This next invitation reveal is a little different than our usual posts. These are for my best friend, so she didn’t get the whole mood board experience nor did I ask her 100 questions about her relationship with her ~*mystery fiancé*~. I’ve known her since the 5th grade, and she’s been dating her fiancé for like 10 years, so I already knew their backstory. Anyways, because she is my friend in real life she got a very different experience than our normal clients do.
Shelby was able to come in and look at/feel all of our paper options. We were able to test print things and tweak them to her exact liking. And more than that – she was here to help assemble each and every piece. (Which ended up taking over 8 hours)
Her wedding has a very vintage/old world theme. She is putting old books and vases down the center of the tables. She wants everything done in the type writer font we included here. She’s using dried flowers instead of bloomin’ ones. (I am really excited to see how it all ends up – hopefully I don’t black out from nerves before my maid of honor speech)
Anyways, for her save the dates we went with the classic photo and STD details. We added vellum wraps with a quote from Plato’s Symposium. She sealed everything together with an olive wax seal with a little branch on it. The insert and envelopes were on Kraft paper to keep the old, antique look throughout. The insert card included a link to their wedding website and icons representing the information you can find on their website. (RSVPing, their registry, accommodations and their engagement photos!)
Her ideas for her actual invitations should turn out amazing, and unlike any invitations I’ve ever done. I can’t wait to share the final product with you guys and hear what you think about them.
I am a firm believer in your Save the Dates being as nice as your invitations. They are truly the first impression of your big day that your guests will receive. If you are looking to discuss design ideas with us for your dream wedding suite, you can reach out to us here!
