GAME OF THRONES INSPIRED WEDDING INVITATION BY PAPERMOON COLLECTIVE
I, along with many others, have become a huge Game of Thrones fan.
I recently began searching trends in the themed wedding invitation business.
Needless to say, there is a huge gap in that market.
While there are some international stationers that make elegant invitations according to a client’s chosen theme, I feel that you either find really exquisite and elegant themed invitations, or a very Renaissance inspired invitation.
My goal – to make a rustic and bold wedding invitation that is inspired by the Dothraki, tying in elements inspired by Daenerys.
My inspiration – making a non-conventional invitation using cost effective materials, design elements from the series, and making sure it would be considered fit for a union in Pentos.
It was at my supplier that I had found and fallen in love with paper that reminded me so much of Daenerys’ dragons.
I decided to create a mock up of the invitation to get an idea of what I was getting myself in to.
The invite is c6 in size, printed on Lana cotton paper and embellished with green gems.
A map of Westeros was printed on handmade blue paper and sewn together with the outer cover (Sea Green Scalloped Lokta Paper with Gold foil – Embossed) and trimmed with copper satin ribbon.
Enclosed with suede cord and inserted in a copper envelope.
Finally, after making subtle adjustments, adding a few extra touches and heading off to a location to shoot the final mock up: Photos courtesy of The Photographer Kofi
