I was recently asked by Darling Weddings to create some wedding stationery for an ‘Autumn Picnic’ inspired wedding shoot they were putting together.
I was flattered and super excited to create something rustic and edgy. Julia and Victoria had a vision of plaid inspired stationery, keeping rustic colours in mind. Darling Weddings put together plaid blankets, vintage bicycles, a scotch bar, smore love, a popcorn bar,
fall flowers + pumpkins, and lots of pies!
The stationery was consistent with plaid borders, tree barque textured paper and fun calligraphy inspired fonts. Paper Panache created cute little pie tags with bright shimmer cardstock. We designed a large popcorn sign keeping the plaid theme and colours. For the scotch bar sign we hand drew our text on a mirror with a chalk board pen. This is tough to do, but looks great! We designed cute little bunting for the front of the bicycle, which looks great in photos. The favours were bags of “smore love”, with cute rustic tags attached with twine. The personalized menus would make any guest feel special, with custom names tied with twine on the top of each menu. The invitation set was a pocket style with monogram front, the main invite had a bold plaid border. The pocket is a great design for extra pieces like directions, accommodations and reply set as it keeps all the pieces neat and organized.
Thanks to everyone involved in this special project!
