Our wedding: handmade rustic wedding stationery with red and white string and luggage tags
Charlie / 27 June 2011
Like our ‘save the date’ cards, we also made all our wedding stationery. There was an invitation, a booklet of wedding details, a RSVP postcard, and a gift envelope. Everything was tied up together with red and white string with a tiny brown luggage tag onto which I hand-stamped our RSVP date.
I’m one of those people (I hope there are others out there!) who knows in my mind what I want something to look like, but don’t always know how to translate that into reality. So although here you can see lovely photos of the finished invitation set, it took a lot of attempts to get them ‘right’.
All these beautiful photos are taken by the fab man who snapped our wedding photos – Mark Tattersall.
Full details on how we made them to follow shortly! And would love to know your thoughts – anyone else as much a fan of brown card as I am?
Check back tomorrow for Part 1 of the ‘do it yourself’ series!
