Acorns – Sonja & Dragos

This reprinted Acorns design marks the only English/Romanian invitation we have ever done. This design was reprinted in metallic gold and hunter green for the very international wedding of Sonja and Dragos.

It was interesting laying out the text for these invitations. We had to download the Romanian keyboard to plug in the info for the Romanian invitation and choose a font that supported the dialectics, so we went with Adobe Caslon Pro, a timeless choice (Caslon is the oldest typeface still around, actually).

One thing we discovered and subsequently totally loved, was the inclusion of the phrase “Carriages at midnight” at the very end of the English invitation. Having never encountered this phrase on an invitation, we did a bit of googling and discovered that it’s a British way of informing guests when the reception will end. It has roots in the 18th century, when it was necessary for aristocrats to know when a ball or event ended so they could inform their coachmen and have their carriages brought around on time. How very elegant! Thank you Sonja and Dragos, we hope you have a wonderful day!
