[Our D.I.Y. Wedding] The invitations

MbM_wedding-invitations (web)So after a few weeks of designing and several print runs followed by two weekends of assembling, I am pleased to say that the wedding invitations were successfully all posted out to their recipients!

Really delighted with how they turned out; we kept the overall design quite simple but still reflecting the ‘fusion’ elements with the geometric celtic-indian patterns and our chosen colour palette. And the best part of all this was having the personalised stamps made on the designs we came up with; the silouettes of our heads and the postal stamp bearing our wedding date, just to add that extra bit of personalised touch and handmade factor to the Invitation pack. FYI – I am officially a huge fan of rubber stamps!!! :) The ‘silhouette heads’ stamp was custom made by The English Stamp Co. and the ‘postal date stamp’ was ordered on Etsy.

Seeing as most of our guests were coming over to Scotland for the first time, it was essential that we provided all the information we could to make their journey and time over much easier and less daunting. No matter how many weddings you attend, and from personal experiences, you’d be surprised how lost you can be sometimes which is why I do think it’s always nice to give your guests a good idea of how the big day/weekend pans out especially if it’s a destination wedding. So along with the Invitation and the RSVP, we provided a little ‘Particulars’ booklet that included information on the venues (this was shown on a clear map so they could see exactly where they were located), accommodation, travel arrangements, wedding day itinerary and key contact details. We also decided on creating a wedding website too (the link we provided on the ‘particulars’) that provided more detailed information for our guests for the few days they were going to be over for, including ‘things to do’, ‘what to pack’, ‘dress code’ etc. B was in charge of this one and did a fabulous job at assembling it and tying in all the design elements we used on the invitations. Anyway, you can have a look yourself and tell us what you think. xx
