Let’s start with the invitation. The bride gave me some examples of what she liked and we went from there. We got the paper from paper source and although we knew that the colors would be pink and orange and gray but this was the first time we really saw them all together. I can get the specific paper color names if you are interested. I used my cricut to cut out about 200 of the orange wraps to go around the envelope. We used pink seam binding ribbon to tie the back. As a pop, we used orange envelopes and lined them with a bright pink and orange paper.
Next lets talk about hotel favor boxes. I found the boxes from Garnish. The bags are from Shop Sweet Lulu. Two of my favorite party sites.
There is candy in the bags, and popcorn and dr. pepper. The bride and groom chose some of their favorite treats to leave for the guests.
I showed these doors on the last set of pictures but wanted to say I found these letters at JoAnns. We just painted the edge orange and added the ribbon.
From a distance you can see the placecards at the head table. We didn’t do placecards everywhere, just the head table and family tables.
Here is the front of the program. I designed it to be similar to the bridesmaid skirts to tie everything together.
Here is the back of the program. I used the same pattern on the back as the invitations.
Since the ceremony was outside… and it was September… and it was Texas, we offered water and strawberry lemonade to the guests as they arrived. I created custom straw flags with their initials on the front and the wedding date on the back. The straws are from Shop Sweet Lulu.
Strawberry lemonade… yummy!
Also because of the whole Texas heat thing we offered fans to the guests and I designed a tag with their names and wedding date. The colorful fans were so pretty to see at the ceremony and came in handy when we got hot on the dance floor later!
We used smaller pieces of the same color invitation paper for the guest book and a vase to drop them in. I made a sign to tell the guests what to do.
This lighted sign was made by one of the brides friends for her shower and I liked it so much I asked if we could use it for the wedding. It worked perfectly as a backdrop to the guest book table and later in the evening the party favor table.
The bride made like 500 whoopie pies in two flavors as party favors for the guests. I made a sticker telling the guests what they were (and who made them) for the box and tied them up with bakers twine in pink and orange.
I had so much fun creating all the graphics for the wedding. It was fun to make sure everything tied together and was customized for the bride and groom.
