We offer a full range of announcement, invitation and graphic design services to all of our clients! I am thrilled to show off this fun wedding suite I put together for just one of our many fantastic soon-to-be newlywed couples! I was so excited after receiving her wedding invitation in the mail that I wanted to put together a little blog post to show you all the fun!
I had the sincere pleasure of designing and printing a whole suite of fun paper goods for BreAnna and Brenden’s wedding! After their engagement session which they let me style, they asked for a fun Save the Date to convey some minimal details about the day and start getting people excited! We decided to use a few of the images from their engagement shoot and settled on a 5×7 size. Other than that, Bre left the details up to me!
Her Save the Date was mailed in a brown kraft envelope with a custom designed wrap around return address and mailing label.
The Save the Dates were printed on both sides of a thick canvas stock and die cut into a darling shape!
After her Save the Dates were mailed, Bre’s Maid of Honor contacted me about making a Bridal Shower Invitation that would use images from the Bride’s engagement session and complement the Save the Date. I was more than happy to oblige. This 5×7 card was also printed on the same canvas stock as the Save the Date, but with rounded corners. The Maid of Honor even embellished it with some little rhinestones – what a fun little addition to really make these sparkle!
Once we had the Save the Dates and the Bridal Shower invites finished, the Maid of Honor asked me about making Bachelorette Party Invitations! I had so much fun making these tri-fold cards with a special die-cut flap.
Now we had three really darling pieces in the collection – and it was time to begin working on the most important piece of all – the actual wedding invitation! I designed, printed and ordered all the pieces – and Lauren from Laurenish Designs did the calligraphy. The Bride and some friends assembled all the pieces together beautifully!
It was so exciting to receive this aqua envelope in the mail with the gorgeous calligraphy. The bride even picked out beautiful postage to go along with it. (A huge pet peeve of mine is poor postage choices!).
After very delicately opening the envelope – I couldn’t bear to tear it! – I was able to see the first sneak peek at the beauty that awaited inside!
The satin ribbon and lace wrapped package slid easily out of the envelope and felt so significant held in my hands. The embellishments may seem like such a little thing, but they add so much charm and importance to the paper aspects of an invitation.
Once I had the darling little kraft paper folder in my hands, I slid the RSVP card and envelope out of it and filled it out right away! I get really excited about these things if you can’t tell.
Then I brought out the main invitation panel. Printed on a stock to match the other pieces in the whole collection and with rounded edges, this piece was simple, elegant and held all the details necessary. A little writing on the back helped fill in some of the information so that we didn’t clutter up the front of the invitation.
Bre, thank you so much for trusting me enough to put this together for you! It was such a joy to work on this project and I love how it all turned out! Can’t wait for your wedding!
