You might expect, as our big day draws ever-closer *mini dance* that I’d have lots of Our Story posts, but over the past while they’ve been a little slim on the ground. This all changes today though, when I get to share with you something that I’m very excited about – our invitations!
Aren’t they awesome! I am so delighted with the way they turned out especially as it was a collaborative effort between myself (on design), Mr Joy (on spellcheck) and the wonderful White Tea Photography doing what they do best (more on that to come when I blog about our engagement shoot with them – which is where the pics came from).
Well Mr Joy and I both work in a newspaper so we wanted to incorporate that at some point into our wedding plans, but we also wanted to give it a quirky twist. After a Mad Men season too many, we are both obsessed with retro style, especially 50s modern and that inspired the design of the invites.
We put in quirky touches like Personal Ads (each seeking each other)…
As well as an arty map to the venues.
And our favourite part? A comic strip! But you’ll have to wait for the full Engagement Session post for that one…
