From inspiration to reality – The paper products

Designing invites, programs, save the dates, signage, and RSVP’s was one of the MOST daunting tasks we underwent during the wedding process, but it was so worth it. If you design it yourself, it really has YOU in it and you know that you will be 100% happy with it. I definitely don’t recommend it if you don’t have Adobe Creative Suite to help you out though! My biggest advice with DIY invites, is don’t procrastinate (like we did) because it makes life so stressful. Also, ask for a fresh set of eyes ALWAYS to help you proofread. The last thing you EVER EVER EVER want is a misspelling or error on something that you could have prevented! And be aware that you will need to print things constantly to check it all, so have one handy! Now for the fun part!

Invite inspiration

Loved the shape of this so much! Click the image to see the original post!

I really liked the narrow chevron and the paper texture. I also loved the location of the chevron at the top.

Corey designed the adorable logo on the RSVP. The Aerialist Press letterpressed the invites and address on the envelope on gorgeous Crane textured paper. Corey and I designed and laid out all of it. We loved coordinating the stamps to the invite colors and we tied yellow baker’s twine around the suite.


Save the date inspiration

We really liked the postcard idea and the layout on the back. We also loved the metallic paper. Click image to go to the etsy listing!

We loved the white blocked out squares on the bold yellow background. We incorporated that onto the front of our save the date. Click the image to go to the designer’s site.

Finished result of our save the dates. We designed them (Corey drew the adorable logo) and had them printed at a local art store called Sam Flax. We ordered linen finish 80# metallic paper from Paces Papers in Buckhead. We were so pleased with how they turned out at the end! Notice the coordinating stamps 😉


Program inspiration

We liked the shape, again, and the logo on the front of the bifold program.

Loved the chevron background of this and the script combined with the block font. Please do yourself a favor and click the image, the wedding is GORGEOUS.

The beautiful wedding programs. I was so thrilled with how these turned out. Corey had a heavy hand in designing these – he came up with the logo on the front and drew the map on the back. He also came up with the idea of using light grey chevron in the background instead of yellow. I used the same font that was on the invite and RSVP for the script front. My mom printed these and folded them for us too!

Everything together! I can’t forget the Rehearsal Dinner invites, which were designed and printed by Darby Cards in Nashville. She was GREAT to work with and we loved them!

So there you have it! I would love to hear what you like best!
