Last December, my good friend asked me to design some wedding invitation samples for her daughter who was planning a wedding for this October. I put together three samples and she ended up choosing this one:
And here’s the inside (the lettering on the inside panel looks a little off because I removed any personal information to protect the family’s privacy):
It’s a tri-fold with a pocket on the inside that holds three inserts for Directions, the Dinner Reception and the RSVP card. The invitation measures a standard 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.
I ended up cutting and scoring 350 of these but we ended up assembling only 300 ;). This was a long process — we met three different Saturdays over the course of several months to put these together. The bride loved how they turned out, but they were a lot of work! 🙂 From embossing the front panel and the pocket, to cutting out the medallions on the belly band, these were a lot of work. 🙂 Oh, and did I mention these were a lot of work? 🙂 All kidding aside, I was so honored that they asked me to design something so important for them and was thrilled to be a part of the process! Congratulations Meghan and Adam!
