Happy Holidays from Pink Orchid Weddings!!

2009 was a busy and fun year for Pink Orchid Weddings, and Pink Orchid Designs. We have had absolutely amazing clients, coordinated weddings across Boston and New England, and even created paper products for weddings as far as France and the Netherlands. Thank you so much to everyone who has supported us this year, and we are so excited for the weddings and projects lined up for 2010!

We made this cute holiday card and sent it out to all of our past and future clients, as well as our friends in the industry that inspire us every day.

Love Bird Wedding Pocketfold Invitations

Wedding invitations come in all shapes and sizes, and sometimes they come with multiple pieces, like the main invitation, directions card, and rsvp card. A pocketfold invitation is the perfect way to hold everything together, and it's a great way to showcase an added belly band or ribbon around the invitation.

This modern invitation is one of my favorites. It has colors of silver, pink, and gray, and has a pair of love birds with the couple's initials right underneath along with a little heart. The main invitation is pearlescent white cardstock, mounted onto silver metallic cardstock, which is mounted onto a steel gray metallic pocketfold. The pocket on the right side contains the directions card, the rsvp card, and the silver metallic response envelope. The directions card contains a custom drawn map of the Laguna Niguel area of California. The rsvp card displays meal choice icons of a cow, a fish, and a carrot for beef, seafood, and vegetarian options. The belly band contains the love bird and initials design in pearlscent white cardstock, mounted onto silver metallic cardstock, with pink ribbon that wraps around the invitation. The entire pocketfold fits perfectly inside of a silver metallic envelope for mailing.

I really like how when you first open up the pocketfold, you see a very minimalist look with a lot of white space and the love bird and initials design. Then, once you take out the directions card and rsvp card, you see that there is a lot of information hidden underneath! If you are interested in this invitation design for your upcoming wedding or event, please contact me at!

Custom tags for delicious Godiva truffles!

photo from Godiva

In the holiday season, some people give socks, some give electronics, and some give out sinfully delicious Godiva chocolate truffles! Well, who are the lucky people getting these? Unfortunately, not me, but there are 50 people definitely getting these soon. I was recently asked to design customized tags for the RES Group. They are giving out six piece Godiva holiday truffle gift boxes to 50 of their international clients, and they wanted a personalized tag to tie around each box with their company name and a little message. Each tag was made of pearlescent white cardstock mounted on red cardstock, with 18 inches of 1/8" red satin ribbon attached.

Mmm.. customized tags and chocolate truffles. How can it get any better than that? If you have any design inquiries, email me at!
