handkerchief wedding invites


When AC and I got married last year, one of my favorite things about the big day was seeing our handkerchief invitations worn by guests as pocket squares. When I saw these beautiful handkerchief invites for the wedding of Youngna and Jacob, I was hooked. As much as I love paper, there’s something about using fabric to invite people that feels so special. Youngna and Jacob worked with designer Kelli Anderson to create these beautiful map invites that would help people find their way to the ceremony. Because the venue is a remote mountain-top location, the map illustrates visual landmarks to help guests on their trip, in addition to providing some decoration for the handkerchief. Kelli shared the entire creation process right here on her blog, so if you want to see how these pieces came together, check out her sketches! xo, grace

those handkerchief wedding invites are most beautiful! The stylized drawings of mountains, building and other landmarks are amazing – I love the colours – the whole idea is so nice. I looked at Kelli`s blog – very intersting to see her pictures and sketches!

Thanks everyone for the kind comments about the invite! Kelli was amazing to work with — such a precise and thoughtful design process from beginning to end.

Those are so cute! I’ve done something similar for a customer, everyone loved the extra touch the fabric gives.

Wow, thank you everyone for the incredible response. This project was a blast to work on with Jacob and Youngna. I’m eager to see if guests will match the idiosyncratic, primary-hued landmarks with the physical structures they pass on the road. :)

Sublime! Love the colors, textures, simplicity yet designed beautifully… wish I had thought of this for my wedding!
