For those who are frequent readers of my blog, you will know how much I love a good invitation.
Friends of mine Tom and Scarlett were married in August this year, (blog about their wedding is coming soon) and they had some very creative invitations. I wanted to wait until the wedding had happened before I showed off the invitation so that nothing was omitted from these fantastic invites and you could see them in all their amazing, and some might say slightly nerdy, glory. Just my style!
Check out all of the great details even on the RSVP cards.
Now you can look forward to reading the blog about their beautiful wedding day.
Jim and Gemma’s wedding is coming up and I got the invite in the mail a while ago. I previously blogged about their save the date card, but the wedding invitations are just lovely. If you read my blog regularly you will know how much I love a good wedding invitation. I think they can be a great way to let people know the style or theme of the wedding, and just another way to let your personality shine through. You can see their save the date cards here.
These invitations are a fantastic example of this. Jim and Gemma are having there wedding out at Healesville Sanctuary. For those of you who don’t know Healesville Sanctuary is a zoo specialising in native Australian animals, which also has a history of breeding native animals. Jim and Gemma love the outdoors and animals and this is a great way for them to show this to all of the people that they have invited.
They have not only found some lovely invitations that reflect the style and theme, but they have put a lot of time into giving their guests all of the information that they may require for the day. They have guests travelling from all corners of the globe to share in their special day and they haven’t forgotten a thing on the information sheet. They have included a map, information about accommodation, information about a shuttle bus service that they have organised (due to unreliable taxi’s in the area), information about people bringing their kids, down to helpful information about comfortable shoes. They have also given guests information about a dinner the evening before and a brunch the day after for people planning to make a weekend of it all.

Courtney and Tim are getting married in November. They are not just having a Wedding but they are having a ‘Wedstival’, a wedding crossed with a festival. I have been following Courtney’s ideas on Pintrest and am loving talking about wedding things when we catch up. Not only does she have amazing ideas on her Pintrest but she had designed all of the wedding invitations herself. She did the illustrations for her save the date cards too. From the date cards, I knew that the invitations would be great.
Courtney is really artistic and has had work published in Frankie magazine on a regular basis, and now has her own Etsy store full of her beautiful illustrations. So when I got to see the invitations I wasn’t disappointed. I love opening an invitation that is an experience, not just beautiful. I hope the photos do them justice. I look forward to blogging all about their Wedstival and sharing their special day with you.
You can have Courtney make maps for any occasion, or contact her about any illustration work through her Etsy store. Check it out here.
