For those of you who don’t know, I’m getting married next year! And this is fabulous for many reasons, obviously! But it’s also been a great learning experience for me. I know a lot about weddings from the prospective of a photographer, however, I’m also realizing just how much my couples are planning outside of their details with me. And for my fellow OCD planners, I don’t know how you do it without a lot of help from planners, wedding blogs, and previously married friends. I’m fortunate to know the right places to look for advice, so I thought I would share our invitations.
I don’t recommend taking on a project like this for hundreds of guests. However, if you’re having a small, intimate wedding, I say think outside of the 2-D box, and create something really unique for your guests.
Taking a save the date idea from Martha Stewart, and working it into our invitation, really got me thinking sculpturally. I then found doll suitcases, map stickers from Paper Source, and pearl business cards, for the bulk of the written information.
Now, onto the dress!
