Recently I got requested to design the invitations for a wedding in New Zealand! The bride wanted me to create something with chalkboard and rustic look. I dove into her ideas, and came up with this:
Back in 2013, chalkboard invitations were trending like crazy. But if you look back, you will see that most of the designs involved Vintage fonts and style. I wanted this Invitation Set to be more simple and bold. A little organic, but modern at the same time.
When I'm designing, I like brainstorming with the bride about her wedding. I've been a bride before, and we all know planning a wedding can be stressful, but oh it's so much fun! As a Wedding Stationer, I get to go through all the fun stuff over and over again. And I love it! Each bride is different. They have different dreams and ideas for their big day. Which means each project I take on is a totally unique experience, which requires an open mind to all the sweet dreams my brides have.
As this project was evolving, I stumbled across this gorgeous wedding that was featured on Style Me Pretty. It brought me a lot of inspiration. I love her choices on the flowers and the colors... I can't say enough about these photos! Autumn weddings have a very special spot in my heart, friends. They truly inspire me. Fall is by far my favorite season.
