There’s a new girl in town, and she’s a beauty! Valentina is the newest addition to my customisable House Collection, a contemporary design that combines elegant fonts with botanical illustrations and geometric details. Like many of the White Olive designs, Valentina was inspired by my love of the Mediterranean – in this case, by exquisite ancient buildings filled with marble, geometric tiling, and art. Evoking the classical proportions of Greek and Roman architecture, Valentina is modern and minimalist in design. The collection features hexagon shapes and a simple fern illustration that together add an updated feel to the traditional Mediterranean destination wedding.
One of Valentina’s stand-out features is the way that the design can be customised to suit your wedding style and budget, simply through your choice of papers and print finishes. For a softer, more natural look, you can opt for a faux watercolour effect, which has a beautiful, romantic air to it that I love. On the other hand, if you’re aiming for a more glamorous style, there is the option to have a foiled print with either digital or hot foiling, which adds a really luxurious finish. The foiling is available in rose gold, silver, copper, or gold. You also have the choice of three card colours: white, grey, or pale blush (which looks especially lovely with the rose gold foil!)
Another way in which Valentina can be customised is to add on the assembly of your invitation suite. There are two options available. The first is a simple vellum layer on the invitation card, attached with either a silver or gold pin. The second is a luxe vellum wrap with a sticker seal, which is printed either with ink or hot foil to match the finish of the invitation itself.
As well as the invitation itself, the Valentina collection includes an A6 Save the Date card, a 5x7” details card, and an A6 RSVP card. Save the Dates, invitations, and RSVP cards all come with luxury envelopes as standard, and you can choose to have these addressed by hand with calligraphy or sealed with envelope wax seals for that final grand touch!
