– OUR WEDDING INVITATIONS-
We chose to keep the colour palette to light pastel shades with a few coral and orange toned flowers thrown in to the mix – which I hope to reflect in my wedding bouquet.
You can see that we also placed the pattern I designed for the helter-skelter on the back of the cards to give them texture with a quirky, fun touch.
I had the inspiration to create a graphic map of the town for our guests, picking out the many fun things to do nearby – such as avisit the beach, Turner Gallery or even pop along to Shell Grotto. I think this part of the project took me longest to illustrate, getting it just right so it looked like an actual map and be as true to scale as possible.
We picked fancy envelopes too complete the look- well, the red or blue prints were too beautiful to resist and we feel it gives our stationery that extra special edge.
I’m so pleased with the complete package and we have had such great responses to the bespoke artwork from guests. I’ve even had a couple people say I should design invitations and a stationery range for other peoples weddings and events; I’m not sure about that.
What do you think?
