I poured many hours into this project and it was well worth it! Hand-torn taffeta backed each piece of the main invitation, which were then wrapped with thread and adorned with iridescent shell buttons. The invitations were sent out in long rectangular chocolate envelopes with coordinating custom stamps.
My sisters and friends are scattered across the country, so instead of making a phone call to ask each of them to stand up in the
wedding, I decided to send them each a small note. I wrote a little message to each of the girls’ and printed it out on silk, which I then stitched to a grey note card. I placed a delicate leaf on each card and wrapped the grouping in chocolate thread. I received excited responses the following week from each of them!
The idea for the place cards sprouted from the realization that I over-bought certain materials for the invitations. I created a
document in Adobe Illustrator with each guests name and their table number. I printed this out on a sheet of cotton twill (yes, fabric sheets that you can run through your home printer!) and then tore the fabric to create frayed edges on each place card. And for the finishing touch, an iridescent button was attached to each fabric card. After all of this, I still had extra buttons, which I decided to scatter on the place card table.
