After a year of planning and preparing June 23, 2012 was a huge success! The blog has been incredibly neglected over the past few months due to the wedding, but I think you will enjoy this post and hopefully think it was worth the wait. Ned Jackson was our amazing photographer and all the photo credits go to him. Please check out his work on his blog - he is awesome!
Here are pictures of all the print related items that helped make the wedding a huge success. Amanda Fox did an outstanding job designing all of these pieces
The save the dates were poster sized and mailed to guests in
craft paper tubes. The posters were rolled and tied with a piece
of jute and dried purple flowers.
Save the Date Poster and Invitation
Blue envelopes were adorned with custom address labels for each guest. The invitation was
held together in a matching pocket folder that was kept closed with a lime green bellyband.
All together the invitation included an invitation card, information card, RSVP card, RSVP stickers,
RSVP envelope and a brunch invitation.
The pocket folder kept the many pieces of the invitation neatly organized.
Instead of having guests check a box to accept or regret, they chose the appropriate sticker to
adhere to the RSVP card.
Guests were welcomed at their hotels with a goody bag filled with drinks and snacks.
Groomsman with programs
The front of the program gave guests details about the ceremony.
The back of the program was a timeline of the evening so guests
knew what to expect.
Guests left notes on different wine bottles to be opened when celebrating different anniversaries.
Cheers to 5 and 10 Years!
