Production of Tom and the Lovely Laura’s wedding invitations is about to start, I’d got the designs pretty bang on, it was just a matter of what colours to go for.
All along Laura said she wanted “a rainbow” wedding, and had already purchased miles and miles of ribbon with which to make her own and bridesmaids bouquets, plus guests buttonholes and table centrepieces, so the obvious thing to do was to link the ribbon colours in with the invitations etc. and as they were vivid rainbow colours, it was a piece of (wedding)cake to find papers to match.
The plan now is to use both designs, making 45 of each, using either a purple, turquoise or pink coloured ribbon, with silver (punched) dragonflies. There is a little fine tweaking to do, like matching up the colour of the printing to the ribbon used, but after that, Wednesday nights will be a flurry of activity as anyone in the family who wants to do a bit of punching and sticking is invited round for “Crafting Night”
Effectively no two invitations should be the same, because once we start our production line, it will be up to the individual maker as to which colours they use to put the flowers together …… so each guest will receive something really, really unique. I still have to order the envelopes, which we will then line with paper that matches the ribbon on the invitation.
We shall also be using the punched daisies as table confetti with a few gems scattered in, and, if it’s possible, for the real confetti.
