I really enjoy creating stuff and I have been asked to do the invitations for a friend-of-a-friend’s wedding. SHe asked me to do the photography too, but the date she will be married is 2 days after my 40 wks due date so (even if I have given birth 3 weeks previous to that at 37 weeks I don’t imagine I’ll be in any fit state to flit all around and capture the action like I did for my friend Dee’s wedding (which happened to be at the same venue!).
I can’t wait to get all creative about my own wedding celebrations (we will mark the occasion later on) and I am just over the moon about the very serious commitment AW and I are making in just over two week’s time! We had the rings polished up and made like new and I will wear one of my favourite dresses in royal blue. I’ll also be wearing some old favourite shoes (something old, something new, something blue… now what about something borrowed?). I am not sure if I mentioned the seriously cute stamps we had carved for us in Hanoi? I plan to hand make invitations using them (I think).
Below are my first invitation attempts for my friend-of-a-friend. If you like what you see here, let me know if you can gainfully employ me for your own wedding or party invitations – I really enjoy it!
The Orange ones are looking to be the favourites as her wedding’s colour-theme is orange. 🙂
