So many of my clients find me online and I never get to meet them in real life. There’s something extra special about creating custom wedding invitations for someone I actually know, and maybe a little extra pressure too! However, I’m up for the challenge of making something unique for the bride who can’t quite find exactly what she’s looking for.
Dana is someone I’ve known for as long as I can remember and she grew up on the same street as I did. Although we went our separate ways after high school, we always somewhat kept in touch thanks to Facebook. I was super excited when she reached out and asked me to design custom wedding invitations! Dana had a strong Pinterest board and I could see her wedding theme immediately – first and foremost, lots of greenery, which I loved! She also pinned some wedding décor with rustic elements and a lot of neutral colors, including the “kraft” look. Most of Dana’s wedding pins were florals and dresses – I like to see what a bride is pinning a lot of, this is what is most important to her!
Taking elements from her Pinterest inspiration, we nailed down an initial concept – white paper with greenery elements. Dana chose to use the kraft envelopes to bring in the rustic and natural elements. We reviewed several different font options, with a fun script being the final result.
When creating custom wedding invitaitons, I love to be inspired by a bride’s Pinterest board! Without looking at other invitation designs, it’s great to get a feel for the overall theme by seeing images of florals, décor, and other non-stationery details. I’m super happy with the way Dana’s wedding invitations turned out and think this will be a very popular design that other couple’s can use for their weddings.
