Our wedding invites

Posted on

Sade and I are big fans of the fashion, style and romance of classic 1950s Hollywood Glamour. It’s provided much of the inspiration and undertone behind our wedding (without it becoming a themed-wedding). We wanted our invites to therefore give our guests an immediate feel for the Golden Age, following in the footsteps of the likes of Hepburn, Monroe, Sinatra and Gable!

Being a Design & Art Director, it made sense to save ourselves a packet on wedding stationery costs and design/print the whole suite myself! It also allowed us to have a completely unique design, using fonts and a classic black and white theme to reflect the era. It can then be used throughout every element of the wedding stationery, from invites to place names and right through to thank-you cards after the big day.

So here’s the end results! And whilst they may have taken longer (ahem…a lot longer – I’m a compulsory faffer!) than expected, we’re really pleased with how they look and we hope you like them too.

Yep, after almost 8 years together, one house, two beautiful daughters and a cat later…On August 6th 2011, we’ll finally complete the set by tying the knot!

Our blog will follow all the build-up to the big day, giving you a chance to keep up to date with the plans, arrangements, tears and tantrums. We’d love to hear from you as well, so feel free to leave a comment or two, or post an embarrassing pic of the groom and bride to be!

Invites officially sent!
