J and I are in the process of designing our invitations. It wasn’t until I initiated this process that I realized I have a crafty side! I hated art in elementary school, but collecting images, selecting designs, creating layouts, cutting and gluing paper, and using trial and error to determine our final invitation look absolutely delights me!!! I am loving this part of wedding planning!
Step 1: Inspiration
I foraged through wedding blogs, etsy.com, and invitation websites to see what’s in trend and what’s unique. Here are some pieces that caught my attention:
From Atelier Isabey (a classic invitation design company):
From Soulful Moon (modern take on classic Indian design):
From Paper Marche (love the liner in the envelope, the bright colour, and graphic pattern):
The following images are all from independent artists on etsy.com. The individual etsy profile names are listed below the picture:
Inspiration conclusion: I’m feeling graphic patterns, mendhi artwork, bold colours, and a tri-fold card with pocket for inserts
