Jennifer, of Something Detailed is here to share one brides full experience of working with a custom stationery designer. If you’ve been on the fence about working with a designer, this is a great post that shares the full process and I’m so happy she is sharing it with us today!
In my last post, I shared what you should expect when having custom wedding stationery designed. Being a graphic designer, I am very much a visual person! So, I thought I’d put together a visual of the design options and process of having your perfect invitation
Bride, Abby, and I sat down at Wedding 101 over coffee earlier this month with a general idea for her Save the Dates. She was inspired by a Hatch Show Print style, and they are getting married in downtown Nashville. Her love story is that she and J.B. actually dated in high school, 10 years ago, and had their high school Homecoming pictures to prove it! She wanted to somehow incorporate the “10 years later” theme into their save the dates with that picture and a current one. She didn’t have wedding colors picked out yet, so we sorted through color swatches until we came up with a modern and unique color palette for her save the dates and discussed paper types.
After learning more about her inspiration, I sent over 2 concepts for feedback and direction.
Abby loved the horizontal save the date, incorporating the 2 pictures. From there, we wanted to explore our color options. We tried all A) black and white, B) a combination of black and white and the wedding colors, and a couple of C) poster/cartooned-style pictures.
The final choice: B! A perfect combination to show off their Homecoming picture, have a little vintage letterpress inspiration with a modern twist on a classic and traditional couple.
From Abby, “Jennifer was amazing to work with. We had a small idea of what we wanted and she turned it into a really amazing invitation that was creative and really beautiful.”
Having custom wedding stationery designed will give you exactly what you are looking for, plus it’s fun! Happy planning!
