Armenian Wedding Invitations for Shant & Sylva’s Armenian Wedding in San Francisco, California

Shant & Sylva chose this stunning Carlson Craft Pocket Style Wedding Invitation from Hyegraph for their July 2013 Wedding taking place in San Francisco, California. We customized the invitation tab with the couple’s initials and names in “marina” and “gold” ink. The couple chose a stunning “marina” colored jacket for their invitations and detailed the invite with matching marina and complementary “ecru” and “gold” colors. This attractive pocket invitation suite also comes in an Armenian invitation insert printed in gold ink with Armenian fonts. In addition to the English & Armenian invitation there are also three inserts including the Information Card: stating the couple’s website; the Celebration Card: asking the guests to join them at the Reception Site; and an Rrsvp Card; asking guests to reply to the invitation.

The printing style on the invitation is flat printing. Our Armenian-American couple wanted to have a traditional Armenian Wedding in San Francisco. Hence they opted to have their wedding ceremony at a local Armenian Church, their wedding reception at the Armenian Church Hall, gourmet Armenian style cuisine and of course Armenian wording to accompany the English wording on their invitations resulting in a traditional yet modern Armenian wedding. To see or order this invitation online please see our Shop Online Page.

Lori & Armen’s Armenian Wedding Invitation in Armenian & English by Hyegraph San Francisco

Lori & Armen are both San Franciscans with Armenian descent. They both grew up in the Bay Area and they both attended the local Armenian Christian School, KZV, in San Francisco. That’s where they met and in later years got together romantically. Lori & Amen are a young, sophisticated dashing couple. When they came in to Hyegraph to choose their custom wedding stationery, we were more then happy to work with them.

We worked with them to create a very sophisticated invitation incorporating the Armenian Text and an Armenian Monogram in part created by their family member. As you can see the ancient Armenian Text, the “A” for Armen and the “L” for Lori, intertwined in the center of the silver and black two layer, pocket invite from our Checkerboard stationery brand.

Pocket Wedding Invitations

There is a surprise element to this invitation on the back. From the front you wouldn’t know this is a “pocket invitation“, however, when you flip to the back, there is very distinguished pocket where the reception, response and accommodation card are hidden but neatly present for their guests. This example of a pocket wedding invitation illustrates a neat and formal look that will impress guests.

Armenian & English Wedding Text with Custom Monogram

The silver and black color scheme of Lori & Armen’s Dual-Language Wedding Invitation create a rich, formal appeal and suite the rest of their wedding theme. This Checkerboard design invitation with custom Armenian monogram is in two layers, silver layer on top of black backing; the wedding invitation envelope has a shimmer, charcoal lining, encased in a extra thick envelope with Geneva Flap. The lettering for both the Armenian and the English text is in black thermography. The font style for the English wording is “Trajan” for the names and “Burgus” for the body of the invitation.

Response Card & Reception Card

The matching Response and Reception cards are on silver shimmer card stock with black ink thermography. The Response card includes Entree Choice icons: cow for beef, fish for seafood and a carrot for vegetarian.

Jacques also addressed the couple’s wedding invitation envelopes with Hyegraph’s Digital Calligraphy and printed the wedding place cards. Congratulations to our couple and Best Wishes!

Armenian Wedding Invitations

Our Armenian couple, Arpi & Bedross chose to print their wedding invitations in both their ethnic language of Armenian and in English. They chose a beautiful aubergine and cream combination design from Carlson Craft. To truly create a unique wedding invite, telling of their heritage, Arpi & Bedross enveloped their invitation with a cream band inscribed with their initials in traditional Armenian artwork design. The intertwined A & B of their initials is a symbolic expression of the lovely couple intertwining their lives with the promise of love and ancestral tradition.

Arpi & Bedross’ Armenian and English Wedding Invitations with Armenian Artwork and Lettering:


Armenian Wedding Invitations

The couple chose to have an illustrator from Sardarabad Book Store, located in Los Angeles to create their art-work for their initials seen here on the custom tab of the pocket invitation. Arpi & Bedross chose a pocket wedding invitation to stuff all their inserts, including their accommodations card, rsvp card with return envelope and reception card. The couple resides in the Bay Area, however, their nuptials will take place in Los Angeles where their extended families will join them in the celebration.

Accommodations Card Used for Armenian Wedding Invitation:


Accommodations Card

The Accommodations Card is a great way to direct your out of town guests to the venue of your choice where they may receive special discounts and also have an opportunity to see other family and guests who are attending the wedding. In addition to the accommodations card, the reception card will make it easy for guests to have all the necessary information already printed for them on an easy to read card. Finally, the rsvp card allows guests to respond to the invitation and also write any fun comments for the bride and groom.

Armenian Wedding Invitation

Below you can see the ancient Armenian fonts that were created thousands of years ago by Saint Mesrop Mashtots, an Armenian monk, theologian and linguist. This beautiful language is cherished by the elders of Armenian communities all over the globe and still taught to the younger members of the community. In the Bay Area, Armenian is taught in Friday and Saturday schools and in San Francisco, KZV (Krouzian-Zekarian-Vasbouragan Armenian School) serves as the only Armenian School. Arpi and Bedross, by including this ancient text as part of their Wedding Invitation, have chosen to honor their heritage and pay homage to their ancestral roots in this very touching tribute to their family history.


Armenian Wedding Invitations

Arpi & Bedross’ dual-language, Armenian wedding invitation is an example of a very personal design thought up by the couple. The first way the couple achieves this very personalized wedding invite, is by choosing to include their ancestral language as part of the invitation. Second, the couple working with an artist create a custom monogram by using Armenian Art. This highly personalized card is an example of why we enjoy the invitation business where we can assist couples in the design and production of their invitations. For more examples on dual-language invitations please see our Dual-Language Invitations Category on our blog. We congratulate Arpi & Bedross and wish them a lifetime of Happiness, Health & Success/Hyegraph Invitations & Calligraphy

Dual Language Wedding Invitations

Our couple getting married in Switzerland chose to use a two-sided invitation. On one side they had their invitations printed in English and on the other side they had their invitation printed in German. This dual-language, two-sided invitation by Checkerboard is printed in Navy ink on cream stock with a tarragon layer. 

Two-sided Wedding Invite/German Side:


Wedding Invitation in German

This is the second side of the invite in German. The wedding will take place in Switzerland and the couple reside in San Francisco, CA. The couple’s names are accented on both invitations with complementary tarragon ink and cursive font style. The combination ink coloring is a nice way to create a uniform look with the tarragon layering stock used on the card. You can order this invitations ONLINE or come in, call or EMAIL US at Hyegraph Invitations & Calligraphy San Francisco.

Wedding Invitation Reception Card

Here, the reception is to follow the dinner, therefore both the invitation and reception can be printed on the main invitation without a second “reception card”. The reception portion of the invitation is illustrated with a flower motif to add an artistic element to the invitation.
