The Making of a Couture Invitation


EVE AND ALPHONSO
September 14, The Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers, New York
Ceci New York, from $2,000 for 100; 212-989-0695

“Eve wanted the suite components to be coherent but not matchy-matchy. All of the thematic elements are visible: The rose is used throughout the collection in various colors and sizes—the bride holds one in her hand on the poster side of the invitation, its shape mimicking the tendrils in her hair. We created a rose pattern for the flap of the RSVP envelope, which is the same as the pattern on the poster, except we reversed the color. We used the calligraphy details from the RSVP card on the front of the invitation envelope, printed it on the stamps too, and included a little hint of a swirl on the back of the envelope. All in all, this took us three months (it usually takes much longer). I showed them four rounds of revisions, and I met with them three times—the rest we did through e-mail (via color PDFs).”
