Recent Work / T & N Wedding: Day of Stationery

I'm excited to share the second part of the pieces I designed for my sister's wedding a few months ago - the day of stationery! While I've designed a handful of wedding invitation suites in the past, this was my first time designing every stationery aspect for a wedding from the invitations to the favor tags and everything in-between. The day of stationery included the wedding program, menu, and favor tag. Designing all aspects of the stationery ensured that the event felt cohesive and, most importantly, like a reflection of the couple.

Working with my sister & her now-husband to pull all the pieces together was perfect since there were many times that silly brainstorm ideas turned into experiments that turned into reality. The best example of this was with the wedding pop-up programs, which came to be over dinner & quick design review session. Modeled after a traditional pop-up card, I designed the program to feature a pop-up of the couple surrounded by bridal party information and agenda for the day. I loved the unexpected, fun twist to the simple program and I think guests were surprised by it too!

I designed a simple "thank tag" for the couple's mini soy candle favors by the amazing Lighten Up Shoppe. For the tag, I went with a navy background that popped against the white exterior of the candle jar and were then completed with a navy baker's twine.

Lastly, the menus were designed at an elegant vertical size that tucked into the napkin of each place setting. As a twist to the menus, we added a "mad-lib" style form on the back for guests to complete for the bride & groom. Overall, I love the way everything turned out and it was amazing to see it all come to life on their wedding day!
