Gold Foil Marble Wedding Invitations by Sail and Swan
I’ve been wanting to feature this beautiful set of Marble Wedding Invitations for a while now. Not only has been marble been a huge trend in the last year or two, but foiling has really made a come back too! In case you are wondering, this lovely collection is available on the Sail and Swan website here but you can read on to find out more.
Gold and Marble Wedding Invitations
These marble wedding invitations feature a simple and classic design. Soft marble streaks appear in the background, with simple writing appearing over the top. The simple layout and design are balanced with some slightly more detailed calligraphy writing in gold foil – the hero of the piece!
What is Foiling?
Not sure what foiling is? Oh So Beautiful Paper have written a great article about it which you can check out here. We also recently posted about foiling in the Sail and Swan blog here. Basically, foiling (or foil stamping) is a process that allows you to print in metallic colours. Gold foil looks like.. well, real gold. It has the same rich, luxurious feel that real gold would have, and it makes for a stunning feature on wedding invitations.
When it comes to foiling, other finishes are available too like matt finishes, hologram and all sorts of colours and optical effects. These colours come on a roll, and are ‘stamped’ onto the invitation card using heat and pressure.
No matter what colour or finish you choose, the results are oh-so-stunning! The rich metallic colour ‘pops’ off the surface of the paper and catches the surrounding light beautifully. Foiling can transform any dull piece of card into something high end and luxurious. It just has such a beautiful look and feel to it. Marble is so stylish and versatile – and to me, gold and marble are the ultimate combination!
Other than it’s good looks of course, marble is actually a really interesting material. For all you history lovers out there, Marble Maestro explain it very well. Marble goes all the way back to ancient Egypt where it was used for columns and supporting structures because of its ability to take on great weight. Not only is it incredibly strong, but no other stone offers the kind of refinement that marble does. In some ways, marble reminds me of diamonds. To me it is a symbol of both strength and beauty.
