It is usually advisable that brides come to me about six months before their wedding date. This gives me time to meet with the bride, design the invitation, order the product, print everything, assemble everything, and get the product back to the bride with some time to spare before their invites need to go out.
This blog post is proof that even if you're working with a smaller time frame, everything can still come out just the way you imagined it.
Meghan called me over the 4th of July weekend. She was getting married in October and she needed to get her invitations done...and quickly. We decided on a time to meet and began the process right away.
Luckily, her and her fiance, Kenny, were a breeze to work with. They looked through my prototypes, decided on a pocket fold invitation (who doesn't love a good pocket fold?), and I got to work on their invitations.
No need for any more talk...here's the finished invitation suite.
(I must say, I'm completely in love with the 5x5 pocketfolds.)
Meghan and Kenny wanted to use purple in their invitations, but not too much of it. We decided just to add a few pops of it here and there.
We backed the main invitation with a plain purple...I mean, Majestic, to use the proper name of the color. :) We decided to back the RSVP card with a patterned paper.
This RSVP card was a winner. Meghan actually texted me after they had sent the invites out and said that the general consensus was that people loved the RSVP card the most. Those little cards are small but mighty, I tell you.
And look at that...everything folds up perfectly right into the envelope. I just love how practical these invites are.
I'm actually working on Meghan and Kenny's programs right now so I'll be back in a few weeks blogging about those!
And I'll be back tomorrow with a second blog post for the week (can you handle this much excitement?!) about how I did on my August Fun List. Let me just say, 'keep designing invites' was definitely crossed off. :)
