Well, our big day is rapidly approaching (7 more weeks!) and the to-do list is finally getting shorter. We've moved from the stress mode to ahhhhh excitement mode and I'm relieved that we've reached that point. The biggest hurdle that was looming over my head was designing our invitations. Any designer will tell you that creating something for yourself is a torturous process, so it was tough for me to nail down a final idea and run with it. However, I had a few requirements for the invites that narrowed it down: copper foil, nautical elements, and whimsical styling—each reflecting the look and feel of our wedding day.
Envelopes: Paper Source, Foil Stamping: StationeryHQ, Custom Stamps: rubberstamps.net, Navy Silk Ribbon: May Arts
Lettering all of the pieces myself took a lot of time, but it was so satisfying to see the entire suite come together at the end. It also ensured that everything looked cohesive because it came from the same hand. I started by assembling a palette of colors and paper stocks, and sketched out a few options until the combination felt right. I fell in love with this navy silk ribbon, which balanced out the femininity of the shell peach envelopes.
