I love looking back at the notes I take during invitation consultations and then comparing them to the photos of a couple’s wedding day. For Ellen and Mitch’s Des Moines, Iowa wedding, everything was exactly how she described it to me. Classic, timeless, elegant, traditional….we came up with an invitation that matched her wedding and what they wanted perfectly.
We created a standard package featuring Tiffany blue and white. The classic element I love about these invites, and tend to show off to other couples, is their monogram. It’s something simple, classic and we utilized it across the board. I especially love how we printed the monogram right on the belly band, which was added to the standard package. We also designed the ceremony programs and menus for wedding day, which coordinated perfectly.
Congrats to this great couple! Wishing you a lifetime of happiness!
One thing I like to let brides know that even if I don’t design your wedding invitations, there are still so many other pieces I can help you create.
Kelly is the perfect example of this. I met Kelly three years ago at the bachelorette party for a good friend of ours. She was the maid of honor in the wedding, I was the matron of honor. At the time we met, Kelly had no man…and no want of no man. I liked her from the beginning. Well, time went by and Kelly was lucky enough to fall in love with a guy that she went to high school with. If you don’t believe in fate, talk to someone like this.
Kelly came to me with her Save the Dates. Then her custom monogram which featured how their last names both began with “Mc”. Then labels with the monogram, place cards, mad lib cards, programs, water bottle labels….am I missing anything? Regardless, you get the point. Even though I didn’t do her invitations, the stationary pieces done afterwards were just as fun and still went with the same style she was going for on their wedding day. And their wedding style was nothing less than magnificent. Tiffany blue was how Kelly wanted to accent her wedding, but by looking at her photos, her theme was set as “beautiful”. From her dress, to the centerpieces to the small details, everything was perfect.
Thank you for allowing me to help design for your amazing wedding day, Kelli & John. A lifetime of happiness to you!
