Meg & Fran's Rehearsal Dinner & Breakfast Invites

Meg and Fran wanted rehearsal dinner and day after breakfast invitations that matched the same theme as their wedding invitations. I used the same fonts, cardstock and graphics but added some extra blue for punch. We did two different RSVP cards since some guests were invited to both events and some just to one.

Meg & Fran's Beer Bottles

Meg and Fran brewed their own beer for their guests and they asked me to do a custom designed label. We played into the Texan in Meg and Bostonian in Fran to create this unique beer label.

Bird & Flower Wedding Invitations

I first started to work with Meg & Fran and their save-the-dates,which were fun and casual. For their invites, they wanted something much more formal but still carrying the same color scheme. Meg just loved little birds on invitations, so we knew that was a critical element. They also liked swirly floral elements and fancy fonts. I did a lot of searching for the right font and graphics and it was a hit.

Vintage Reception Extras

These are the reception extras that matched Terri & Glen's set. I did table numbers, placecards and personal menus for each guest.

Vintage Invitations

Terri and Glen opted for a vintage feel for their graphics and fonts. We ended up with this flourish and an antique looking font. We tied the blue metallic cardstock in by adding a layer on the invitation and using it for inserts. I love the layering of the invitation which gives it the feel of a framed picture. I also did menus, table numbers and placecards with coordinating look and feel. Will post those separately.

Rehearsal Dinner Invitations - Lobster themed

I met with Justin's family to create the rehearsal dinner invitations for Justin & Danielle. We decided to go more casual than their wedding invitations but still wanted to carry the graphics in. Since the dinner was held at a casual lobster restuarant on Cape Cod, we pulled in a lobster graphic and used it with the same swirly graphic from their invites. We kept the color schemes simple with just black, white and red. I even added a lobster on the envelopes :)

Falling Leaves - take 2

This was my second set of invitations for falling leaves(here's the first set). We used totally different graphics and colors in this set. Paired a rich wine color with gold and cream cardstock. I also did guest addressing on the envelopes and adding some falling leaves there as well.

Baby Announcements - Mia

I custom designed this set of baby announcements for little Mia. I used some fancy fonts, a monogram and tied in some more modern, bold pinks and purples to jazz it up. Printed on photo paper for superb quality image then mounted on a purple metallic cardstock.

Baby Announcement Magnets

This is my first set of baby announcement magnets. I have a whole line of magnets to offer, both baby and save-the-dates...just inquire. Will have for sale when my new website is created (someday!)

Pink and White Flowered Pocketfold

Lindsay and Brian had a destination wedding in Aruba and wanted fun and pink! They loved this patterned pocketfold I had and I designed the inside to match the graphics. We did a custom wrap on each invite over ribbon which listed the guest's names instead of an inner envelope. We also did a "plan" card to tell everyone the events of the weekend.

Panel with a pocket!

Kate was my first bride to go for the Koala pouch, the panel with a pocket! We paired an eggplant pouch with gold and cream metallic cardstocks to create a beautiful fall set. I created a custom monogram which was used on the envelopes and will be incorporated into the reception seating chart.

Embossed Swirl Pocketfold Set

Justin and Danielle were my first couple to go for these super elegant embossed pocketfolds. They choose the swirl design in a black metallic square pocketfold. The design integrates perfectly with the embossed pocketfold for a unified look and I used an elegant flourished font to accent all the swirls.

Purple, Pink & Brown Pocketfolds

I just posted the save-the-dates for Julie and Don and here is their coordinating wedding invitation set. I customized the front of the pocketfold with guest names to serve as the inner envelope. I also used all the same cardstocks and colors as the save-the-dates for consistency. I'm working on menus now for the reception that will also coordinate.

Julie & Don's Save the Dates - Tying the Knot

Julie and Don chose this beautiful set of colors for a fall wedding - deep chocolate brown, warm metallic punch pink and a light metallic purple. We used this simple design element which will later be brought into their invitations and menus. I tied a ribbon around the save-the-date since they are "tying the knot!" Lastly, we did dark brown envelopes with a metallic envelope wrap.

Seating Charts

Seating Charts are becoming the new trend for seating arrangements at weddings. Reduce the clutter on the tables by getting rid of placecards and present one beautiful sign. Now don't envision an ugly diagram with tables drawn out...these are designed to match your wedding (colors, fonts, graphics). I make them 36" x 24" which fits into a standard frame, which I suggest buying at AC Moore or Michael's when there is sale or a coupon. Here are a few examples of seating charts I've recently done.

Floral Bridal Shower Invitations

I created these bridal shower invitations for my sister-in-law Laura. I used recycled yellow cardstock that matched her wedding invitations and chose this simple flower graphic, which suits her personality perfectly and added the graphic on the envelopes too. I also designed matching thank you notes with the envelopes already addressed to save the bride lots of time!
