Retro Rockabilly Wedding Invites and Save the DatesWords by Jennifer Stein Words by Carolyn Gerin (Antibride.com)
We’re always on the lookout for things that are new, different and otherwise off the beaten path. Well, we’ve honed in on another interesting wedding invitation that takes a fresh look at counterculture weddings. We’re pleased to present the Retro Rockabilly Tattoo wedding invitation suite by Bon Moment.
If you’re a out-of-the-box couple and you’re looking for something quintessentially rockabilly, we think you’d give this set a second, if not longing, look. Even if you’re just a fan of “the good old days” where your grandparents walked uphill, both ways, in the snow and still like to tell tales of sock hops, war time and silk pantyhose dangling in the shower, you’ll probably like these as well. What’s more, it’s fresh out of the designer’s fingers (released just in time for wedding season).
Inspired by retro tattoo artists, the invitation is available in three colors, sunshine, ruby, or white (their color names), with white envelopes. Also available is a save the date postcard, rsvp postcard, menu card, and wedding program. Each of these pieces has their own color options allowing a couple to mix-and-match colors to create exactly the look and feel that they are trying to create. Thank you cards are still in the works but we’ve been told they sport a kicky horseshoe (for good luck, of course). Fun!
We asked the artists a few questions about how they go about creating their invitation concepts and they had an interesting take on it:
“We like to tell a story with our invitations. That’s why we offer a total concept rather than the standard repetitive elements you’ll find on most wedding invitations. We believe in giving the couple the ability to really craft their invitation set with color and wording to really express who they are. We try to create things that will ‘pop’ when they arrive in a guests’ mailbox.”
This set is printed on bright white card stock and comes in quantities of 25. This set is also available in Print-at-Home PDF template, catering to the DIY and eco-brides.
