Our Wedding: The Invitation
Posted on: 8th of March 2011 | Under: Life & Love, Our Wedding

Our Church Wedding on the 18th of February was probably my most beautiful and happiest day ever. Every girl has her dream wedding, and I have to say that our big day turned out to be so much more than what I had dreamed of. I could not have wanted it any better.

We are currently sorting through the thousands of photos our photographers (we had four!) took that day, so while we’re at it, here’s our wedding invitation.

Design: Printsonalities, with a bit of editing by me (yeah, I’m OC like that =P)
Printer: Printsonalities
Monogram Design: Me

The envelope with our monogram embossed on the flap.

Our Wedding Invitation: pocket fold style. We had the 250 gsm cover customized to a matte Pantone 2623-U color.

The front flap of the invitation had the monogram which I designed early last year. I also added tiny gems in the middle of each invitation, just to add some texture.

Folded out, we had the main invitation on the left, and three wedding card infos in the pocket on the right. The main invitation was printed using a thermography process (raised/embossed lettering), while the rest were flat printed.

Aside from our actual invitation, the husband and I also made a digital copy of our invitation online (I arranged the layout, while JR handled the coding). It was so much easier and more cost effective sharing the online invitation to family and friends overseas, rather than mailing them actual copies of the invitation each. It was also a fun project for the both of us. :)

Overall, we were really happy with our wedding invitation. It fit really well with the entire theme of the wedding. The damask pattern was also used throughout the reception details and decor (no peerless mounts, though). I’ll post photos of those soon.

Stay tuned for the wedding photos, coming soon. :)

    hi, anna! glad to see you’re back on the blogging scene and i was very happy to see your invitation and wedding pics too. they are the most gorgeous wedding pictures i have ever seen. very elegant and fashion forward. i am glad you and JR had a beautiful and i am sure heartwarming ceremony. :)

    i really loved the motif color of the bridesmaid dresses. looks kinda like a magenta. very unique. best of all, you are one very beautiful bride. you looked like a doll and i loved your dress. :)

    thanks for the compliment about the outfit. it sure was comfy. the jeggings especially. even my mom is into jeggings. they look great, yet they’re easy to get into and easy to move around in too. :)

    hope all is well with you too. :)

    Aww, thank you! :) We loved every minute of our big day. :)

    We were supposed to have plum dresses for the bridesmaids to match the invitation. But I totally fell in love with the magenta fabric, I just couldn’t resist! Hehe! :)

    Oh! I’ve been living in jeggings lately, too. LOL!
