My brand new sister in law Brittany is one of the most joyful people you will ever meet. She is beautiful, bright and always bubbling with enthusiasm for something. She’s an artist with a bold and whimsical sense of style. Her creativity, distinctive taste and fun-loving spirit made for an absolutely dreamy wedding this past June. I’m so happy I was able to lend a hand with the invitations.
The ever so talented Brittany came up with the concept herself. The watercolor background was her (genius) idea. The hand drawn illustration was created by the bride
Brittany wanted to incorporate polka dots – a prominent motif at the wedding – into the invitation design. I came up with the idea of including a sheet of translucent vellum with hot pink polka dots to separate and protect the invitation from the photo. We also included polka dots on the custom mailing label.
I wish so much you could reach out and touch this paper – luxurious, uncoated, heavy weight card stock. The texture was perfect for the watercolor effect.
The invitation suite included a 5 x 7 invitation, vellum sheet, photo, two insert cards and a wraparound mailing label. To me these invitations perfectly represent this fun, happy couple and the great party that was their wedding day.
Plus – as a bridesmaid I got to wear a hot pink dress – and all of my dreams as a child in the 90’s came true.
