The NEW Semi-Custom Wedding Invitations Collection!
It's with much excitement that I announce the launch of my new wedding invitations collection. I've been working hard to create one-of-a-kind wedding invitations that speak to the everyday bride. I've had the privilege of working with so many brides over the years. Some lessons learned:
- Brides love a unique but not overly excessive design
- Brides love to personalize their stationery with their wedding colors
- Brides love a heavy-weight card stock and full suites
- Brides love budget friendly pricing
- Brides love a personal experience
With all that taken into consideration my new collection has an invitation for every bride plus they are SUPER AFFORDABLE! Each invitation is a semi-custom creation, meaning that the font cannot be changed but the bride can customize the colors and wording. All they need to do is choose the design and personalize. It's that simple. Take a peak:
Our Inspiration Behind the Collection
Wedding invitation design is a lot of fun. Every designer has their own style. I really enjoy creating feminine, classic designs. Hence wedding invitation design is right up my ally. I approached this collection like I do my branding projects ... I start with collecting inspiration. Let's take a look behind the scenes at my "love letter" invitation.
My Wedding Invitations Design Process
Step 1: Decide the Style
Wedding styles (aka themes) fall under categories: classic, rustic, shabby chic or vintage just to name a few. For the love letter invitation I knew I wanted it to have a vintage/antique style.
Step 2: Collect Inspiration
Pinterest is my go to source for inspiration. I simply create a board, in this case I created the "Vintage Wedding Inspiration" board and I started pinning images that were associated with a vintage wedding. Some of the keywords I chose were antique, vintage wedding, love letters and 1920's.
Step 3: Create an Inspiration Board
After I am satisfied with my pins I create an inspiration board of my favorite eight pins. Take a look at the inspiration board for the love letter invitation:
Step 4: Design the Invitation
Now I'm inspired and ready to design the invitation. For the love letter invitation I wanted to keep it simple with a nice script font to symbolize the love letter idea. I also keep it classic and wedding appropriate by incorporating the "Love is patient, love is kind" verse (which is written on the envelope liner) that so many brides choose to read during their wedding ceremonies. I wanted the colors to emphases the vintage feel so I chose the harvest color for the envelopes, quartz paper for the invitations and burgundy for the invitation wrapper to add a pop of color. Of course the colors can be changed depending on the brides color choices. So here it it, the final design for the love letter invitation:
A Designers Work is Never Done
There you have it. My wedding invitation process from beginning to end. I'll be adding more wedding invitations to the collection. I'd love to hear what you think about my collection and any thoughts on additional styles you'd like to see added. In the works is a lace wedding invitation!
