Lisa & Martin set the scene for their Wedding Day with Bespoke Designed Wedding Invitations
Our first meeting was at a Wedding Fayre in Harveys Point in Donegal one Thursday evening in February 2017
They came along to the fayre and stopped by my stand and fell in love with one of my designs that I had created especially for the evening. After taking down the details I got in touch with Lisa the following few days with prices and more photo’s of the invitation so she could show Martin and get his thoughts.
The design included photography which was what caught Lisa’s eye as they wanted to use photography anyway. It also had a rustic feel to the wedding invitation and was warm and friendly, less formal. I think this suited the couple very well! Lisa mentioned she wanted to use her wedding colours in the invitation and wondered what I could do so I decided to change the look of the original invite and design this bespoke invitation using the colours of the wedding and it totally changed the style and feel but we still kept the kraft sting finish to tie the invite closed.
I totally loved their images and if you would like the details of their wedding photographer check them out here…www.seangallagherphotography.com
Printing the Wedding Invitation sample
I was keen on Lisa & Martin to see a printed sample of the wedding invite because I wanted them to choose their card stock and also look at envelopes choices. They had book with their wedding photographer a date for a pre-wedding shoot which was going to be close to the time of their wedding day so I wouldn’t be able to get their chosen until then. So I printed off samples in different card stocks and sent it off with the envelope choices and Lisa came back to me over the moon with them and they had decided to go for the beautiful gold pearlescent card stock, teaming it up with the kraft brown envelope…..a perfect match!
Colour or Black & White?
While the time flew in I could hardly believe their wedding date was fast approaching and I was keen on getting their photographs in so I could get another printed sample off to them before printing the order. At last we got the images, they were stunning! Lisa had mention she would like to see them both in colour and black & white so I tired both, printed them off and posted them to her. My advice was to go with the colour photo’s as I felt the black & white was too harsh with her wedding colours and the coloured photos I felt suited the theme so much better as they are warmer, even though there was very little colour in them. Lisa & Martin agreed with me and we were good to print!
They also decided to get their guest names printed onto the wedding invitations and have the envelopes addressed rather than writing their own which was lovely as I’m not sure how they would have looked being hand-written so I’m over the moon they decided to go with the printed option.
Bridal Card Keepsakes…
I also designed Bridal Cards for the wedding day that kept the style and theme going from the wedding invitation. Sometimes you don’t want a full ceremony booklet and these little cards are beautiful as a keepsake from the day.
