Aimee & Jay : Wedding Day Accents

Aimee and Jay's wedding day extras included a seating chart design, program cover design and table numbers. All of the pieces were designed to coordinate with their elegant pink and black wedding invitations.

A formal script monogram and framed dinner menu is featured on their pink and black seating chart.

Aimee was creating her own programs but asked if I would design the cover. I incorporated a quote that was used on her wedding invitations, along with an incredible photo that of the bride and groom that was taken at a wedding 19 years ago! Jay was the ring bearer and Aimee was the flower girl. How sweet is this photo??

Aimee and Jay will have a whopping 40 tables at their wedding this weekend, and each with its own unique table name and corresponding quote that they thoughtfully selected. The cards themselves are printed on metallic pink and backed with a black metallic tented card.

Summer & Jason : Wedding Invitations

These invitations are so special to me. Summer is one of my best friends and she granted me total creative freedom with the format and design of her wedding invitations. The three main design elements I wanted to incorporate included her wedding colors - plum and light / dark shades of kiwi green, her flowers - cymbidium orchids, and a fun modern vintage style.

The panel invitation, information card and response postcard were held together with a layered paper wrap that is personalized with a musical lyric by Billy Joel.

The invitation is framed with polka dots and orchids. I love how the organic looking orchid sketch looks with the symmetrical frame and polka dot pattern.

The response postcard includes a few different dinner options for guests to choose from, and features polka dots, orchids and a monogram of Summer and Jason's first names.

The information card is the same size as the invitation, so it was large enough to include accommodations and directions information, as well as a location map of their ceremony and reception venue and the surrounding Ann Arbor, Michigan area.

Andrea & Jordan : Wedding Invitations

Andrea received my contact info through two friends who were married this spring and both Plush Paper clients. Andrea sent me a sample invitation image that she found on the Internet, and we moved forward with the same ecru and navy colors and 4 x 9" landscape panel format, but a completely different design.

The sample invitation was really simple and had a ribbon detail that was the feature of the invitation. Andrea chose to move forward with a modern floral scroll design instead, which I paired with a framed monogram of their first names and wedding date.

The monogram and floral design was repeated on the back of their response postcard. Custom postage stamps with their monogram were used to personalize the cards.

A second insert card was created with their reception and directions information.

Wrap-around labels with guest and return address printing dressed up the navy metallic mailing envelopes, as did custom postage stamps!

Rachel & Michael : Wedding Day Accents

I created a variety of different wedding paper extras for Rachel and Mike's big day, and they were all designed with the same style and gorgeous plum and green shades as their wedding invitations.

The gatefold programs with a monogram seal were Rachel's idea, and I love how they turned out!

Mini green envelopes were personalized with hand-written guest names and escort cards were placed within.

Table number cards

Guest menu cards

And finally, signage for their photo booth / guestbook, for the bar and for all three of their yummy wedding cake flavors.

Teresa & Mike : Wedding Invitations

For those of you who follow my blog, you may remember Teresa and Mike's movie marquee save the dates that were created earlier this year. They came together so well that I couldn't wait to work on their movie poster wedding invitations!

Their poster invitation features a photo of the happy couple with the title "Here's a Story", and has their names across the top and wedding invitation details below. One of my favorite details is the movie review quotes that were added.

Within a personalized "Ticket is enclosed" envelope, guests will find a response card that is designed as a two-sided movie ticket postcard. It has a ticket stub for guests to tear off and retain. Clever movie-themed wording is used throughout this invitation set, and I love the "I'll be ready for my cameo" that they chose for the yes response. Also, because they are hosting a "Wedding Day Double Feature" (rehearsal and wedding day) for all guests, they included a fun film strip check box to get a head count for both events.

A two-sided information card was also created for the accommodations, map and directions details.

Teresa and Mike will be sending these festive unique invitations in white poster mailing tubes with custom mailing labels that coordinate with their invitation sets.
