Happy Thursday, Friends!

Hope you all had a wonderful summer. Feels like fall is starting to settle in already.  Summer will be missed, but I know most of us are looking forward to cozy sweater weather and pumpkin spice lattes. And for those in the wedding biz, there are many gorgeous fall weddings to plan and look forward to!

I just wanted to take some time today to share some of my latest work with everyone. This is a beautiful, romantic pink and gray wedding invitation I made recently for a friend.  Take a look at the details!

Matching escort cards — colored flowers indicate meal selection from RSVP card

This design was completely custom and so much fun to make!

I sat with the bride, and after showing her some previous invitations I’ve made and lots of browsing on the internet (mostly Pinterest), we came up with a look that was unique to her.  We discussed her theme (soft romance and elegance), colors (dusty rose and blush, ecru and ivory, dark gray and small hints of aqua), flowers (carnations and hydrangeas), all of which are reflected in her soft, floral design.

Over the following month we communicated via email to nail down final design details, like colors, fonts, paper selection, and from there I put it all together and shipped it back to her in PA!  Piece of cake.  I’m proud to say that the bride was very happy with her invitations and escort cards.

And as the wedding day drew nearer, the bride sent me a final seating chart so that I could print escort cards for her guests.  Bonus detail: the color of the flower next to the name indicates what meal they chose on their RSVP card.

Stay tuned for my follow up post on styling a pink and gray wedding of your own!
