For my sister's upcoming wedding, we took a cue from the setting at The Parker Palm Springs to create invitations for the event. The hotel's retro-luxe vibe (courtesy of Jonathan Adler) combines wild colors with desert-y whites and tans, layered with multiple patterns and textures.
The inspiration piece was the multi-hued chevron marbled paper, which we used to back the invitation cards (printed in a makeup-y peach tone on pearlescent opal paper).
The reply cards were the inverse of the invitation: knockout type against the makeup-y peach, backed with gold-and-natural marbled paper. The reply envelope and mailing envelope were the same heavy, richly textured "Luxe" paper in both blush and fino cream. The mailing envelopes were hand-lined with gold mums paper. The mini travel card was printed in gray on simple translucent paper.
We hope the invitation gives a visual and tactile sense of the wedding's unique setting. I have always wanted to visit Palm Springs and stay at The Parker, which makes the anticipation of Kristen and Jon Paul's celebration even sweeter...
