Since Christmas to now, I’ve been busy doing nice stuff, like choosing the wedding cake, car, photographer, shoes, booking the church and reception venue and finally making ‘the’ decision and buying my wedding dress!
Regarding the photos, I’ve been looking at real life wedding pics on the Snippet & Ink website, which have captured fun, romance and the moment.

Rachel & David’s Pastel Country Club Wedding

I’ve selected a lovely berrie and pale blue colour scheme for the wedding. These are two of my favourite colours and are also the colours within my partner’s kilt, that he will be wearing on the big day. The ceremony will be in the autumn and I would say that the red berrie colour will especially fit perfectly with the autumn season, complemented with hints of cool blue tones. Also, blush pink and ivory colours could look perfect within this colour palette too.

I have produced a few more ‘Save the Date’ cards and these are just two of my favourites:
Hand drawn invite
I love the hand drawn aspect of this design, however it takes some time to create, which I do by hand on paper first, then scan and redraw it in Illustrator. To produce other stationery i.e. wedding ceremony with venue information, menu cards etc, again, they would take longer to produce than if I used fonts that are already in InDesign or Illustrator. Therefore, I have designed an invite that is pretty, modern and has a romantic feel (flowers and the typograph).
Final ‘Save the Date’ invite
I really like the feel of this invite. It spells out ‘romantic wedding’ and did not take long to create. I feel confident producing the rest of the stationery in this style, perhaps changing the pink background colour to fit within the colour scheme and play with other types of flowers too. Perfect!!
