Pretty wedding invites

Categories   Wedding Inspiration

LOVE these invites we spotted on Sideshow Press’s blog. Here is a description from Jay, the groom and designer:

As much as it might have been fun to use a bunch of blackletter typefaces and neon inks, I figured it’d be best to reign it in and create something that felt like a merger of both our personalities. The end result takes that idea literally by sandwiching simple elements & textures which represent the two of us as individuals to create a finished package that’s distinctly “us.” That’s my design mumbo-jumbo explanation, anyway. Really, I just wanted to put her in a cameo and myself in a plaid shirt, and somehow print it on actual wood. The invitation was letterpressed cherry wood veneer which we then duplexed to crane lettra pearl white cover stock.

Aren’t they beautiful and awesome and unique? Even though we don’t know them, it’s pretty obvious that groom-y designed these with his and his lovely bride-to-be’s tastes in mind.

Even though the icons are simplistic, you can still tell just how beautiful the bride is and how ridiculously, unbelievably handsome the groom must be. :)

I know a couple who have a friend who just happens to be a great graphic designer, so they had her make up the wedding invites. Not only were they very very funky and original, but they also had that personal touch that showed the invites were created by a friend who knew their personalities really well. It's a good way to go if you're lucky enough to have a designer amongst your close friends! Thanks, Chris
