Jessica and Jeffrey's Sparkler Wedding Invitations

I just realized that I have two brides that I worked with that have weddings in July and are named Jessica and have fiancé's named Jeffrey. How weird is that?

Also, how weird is it that I only just noticed it when I went to write their blog posts?

I do hope you all enjoyed your Mother's Day weekends (and may I just say a late Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there?). I just got back on Tuesday evening from Virginia, where my mom and I drove to visit my grandparents in Williamsburg as well as my brother and his wife in Richmond. We had a great time and enjoyed the beautiful Virginia weather ( Michigan it was in the 50s this past weekend. not sad I missed that).

So even though it is Thursday, it feels like Tuesday to me, which we can all agree is the best feeling in the world (much better than thinking it's Thursday when it's actually Tuesday).

It usually takes me a day to get back into the swing of things, so that's what I did yesterday. Now I'm back and ready to share some invitations with you that I absolutely adore.

Jessica came to me a few months ago to talk about her wedding invitations. Her and her fiancé are getting married on the Saturday after the 4th of July and she wanted to incorporate some sparklers and hearts into their invitation. Here's what we ended up with.

Jessica kept it so simple. We have the main invitation.

One insert.

And the RSVP card.

The fonts are Lavenderia and Antipasto. We printed on a textured ecru card stock - I love that it's such beautiful paper that you can actually see the texture in these pictures.

Jessica also kept her directions card simple, just listing the addresses. In a world where everyone has a GPS (which my dad actually calls Global Positioning Systems - amazing), most people will just plug the address in and go.

So that's it. I absolutely love the color, the simplicity, and the fonts that Jessica picked. She was such a sweet bride to work with. Next week I'm going to show off some side projects I've been working on. Have a great weekend!

  1. Such pretty invites!

    Quick questions: I have seen an M on the return line - on many response cards - I presuming it's the start of either Mr/Mrs/Ms, however I am slightly confused as to why it used? Thanks!

    1. You are right, Emily - it is the start of Mr/Mrs/Ms. :) It is used to indicate that the guest should put their names there so the engaged couple knows exactly who is coming to their wedding. Thanks for reading!
