#CeciBride Ivette came to Ceci New York looking for classic, elegant invitations for her wedding on Dorado Beach in Puerto Rico. Not looking to upstage the natural beauty of the tropical setting, Ivette wanted to keep her invitation design in classic white and gold tones, along with including a custom crest design at the top!
Ceci New York recommended our Ariana Collection invitation design for a classic look and feel, featuring gold foil stamping and soft gray letterpress on our luxe 4ply ivory white paper. To add an extra pop of color and interest, we suggested adding a gold metallic, bevel and ink tinted edge to the invitation, which finished the invitations off in a really beautiful way! Ivette then chose to add a Ceci Couture design enhancement to customize her suite further by adding a laser cut bellyband with damask graphic elements on our champagne shimmer paper.
To carry the look through to the wedding itself, Ivette customized our Damask Placemat in the same champagne shimmer paper as her invitation bellyband at each of her tables. Her menu design also coordinated perfectly with her wedding invitations, featuring the same custom crest at the top in gold foil stamping and gold hand calligraphy of each guest name – which is a great way to save on printing additional place cards for your table and still achieve an elegant look! The end result was a truly sophisticated and classic with a modern twist.
"Working with Ceci New York was one of the most important and best decisions I made soon after getting engaged. From beginning to end, Ceci New York provided a first-class experience that exceeded all my expectations. My initial visit to their office was enlightening as it showcased the breadth of their capabilities. It confirmed what I suspected; every invitation they create has its own style bringing the personality of the bride and the event to life. Having the creative team listen to my vision and then create an elegant invitation that provided a spectacular first impression to our event was only the beginning. From there, they created a complete wedding experience that included the wedding day stationary and placemats, and our Thank You notes. Guests were so impressed by the experience and Ceci New York’s work that I received numerous calls about how stunning and exquisite the invitations were and learned that guests took the personalized menus home to frame along with the invitation to remember the evening. After the wedding, Ceci New York helped me select the right picture for our Thank You notes to bring back the experience of that magical evening. I’ll forever be grateful to the team who flawlessly executed my vision and delivered a chic destination wedding experience."
