Custom Wedding Invitations

Gloria and her fiancé, Cole are getting married next Saturday and she came to me in need of wedding invitations. Her concept was cute and simple, which is what I love about how the invitations came out! She wanted simple character illustrations that would represent her and her groom. Along with the characters, I also designed a custom logo of two birds sitting on a branch that she was able to use on her programs and wedding signs.

Gloria and Cole's Invitation Suite: Invitation Card with Information Insert that is then wrapped with a belly band.

Custom Map on back of Information Insert:

Custom Logo: Two birds sitting in a tree.... K-I-S-S-I-N-G ;)

To get more use out of their cutest little characters, I also helped them create little magnets for their party favors. Gloria was able to find little yellow organza bags that will be used to hold these 3 adorable little magnets for her guests. I was not able to take a photo of it but I am telling you that they are just the cutest little things!

Gloria found her magnet and button favor vendor on Etsy, check out her Etsy store called MINEPRESS for more cute ideas!

Plantable Wedding Invitations

I recently got a wedding invitation in the mail that was 100% plantable. Yes, plantable! How cool is that? You know I had to do a little investigating and was able to find a few print studios who specialize in this new form of paper invitation. Now you can plant, grow and enjoy your invitations all over again in its new form!

This is great for eco conscious couples who want to have give back to the planet. Check out these sites for more information:

Paperless Post for the Budget Conscious Bride!

Just discovered an awesome site for online invitations or save the dates for those tech-saavy brides. Check out if you want to send something more personal than a simple email or an awkward PDF. After sending, you can then monitor as guests receive and reply to their invitations.

The great thing about this website is that is actually sends an animated version of an actual invitation. They have a lot of cute designs that you can fully customize and even add a picture.
