OUR WEDDING INVITATIONS

March 22, 2018
I'm back with more details from our wedding! I loved working on our paper goods so much. It was probably my favorite detail to plan and I was so happy with how everything came out. (Here's a closer look at our Save the Dates.)

The first photo below (of the entire wedding paper suite) was taken by me on my iPhone and the rest were taken by our wedding photographer, Heather Faulkner Photography.

THE DETAILS

The entire invitation suite was wrapped in a blush pink belly band printed with our alternate wedding logo. For the main invitation I used the same watercolor artwork (purchased from Creative Market) I used for our save the dates with a blush pink gingham backer. I combined our RSVP and enclosure (one on each side) cards since we were having our guests RSVP online we didn't need them to send them in. The enclosure card had the reception details as well as what information could be found on our wedding website. The third card was probably my favorite and it not only included hand lettered lyrics from Alabama's Dixieland Delight but on the back it provided directions to the church and from there to the reception. Because our wedding was in the National Park there was absolutely no cell service and I wanted to make sure our guests knew how to get where they were going. I calligraphed the pink envelopes (that had navy gingham liners) with gold ink and considering I almost never pick up a nib and ink I was pretty proud of how they turned out.

Almost two years later and I'm still in love with how these turned out. Even had we had a larger budget there isn't much I would change beyond adding gold foil and letterpress details. I'm so happy I was able to design these for us and they're something I'll cherish through the years.

Below is a mockup I did of the invitation suite before I had it printed so I could make sure I liked how it all fit together. You can probably read the text better here but if you have any questions about how I worded anything just ask in the comments!
