I have to do it! I’m sorry! I have to post some wedding pics because my wonderful photographer and florist did an amazing job on everything! …and hey! It qualifies as “pretty” so cut me a break! ;-) I will post various things every once in awhile from the big day, I don’t want to BORE any of you pretty readers with photo-album after photo-album!
First thing’s first: INVITATIONS!
I made my own invitations and am very proud of them! I found an inspiration image and I tried very hard to get the same feel for my own without copying the idea completely.
Credit: I found this image on Style Me Pretty and I contacted the invitation designer to inquire about her services. I was disappointed that she didn’t call me back, but I ended up doing a fabulous job without her!
So I started with the color scheme which I had already known was going to be plum/eggplant and gold based on my bridesmaid’s dresses. I wanted a black tie affair but I didn’t want the traditional ivory and gold combination so I thought this was a nice compromise. It remains elegant and beautiful without being overly traditional and not-me!
So I designed my own invitation layouts on Photoshop:
And then ordered all of the supplies!
Special Thanks to Kellen at The Paper Orchid who was the sweetest person to work with! She was a huge help and was sweet as could be! THAT, wedding vendors, makes a HUGE impact on us girls! Keep that in mind for next time, “wedding stationary lady that didn’t call me back!”
Now as a final note, I would LOVE to make some invitations for you brides out there! If there is any interest from you girls that would love a handmade quality to your invites without doing them yourself, I would LOVE to help!
