I’ve always believed the stationary sets the initial tone of how your guests interpret your wedding.. everything from the layout, design and information can translate the style of wedding so the guests know how formal or informal an event it is. Zac and I wanted our guests to feel the garden tone of our Sunday afternoon wedding. Thankfully Zac is an amazing graphic designer and used his side business, The Visual Shoppe, to design and print our invitations! We had a great time working on them together, and more creative reign over the project. Our venue, The Garden Room, has specific parking directions so we made a business card with our venue address info, parking instructions and the time so our guests could stick it in their wallet or car.
We chose a linen paper for casual elegance, and baby blue pearl finish envelopes from envelopes.com.
We also wanted to personalize our envelopes with PhotoStamps and a custom return address stamp from Etsy Shop, Purple Lemon Designs!
Our wedding had a dessert bar, so for fun we asked our wedding guests to tell us their favorite dessert on our RSVP cards..
We also used the picture of my engagement ring as the PhotoStamp for the response cards! We received so many compliments on the PhotoStamps and had people say, “we hated to throw the envelope away!”.. so, we went with a postcard for our thank you notes with another photo! I love the monogram and flowers Zac put on the back of the cards.
I’m so glad we had some left over for a keepsake :)
