A few months ago I announced in a Typeface Tuesday blog post that I was beginning the process of designing all the printables for a very important upcoming wedding. A few weekends ago my sister married the love of her life and I was thrilled to be able to design all of her wedding stationery as my wedding gift to her and her new husband.
My sister is an old soul so it was no surprise when she channeled Gatsby to create a glamorous art deco wedding scene. Once the color scheme was chosen – blush pink and navy ::swoon:: – I went to work developing vintage-style designs for all of the wedding stationery. The Save the Date postcards were the amuse–bouche of the wedding theme, giving guests a small taste of what was to come.
Arguably the most important design of the entire package would be the invitations. These invitations not only needed to communicate necessary wedding information, it had to set the stage for the event itself.
Because the Save the Dates were heavy on the navy, we decided to soften things up with a blush background for each invitation card. Included were the actual invitation, a directions card, an RSVP card, and a custom monogram sticker to adhere to a navy ribbon. The cards were produced in three different sizes to create a stacking effect when put together.
Next on the list were the programs. The wedding was originally intended to be held outdoors, but extreme Oklahoma heat drove the ceremony inside. Regardless, the fan programs were put to good use as everyone fanned off after hours on the dance floor!
A sign was made asking the guests to leave their wishes for the new Mr. and Mrs., and set up by the guestbook.
Finally, table numbers were crafted with simple art deco designs that made the numbers easy to find for guests searching for their assigned seats.
While wedding design sets aren’t a standard service provided by War Room Marketing, invitations, programs, and other event necessities are just a handful of items we do provide. Be sure to get in touch with War Room if you want awesome stationery for your upcoming events!
