my sister's wedding

My little sister is getting married in June and here is a peek at her beautiful wedding invitations. She designed and made all by herself. Pretty impressive right?! Her wedding has a vintage, travel theme and I think they capture this mood perfectly. She is British, her fiancee is from New Zealand, they live in Australia together and the wedding is taking place in England so this is where the travel aspect comes in. For the Save the Dates, pictured above, she went with a simple but striking luggage tag inspired design.

She sourced all the beautiful vintage stamps for the invitation envelopes from an antiques market in Melbourne and to create the invitations she went through our late Grandmothers postcard collection and also postcards from her fiancees ancestors to select a range that represented their respective home regions and countries. She scanned in the five chosen images and then designed the layout of the information to go on the back of each postcard- e.g. one is the actual invitation, one is the RSVP card, one is a map, another is a little story of how they met.

The back of the envelopes are embellished with a stamp she designed and had made up which is a combination of their first name initials. Nice finishing touch! I'm so proud of her efforts and to happy to be involved in the wedding which is going to be visually stunning if these are any indication. I have more images of some beautiful props she has sourced for the day which I'll share in another post soon.
