I wanted to show you guys our invitations because we're so excited about them! We knew we wanted to do something "different" but we didn't really know what, until the idea hit me one day. It makes sense because both Matie and I are huuuuge music lovers and we go to tons of concerts. As soon as I suggested the idea to him he was REALLY excited (and not much about the planning excites him!). We started working on them months and months ago (we went through a company here who specializes in concert posters) and we finally agreed on the design and had them printed in March. I think they turned out even better than we could have imagined!

 

Our colours are grey, blush, and black, but for the poster we decided to make the grey metallic (so it's actually silver) just because it made it look higher quality. Our theme is "retro-glam." We didn't need to put a ton of information on them as we already have all of the details on our website. We also asked guests to RSVP to the website so we didn't have to include response cards.

 

Here is the poster:

I held it up to Nixon so you can see how big the poster is. It's 12x18. The quality of this pic isn't great but you get the idea!

I rolled the poster up and put a ribbon around it with a piece of cardstock with the guest's name on it. We hand delivered most of them like this.

We tried to hand deliver as many as we could as they are crazy expensive to mail, but we still had to mail some of them. We put them in poster tubes and I printed address labels in the same font as I used on the cardstock.

 

That's it! Hope you guys like them as much as we do! cheesy.gif

Heather what a awesome idea! I never would have thought of posters in a million years! But its something that can be "put up" as a reminder too and not just a card thrown in a junk mail pile (or stuck to a plate under our best man's coffee table).

 

Love it!

Very unique -- and they look great.

 

It's always nice when you can find some aspect of the wedding planning that FI is *really* excited about!

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
    • Hi all. My fiance and I are getting married at Dreams Los Cabos in Cabo San Lucas on April, 2021! We've been together for 3 years and we are so excited for our little wedding!
