Wine-themed Bridal Shower Invites

How convenient is it to have an invitation designer in the wedding party? I think pretty convenient! Tracy is one of my best friends and here is one set of her shower invites. Yes, she is having three showers. I'll be doing invites for 2 out of the three showers...and then all her wedding invites, which I'm sooo excited about.

It's a wine themed shower, so I used a nice vine/grape design printed on cream stock, then mounted it on wine and metallic gold cardstocks.

Fun & Sassy Bridal Shower Invites

Fun & Sassy was the mission for these invites. They found perfect polka-dotted plates & napkins to go along with my theme. Pink & brown are the wedding colors, so we decided to jump on that and coordinate. Love the fun pink envelopes to add a punch of color. Matching thank you cards to come. They are always a nice add-on and the bride will sure need them!

Tri-continental wedding extravaganza

This set of save-the-dates was a lot of fun to work on. Once you read the story, you'll quickly realize they are having a wedding and two parties after the fact - on three separate continents!

I did most of the illustrations myself, including Big Ben, the champagne bottle and the Sydney Opera House. Coordinating envelopes with the bride & groom graphic adds a nice finishing touch.
