This past Saturday I got married and thankfully everything turned out great. Without sounding too cheesy or getting off subject with my blog, I’m going to skip the wedding details for now and forward to the design aspects of it.
Leading up the wedding we needed invites, a website, tags, guest books, etc. After looking around the web for a while, I didn’t really like any of the pre-made templates that I came across and decided to create my own items. I never created anything for a wedding before and had no clue what I would have to do.
I had a little over a year to complete everything, which is a good amount of time. This allowed me to look for various vendors for certain things. I still designed everything myself but found places to print books, invites and so on. All of the companies I used had an easy process and were great to work with, I would recommend them to anyone. If anyone is in a similar situation and needs some suggestions, below is some of the collateral I created and where I got them done.
Website: Simple one page site in the style of the theme of the wedding.
Save the Date Invites: Embossed with Gold Foil, printed at Thomas Printers
Wax Stamp: Created at Nostalgic Impressions
Party Favor Tags: I used Luxe Minicards from MOO and cut the ends off the top and hole-punched it.
Guest Book: I created the book from Blurb. Since we were having a photobooth, the idea was to have the guest sign 1 side of a page that had a small design and paste their photo on the opposite side.
