Today I have some super creative wedding invitations to share with you guys! The first was sent to me by reader Meagan Pierce. Meagan’s mom, brother and friend helped her create these beauties! A bit about the invites from Meagan, My mom + brother bought a sheet of plywood from Lowe’s and cut them into 5×7 pieces and sanded them down/rounded the edges themselves. Then they gave them to my friend Jessica who is a graphic designer. She created the front side based off a photograph from our engagement shoot. She drew the picture of us and they turned out identical! After she designed everything she took them to screenprint, which she did herself. All of our guests have ooh’ed and awed over them!
I think these below might have some of the most detailed + fun use of type I’ve seen for a Save the Date! These were designed by Jennifer James at Two Paperdolls. Jennifer designed these for her sister, Kelly. Since it was her sister, she was able to create a design that shares lots of fun little details about the couple – love that!
And the balloon Save the Date – so so creative. Love it. After ten years together, Jen + Kevin got engaged in Paris – a location they subtly acknowledged in a nod to Albert Lamorisse’s short film The Red Balloon when designing their save the date announcement. Wanting to treat their wedding as a big party more so than a traditional event, each guest received a deflated, red balloon tied to a letterpress printed card reading: “Hello! Please inflate the balloon.” Once inflated, the piece reveals all relevant information and sets the desired tone with humor and playfulness.
