First Wedding Invitations of the Year.

I’ve been making wedding invitations this week…the first of the year!  It’s the first ime I’ve used lace on an invitation and I like the look of it!  I can see a trend starting here…..vintage wedding invitations!  Although these aren’t very vintage-like.  Unfortunately, the bride-to-be for this wedding wanted approximately 600 folder style invitations, with 3 inserts in each!!!  I didn’t fancy all that distressing!!
As you might have guessed, I’ve used pink petticoat papers again, sweet flourishes I believe, printed on to pearlised paper to give it a shimmer.  I’ve trimmed it with lace and finished it with ribbon and a bow.

This second one was specifically created for this wedding.  As this was for an Asian wedding there are three occasions – a whole weekend of wedding parties.  This invite folds out to give the details of all three occasions….I was quite proud of this design.
The main theme of the invitations was lace, so this is trimmed with lace and ribbon on the front, and finished off with golden gems.
