After several months of projects and what can best be described as "life events," I'm back to the blog! And what better way to come back than show all of you the biggest project Banded Arrow completed!

You might remember Nick and Alaina from the save-the-date set I created for them last October. They asked me to work on their wedding invitation suite as well! Alaina loved the save-the-dates and basically gave me free reign when it came to designing the invitations in the same style. I started out with the same paper (Cream and Kraft card stock from French Paper Co.) and ink colors and the same floral details, as they complement so nicely!

With most of the design elements already in place, the biggest challenge was simply organizing the layout of the invites. We wanted something a little bit unique, but that still fit with the relaxed atmosphere Alaina wanted at her wedding.

So this is where we landed! Three pieces: the main invitation, a RSVP postcard, and a reception card, plus an envelope. The main invitation attached to a long piece of kraft paper. The ends of the paper folded together and were tied up with a sparkly cream ribbon, with the RSVP postcard and reception card held neatly inside. Then when the invitations were opened, the guests saw a pretty floral pattern which perfectly complements the other design elements of the invitation. Simple and elegant.

With all of the big decisions hammered out, I used a balance of fonts to add some excitement to the invitations once again and topped it all off with Nick and Alaina's hand-lettered names. then it was time to start printing!

Once printed, I also addressed the invitations with a pretty complementary font, and then sent them off. As always, designing custom invitations is my favorite job at Banded Arrow, and it was great to be able to work with Nick and Alaina again! For anyone interested in their own set of Banded Arrow wedding invitations, you can read up on the process and how to order, or you can just send me a message!

Thanks for stopping by!
