Back in February, we helped Brooke’s friend Leah with her wedding invitations.
Leah was looking for a pretty traditional layout with non-traditional wording, and also wanted to incorporate some important symbols. Her wish list included an antique look (possibly an old photo as a watermark of sorts), wedding rings, the Bible, and an emphasis on Christ. She also wanted us to use her wedding colors – lavender and sage green.
After playing around with lots of ideas, we finally ended up designing a custom border that brought in almost all of her initial thoughts.
We started with a simple lavender border and then created interlocking circles in sage, one thicker than the other, to represent wedding rings. For the inner border, we chose Ephesians 5:31-33, and set it in a simple script font called Lavanderia.
We used the same script font for their names and selected IM Fell English for the text.
Leah’s mother found a great deal on a print-at-home invitation suite with handmade paper jackets and packages of petal seals to complete the look.
Her mother and I printed and assembled the invitations in an afternoon and the invitations were on their way within a few days!
