We love the romantic history of deckled edge paper. Today these feathery edges are created manually to soften the sharp edges of smooth cut paper. Back when all paper was handmade, one sheet at a time, deckled edges were considered an imperfection. Gradually, they became associated with luxury as people began to gain an appreciation for their handcrafted look.
Our Kraft Deckle Invitation has a natural feel, its golden deckled edge creating a frame which complements the rustic look of the paper. It’s a pleasingly simple design that echoes the gold of the wedding bands.
The invitation sets the tone for a reception that’s elegant but not overly formal. For our inspiration board we chose a palette of light neutrals with warm undertones, adding metallic accents and warm colors. When choosing an accent color to complement neutrals, make sure the undertones match. The warm undertone of the dusty pink works nicely here.
Sleek white chair covers are paired with extravagant organza bows. Gold rimmed tableware is softened by linen napkins and fresh flowers. The naked edges of the wedding cake calls attention to the sleek buttercream covering its sides and mimics the look of deckled edges.
