Design Bucket List Item
(Eventually I want to get these photographed proper, and my life goal is to get my own wedding invite company going. Until then, these photographs will work to shed just a little light on them. I'll do them proper at some time in the future. )
Since wedding invitations are a passion of mine, I can honestly this was the thing I was looking forward to designing out of my whole wedding. Once this one done, everything else was a piece of cake.
Themes + Concepts
One of the hardest parts of this invitation was having it feel like it represented my husband and myself. While my husband is a manly, punk rock, construction worker, that aesthetic doesn't work well for wedding design. The theme of our wedding was combining art and nature. I decided this would be accomplished through architectural aspects of geometry tied in with nature elements. Another part that was difficult was finding a script font that suited both of us. Neither of us is a frilly, pretty type of person. Our colors were green and purple. You can see more of our theme through these pieces I made for my bridesmaids.
