Destination Wedding Invitation and Tourist Guide in One! (Video)

With the theme of a destination wedding in mind, this 10×15˝ tabloid format wedding invitation is both modern and fun, and offers a bit of surprise with the turn of every page. Designed by the Joe and Kelley Galbreath, the invitation was produced by Linco in Long Island City, NY, and printed on Newsprint paper in solitary black ink. A yellow sticker was also hand-applied on the front cover, revealing a bit about the couples history.

The love for design and typography was clearly evident here with lots of bold lettering and decorative patterns using the couples name. The designers also decided to include a tourist guide with maps, local history, a cut-out bib, and tourist destinations of the host city, Chattanooga,TN.
