Wedding Stationery

Hello everyone, hope you've all had a lovely weekend........I haven't had chance to make any cards for a few days, so thought I'd show you the wedding stationery I made for my eldest son Nick and his gorgeous new wife, Emma. They got married on 18th December 2011, and we had so many nice comments re- the stationery, that I thought you might like to see them........it will be a long post, so please bear with me.

This is the complete set, apart from the 'table' layouts, which I'll show you later.






From left to right......menu card, order of service, day & evening invitation, thank you,.......Small cards for 'best man, bridesmaids and 'readers' to enclose with their gifts,.......table place names.......detailed inserts for the daytime invites.




This is the pocketed inside of the day invite, with enclosures.



I made a total of 90 invites for the day and night......all the same with just the inside details changed.



One of the table cards, showing menu on one side and the reason why there was no 'favours', on the other side. Nick and Emma decided to give a donation to the charity Mind, in memory of Nick's late dad, instead of  'favours'

 There was 30 of these altogether, divided between 10 tables.


Order of Service


The outside of the Order of Service was made exactly as the invite, the insert was printed on pearl paper.



 

I also made a smaller card for each of the bridesmaids, the readers, and of course the 'Best Man'.......8 cards in total.  These small cards were enclosed with their 'thank you' gifts.


And last but not least for this part, 105 table place settings.


Got to admit that I felt very, very proud when I walked into the wedding breakfast and saw all the stationery set out on the tables.  The table names were chosen from all the places and countries where Nick and Emma have snowboarded, with the main one being Whistler, their most favourite place in the world to 'board.

The (very, very) happy couple......

The table plan......the last part of the set, and didn't I breathe a sigh of relief when this was done :)


Ooops, almost forgot the 100 Thank You cards which I made when Nick and Emma were on Honeymoon in Mexico


Now, I did say this was going to be a long post, sorry........tomorrow, I'll show you the list of everything I used to make the complete set......Mmmmmmmmmmm, bet you can't wait. :)
 
Until then, have a good evening x
ps. let me know what you think so far.......

  3. OMG ... I am just blown away by the commitment,time and overall beauty of the entire project. You really did them proud Barbara. I don't think I could undertake such a task .... I don't use the word 'stunning' often, as it's thrown around in our crafty world all the time .... But the whole wedding complete with your stunning stationery is just the most magnificent work!
