When preparing for your much-awaited wedding, one of the important elements is your wedding invitation. Many are going digital already but most couples (including us) still want the traditional printed wedding invitations to be sent out to guests.
For our intimate DIY Rustic Wedding, we both had a digital event invite conveniently done via Facebook and a traditional printed invitation. It all started with the wedding concept. Think garden, flowers, rustic, DIY projects, and intimate. I wanted the concept to appear and be felt on the invitations itself. We wanted to have a hand-lettered and hand-painted invitation. So I asked help from a very talented colleague, Myra Lim, who is passionate in doing these things.
We started with the Save The Date design which of course had the date of our wedding and our hashtag. I posted this on our wedding's Facebook event invite:
Apart from giving my dear artist friend the content, I also provided her my invitation pegs, which of course I got from a soon-to-be-bride's reliable source of wedding inspiration, Pinterest. To give you an idea, here were samples of my invitation inspiration:
|The Main Invite, the What, When, and Where of our wedding|
|We were a bit strict about the attire color and encouraged our 70 guests to RSVP their attendance.|
|On the third page, you'll see the Map and our practical Gift Request|
|Printed by Glam Prints and Favors|
|Added a sleeve to the invitation set for a more rustic look using pattern paper, paper doily and jute/garden string.|
