This could be the longest absence I have had from my blog since I got very ill late last year. But it’s for good reason. I just recently got engaged AND I’m in absolute bliss right now.
The problem is I really value my work and since my fiance and I have decided to get married this year I really needed to check off some ultra big wedding items out of my check list to get back to my normal life. So with all that out of the way, I can focus back on work and of course get back to my regular postings in this blog.
So I sincerely apologise for my neglect but to celebrate my return and my newly engaged status I thought I would quite fittingly post a series of awesome and innovative wedding invitations.
I recently attended a design conference called Semi Permanent in Sydney and I fell in LOVE with Kelli Andersen, who created these paper record invites. Paper record invites?? Yes, paper record invites, her invites literally play a low-fi song just with paper and a pin. You MUST see this in action! You won’t believe your eyes!
Seven swans created this very simple, yet effective die cut invitation booklet for this couple. I really love the simplicity of the whole piece. It has a real craft vibe to it and the couple is just so darn cute.
But if you’re looking for something cheaper and still unique this is your thing. How cute is this origami heart, it’s adorable. These were originally Amy Moss’ wedding / engagement invites (from Eat, Drink Chic Blog) but she’s allowed her readers to take her template to create their own little love notes.
And if you want to go ultra geek and retro I stumbled upon these awesome invites. They are the old school viewmasters, where each slide is an image of the couple inviting their guests. How original! It’s slightly expensive (by my standards anyway). But if you’re willing to spend on awesomeness you can buy them at Etsy.
Hopefully you guys have fallen in love and been inspired. Wedding invitations, who would have thought they could be so cool? They totally beat the traditional “script and calligraphy” deal.
