Wedding Invitation by Krystal Menez


After being shown all their favorite invites they had come across at that point, I took Mia and Len’s wedding invites to the next level. These people are far from being the type that deserve a templated wedding invitation. With this project, I intended on making it a truly unique experience for the recipient while still reflecting the couple’s likes.

I designed the booklets to have 8 pages, front and back covers with a texture I had scanned in from my actual passport. On the front you’ll see a clever symbol that I created. United States passports have this symbol on the front that I’ve never understood.201211-b-trip-doctor-lost-passport

I decided to recreate it with a heart.

The first pages that the “passport” booklet opens up to is the formal invite and a page that looks similar to the photo portion of a passport.

In traditional Filipino weddings, there are sponsors and large bridal parties. The next few pages have the sponsors, bridal party information, accommodations, and special thank yous. Throughout these pages I placed pictures of the couple to personalize it further. The background images on these pages are pictures of Tagaytay, Philippines, which is where the wedding will take place.

The 4×7 boarding pass actually serves as the RSVP postcard. The recipient tears off the smaller portion which serves as a Save-the-Date, and the larger portion is meant to be snail-mailed back. There is an option for the recipient to hop online to RSVP.

For the envelopes, I had a custom stamp made and used it on the flaps. I wrote out 250 envelopes in modern calligraphy to add an even more personalized touch.
