Check it out. A new wedding invitation design called "We Joyfully Do" that puts a modern twist on traditional wedding vows. It is friendly and fun, much like my good friend who it was originally designed for. Thank you, Lindsey, for allowing me to share it with everyone!Thanks for reading, all!
Well, you've seen the Vintage Postcard Save The Date I designed for my brother and his fiancé. And the runner-up Vintage Train Ticket. I guess it's about time I show you the invitation, huh?This invitation pays homage to our parents by using vintage wedding photos in place of their names. This creates a cool mix of traditional and non-traditional invitation elements, which is perfect for couples who want to be both conventional and unique.Check it out:Okay. How adorable are those throwback photos? They seriously make my heart melt.Anyway, this suite is now for sale at my Etsy shop. Stop on by!
Peak wedding season is here! Exciting, right? And potentially overwhelming for some of you brides out there.Well, to help you out, Minted has done something pretty awesome. They've created a new way to shop for invitations. By inspiration.So, if you have a wedding coming up and you have no idea where to start, I suggest snuggling up on your couch this weekend and taking a look through all the gorgeous inspiration boards on Minted. Not only will you likely find an invitation you love, but you're certain to find plenty of overall style ideas.For example, I created the inspiration board below for a wedding invitation I designed called Journey Together. It conveys the playful, vintage-inspired wedding these invitations were meant for, as well as the fun, unique, tandem-bike-riding couple I had in mind while designing them. Enjoy!
This week, I received a wedding invitation in the mail that looked quite familiar.It was the wedding invitation suite that I’ve been working on for months with my soon-to-be-cousin-in-law, Maria.Maria and I began discussing the project back in January. She requested “a classic, traditional look...”I panicked.Traditional isn’t really my thing.But then she added, “...with some fun, personal touches”.Thank goodness.To me, the most important thing in wedding invitation design is to capture the personality of the couple. I never want to design something that looks like it was purchased at the card store down the street. Then what would be the point of hiring me? Am I right?The design that Joe and Maria chose focuses on their wedding venue, Canisius College in Buffalo, New York. Canisius College is also where they met many years ago, and will always be a special place to them.Thank you to Michael Smith (www.mssgraphics.com) for granting me the rights to his ink drawing, "Christ The King Chapel at Canisius College"Tell me, what do you think is most important when it comes to wedding invitation design?
