiful pattern of old fashioned roses set the scene for this vintage style wedding invitation. The soft pastel colours featured in this invitation are elegant and tasteful and the delicate script used for the writing is beautiful and refined.

Of all flowers, methinks a rose is best.

The invitation itself unfolds to reveal a set of information cards neatly tucked away in a pocket.  What information cards you include are up to you as well as how many pockets you choose.

As with all Be My Guest wedding invitations, all colours and fonts can be modified to suit your wedding’s unique style.

Vintage Grace in Action: Nikita and Bryce’s wedding day

Nikita and Bryce tied the knot in late November, at the stunning Orchard Garden, Clyde.  They wanted a romantic feel, with a hint of coral (the colour of the bridesmaid’s dresses). Nikita used to be a workmate, so I had a fair idea in my head what would suit these guys. Luckily, Nikita loved it – and Bryce does what he’s told ;).

Coral Save the Date Calendar

We kicked off the wedding stationery with a Save the Date postcard featuring a photograph and a calendar. Nikita and Bryce live in Dunedin but were getting married in Clyde, plus had guests coming from overseas.  So a Save the Date was important to give guests a chance to book travel plans and accommodation.

A wedding invitation with a special pocket

The closed wedding invitation features a romantic pattern of roses in a soft pink colour (actually a very pale version of coral).  The top flap holds the wedding invitation together, but doesn’t go right to the bottom edge – allowing some space to highlight Nikita and Bryce’s names and wedding date.

On lifting the top flap, the wedding invite opens to reveal the main invitation. The clever thing about this wedding invitation is the wee pocket at the bottom, which held three information cards with lots of bits and pieces of information for guests.

The information cards included

  • “Getting There”: A map and information on the bus transportation provided
  • “Are You In”: A RSVP postcard which also asked guests whether they’d be on the bus, and if they were going to attend the BBQ the next day
  • “More Information”: Gave guests the details on the next day BBQ and Wishing Well preferences.

Of course, the bride was STUNNING!

We had a beautiful day for the ceremony, with a slight breeze playing havoc with Nikita’s veil, but giving guests a respite from the heat.  The ceremony was held in the middle of the famous Orchard Garden Maze, and was short and very sweet.


Wedding day stationery: seating plan on vintage ladder

We were lucky to be able to use a beautiful vintage fruit picking ladder at The Orchard Garden.  I’ve always wanted to buy one to lend out for weddings but at 2.4m high it’s a tricky piece to get into cars! So very cool that the venue had this on hand.

You can sneak a wee peek of the seating plan in the background.  Guests filed past the drinks table, could peruse the seating plan, and then got a quick snap with the photographer on their way through to watch the cake getting cut.

Each individual table was strung onto the ladder with twine, and clipped to the string with a wooden peg.

I think the fruit picking ladder was such a good call for a Central Otago wedding!

Table settings

The table numbers were a simple arrangement of tea light candles, a beautiful floral arrangement by Wendy at Orchard Garden, and a framed table number in the strong coral colour.

Nikita purchased a set of these white frames and plans to reuse them for her wedding photos – such a beautiful idea and helps the wedding budget a little too!

Congratulations Nikita and Bryce – thank you so much for having Craig & I at your big day, and thank you so much for entrusting me with your wedding stationery.
