Part Two: Designing My Wedding Invitation

In honor of my eighth Wedding Anniversary I wanted to share my first wedding design project with you. When I got engaged I knew that my invitations had to be designed by me and they had to be handmade. My focus was on the paper selection; a tri-fold invitation, handmade paper insert and an overlay of vellum paper was my final choice. I assembled and printed one hundred & ten invitation. I used my EPSON Inkjet 1280 Stylist Photo printer, to print all the invitations and then added a rubber stamp detail on the front cover.  The invitations had to reflect an elegance and warmth we wanted share with our guest. My mom by default turned out to be a great wedding planner. She helped facilitate the many details of the wedding that I could not have done myself. Living out of the state where we were having the wedding had its challenges. Luckily my mom came to the rescue and planned a fabulous wedding. Even though it was eight year ago today that we got married I feel there is a timeless elegance to our wedding. Happy Anniversary to my wonderful husband!
