Bingham Wedding Part 5

As our place cards we printed menus with each guest's name at the top of it. Under the guest's name was a "eat, drink, and be married" logo. These were placed into folded napkins with just the name peeking out and were placed on top of silver chargers at each place setting. The knife was placed across the napkin just in case the wind picked up since it was an outdoor wedding.


Here are the save the dates that we sent out. We changed the date and location shortly after from June 7, 2008 in Bakersfield, CA to August 29, 2008 in Santa Barbara, CA. When we changed the date, we asked the Fess Parker Doubletree Resort to send us the postcards that they hand out in the hotel. We sent those postcards out with the information change to give our guests a sneak peek at our beachside location.



We wanted to include custom touches on our thank you cards as well. For the front of our cards, I designed and printed a 4x6 collage of our wedding pictures with our monogram in the center. We matted these onto chocolate brown cards. On the inside, guests found a copy of the picture that they had taken with us during the reception as well as a thank you. The pictures were attached with rubber cement so that guests could easily peel them off for safe keeping. Here are pictures of my mom's thank you.

Halloween: Alice In Wonderland Style, Part 2

Over a year ago, I got the chance to design birthday invitations and accessories for an adorable set of twins.  During that event, a guest at that party (Melanie) noticed my work and asked or my info so she could get in contact with me about her daughter's 8th birthday.  Soon after, we met and realized she actually lived on my same street!  As we spoke, she told me that her daughter, Maggi, was born on October 27th and  they had always had a Halloween inspired party for her but this year she wanted to put a twist on it.  I had just seen an Alice in Wonderland inspired paper line that had just hit the stores and when I showed the paper to Melanie she fell in love with the idea of using the paper as our inspiration and turning Maggi's party into a Alice in Wonderland tea party with a Halloween twist!
We designed two panel invitations that were held together with ribbon.  The fronts of the panels featured Alice in Wonderland and Halloween elements while the backs featured the in…

Brea + Byron | "Mustache Bash" Couple's Shower

Here is part 2 of Brea and Byron's baby shower designs!  For their couple's shower, they wanted "Mustache Bash" themed invitations incorporating a mustache and bow tie!  We were dying to design using this theme so we were thrilled when they contact us!  A chalkboard texture and chevron stripes were added into the design along with a black and white newspaper print pattern that is actually the same fabric that will be in Baby Young's nursery!  Brea's a teacher and wanted books for her little one so a book insert was also included in this design.  Love this idea!
