I always love when couples decide to make their programs more than just a program. And every free moment of these last few weeks have been filled with a project for N. and J.P. that did just that. They wanted the programs to be books of the beautiful Bahá’í quotes they filled their ceremony with. They also wanted a pocket in the back to hold a CD of their favorite songs that they put together as a wedding favor for their guests. And not only did they want to give this beautiful gift to their wedding guests, but they wanted to have enough of them to send to their friends and family who weren’t able to attend the wedding. The result: 250 personalized 18-page little books, bound with raffia, and with a CD pocket in the back.

I got to plunge into a pretty cool project this week, which I thought I’d share. Brookes, a bride in need, came to me after receiving a very delayed wedding invitation sample in the mail from an online company, and not feeling happy with it at all. We quickly kicked into gear, and managed to settle on a design, and finish the job in just a couple days. The wedding style is romantic and whimsical in white, purple and green. With this in mind, I designed the invites based on the strings of hanging orchids that will be featured in the ceremony. The RSVP card then hangs on an actual string, attached by a orchid cutout. The invitation-maker in me was definitely upset with the invitation-designer in me, for deciding that a rush project should involve 80 tiny orchid cutouts. But the designer part of my brain always wins, and in the end I am very happy with the results. And more importantly, so is Brookes.
