Our wedding invites!

We've been wanting to share our wedding invites on here for AGES but we wanted to wait until everybody we've invited had pretty received there's so as not to ruin the surprise! We found it a pretty hard thing to design. Initially we had quite a few cute ideas but when we actually started to think practically about the amount of information that was needed on a wedding invite we soon realised we needed to tackle it in a different way. We WERE going to just screenprint the main invite page as a one, possibly two, colour print. Somehow (I'm pretty sure it was Jam's idea) we ended up screenprinting the whole shebang in not one but FIVE colours. Our wedding hasn't got a 'colour scheme' as most weddings do (unless you count ALL the colours) and so we loved the idea of people opening up this really bright and vibrant set of A5 prints. We chose gold as the one colour that was used on each page as you can't print magical sparkly gold digitally and it looks AMAZING, the pics don't really do it justice. Also the neon pink on the first page is IMPOSSIBLE to photograph, it's insanely bright in real life.
I don't know if many people when they look at our invites will understand the hours and HOURS of work that they took, seriously the five longest and most stressful print runs of our lives! It was pretty hard actually packing them up and sticking them in the post box by the end of it. But looking at them now we're so chuffed that we put all that extra hard work in...the colurs, the print quality, the overlays and little inconsistencies make us super happy :o)

We've had loads of RSVPs and so far they've all been very happy yes's and no one has admitted to being smelly! We're also really enjoying getting song suggestions for the party playlist, we've had some awesome ones so far!

And here's a bit of the actual print process...
We hope you enjoyed seeing our wedding invites! I'm really looking forward to all of the wedding related things we can blog about after the wedding which we're keeping secret for now!

  6. I agree with you thoroughly. Looking at the images, one can barely make out that you had to put in so much effort making this simple looking wedding invitation. I loved the beautiful way you have designed the card. The colour choice of course is a bit too feminine but it is impressive.
