My cousin just got married. I’m so excited for her!
I don’t do wedding invitations as part of a business, but I sure do love designing them for family and friends.
They wanted something simple, but with little touches of fanciness. I kept the invite themselves very traditional with a little touch of hand lettering with their names. The fact that the printers were all gawking over the “font” really boosted my ego. Made my week.
They have a rustic theme going on, so ripped edges would’ve been cool, but the thought of hand-ripping 450 invitations plus inserts made our heads spin. Instead they tied the invites together with brown and yellow baker’s twine and sent them in brown envelopes.
This takes me back to my wedding. I sure did love my wedding, even though Pinterest wasn’t a thing back then. Now that I think about it, I probably would’ve been even more stressed as a bride because I would’ve wanted to DIY everything. I’ve never really shared details of my wedding before. . . It was rad.
