Our typical process of designing a custom wedding invitation is to talk with the bride, groom, or whoever about what makes this wedding about the couple. When did they meet? How long have they been together? Hobbies? Wedding dress?
The bride liked peacock feathers and the bride liked peacock feathers.
Hmmm. Maybe we can do something with peacock feathers.
Her bridal bouquet was made out of peacock feathers.
We like doing wide, folding invitations. The bride supplied us with a peacock feather which we scanned. Some handrolling and a finger print as that final purple center and the image was done.
We loved that she picked a rather odd calligraphy which really helped the tone of this piece.
We always bid the project for the invitation and then print thank you cards and envelopes with return addresses free-of-charge as a wedding gift from us.
We love being able to be a part of such a spectacular moment in people's lives. It is really an honor to be able to do wedding invitations.
