Custom Invitations - Passport Travel Theme Invitation

When Kim and Anand contacted me and told me their vision of their travel theme wedding, I knew that this would be a fun wedding to work on....and I was right!! Kim is so creative and we were always on the same page when it came to the design of her wedding ensemble. We started with the oversized passport invitation complete with boarding pass RSVP card that you tear off and send off as a post card. The funny thing was that most of the guests didn't want to send it back...they wanted to keep it with their invite...that was a nice compliment :) Next we designed the programs to look like a road map and also the table names that were named after countries that Anand and Kim would like to visit one day, we even had a landmark picture of the place on the back of the table name. Finally the favors that Kim found were these cute tin suitcases and I designed labels that doubled up as the seating cards for the reception. Check out the whole wedding design below.

Custom Invitations - Pocketfold Invitation

Congratulations to Christina and Arbi, who just got married on September 5th! Christina wanted something simple and elegant for her custom wedding invitations and accessories, and this is what we came up with. The colors were cream and brown with a touch of fresh green. She loved the pocketfold invitations which keeps the RSVP and direction card nicely tucked away on a side pocket. We used a shimmery brown cardstock for the pocketfold and printed everything on a shimmery off white cardstock, the paper gave it a beautiful and elegant feel. Christina also ordered custom address labels which we addressed for her, and that was the cherry on top to the perfect invitation package that was mailed out. For the wedding accessories, we designed custom favor tags, in which we used her engagement photo, to give it a personal touch. We also designed matching table names/numbers, and placecards, which completed the designed look for the wedding. For more samples of custom invites check out Click on picture to enlarge.
