Planning a country or beach wedding? Twig and Figâ€™s Driftwood Tides set lends a glam shade to the eco-friendly. Made entirely from reclaimed wood, the invitation, consists of seven planks (reminding of driftwood or an old romantic boardwalk) that measure 5"x7" and approximately 1â€ thick and includes a single 4â€x6â€ plank as the save-the-date card. Two vertical planks neatly hold the seven others together.
Twig and Figâ€™s co-owner and designer, Suzie McKig took inspiration from photographs of a Hawaiian vacation home built of reclaimed wood and painted in the color palette of the sea ranging from deep azure to bright turquoise. The resulting invitations have a beautiful natural patina with screen printed water-soluble ink and laser-etched text. Any font or design can be created with their in-house laser cutter.
A complete set ranges from $57-63, which includes an invite, save-the-date and a lined rag envelope. The turquoise liner adds a sea-splash of color against the wood grain, but they can substitute the envelope or liner for any in their line. Naturally, the invites require additional postage.
