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!
