When Elizabeth approached me to design engagement party invitations for her and Ramon, I was super excited. They are such a delightful couple with amazing ideas….dream clients. A few days passed and Elizabeth called to let me know that her brother had decided to propose to his girlfriend so now they wanted to have a joint engagement party. FUN! Here is the catch: the proposal was a surprise and they wanted the party to be a surprise for her as well.
After much brainstorming, I decided the only way to pull this off was to tell a story through the invitation, causing people to want to read every word and really get a grasp of the “top secret” situation. We paired the invitation with Crane’s pearl white envelopes lined in black and used a headline news style format to tell the love story of each couple, giving guests an occasion to really look forward to!
