A couple of months ago, I started to work with Jervis and Jen on their wedding invite suite. I love designing for the people I know best...especially when they trust me and let me have fun with it. I gave them 5 different options and they ended up choosing the more rustic design...which happened to be my favorite and the one I thought would go best with their outdoor Texas wedding.
Jen's parents own a print shop, so I didn't need to produce everything...but it also meant that I didn't get to see a lot of the finished product before it went out.
We got our invite in the mail on Friday (albeit a bit beat up) and I'm so happy with how it turned out! And so happy that Jen decided to go bold...Let me tell you, that magenta envelope makes a serious statement when you open your mailbox!
I took a few elements from Wendy and Irving's vintage circus invite (the labels, etc):
We decided to do a belly band to hold everything together and Jen loved the idea of it being magenta with a silver "double happiness" stamp:
We also went with an RSVP postcard instead of the traditional card/envelope combo:
