The Making of a Couture Invitation

August 4, The Apawamis Club, Rye, New York
Cheree Berry, from $1,500 for 100; 917-532-0490

1. “While the reception’s colors were orange and gold, turquoise was the accent color for our rehearsal dinner. The invitation design matched the striped tablecloths of the beach club where we had it. We printed kissing goldfish on envelopes and place cards as a sort of seaside motif.”

2. “We wanted a map because most guests were coming from out of town. We put each in an orange canvas bag that had ORANGE YOU GLAD YOU CAME? printed on the front. We filled each bag with oranges, orange gum, and goldfish crackers.”

3. “Haik’s Dutch, so we used tulips and orange (the national color) in the design. It’s also my favorite color. I’m one of six. When my sisters wore pink, I insisted on wearing orange.”
