This is the last in the Nuptial Nostalgia series (for now). If you missed the others, check them out here and here.
I like to think that I’m a
Jack Jane of all trades when it comes to design. I may not have skills perfected (at all), but I like to dabble in everything. When it comes to weddings, a few dormant sides of my personality get awakened.
First of all, there’s the stylist/event planner. I always forget about her, but she popped back up while with a friend on her first trip to try on wedding dresses. I felt like I was one of the consultants on Say Yes to the Dress- “try this one, I know you wouldn’t have grabbed it, but trust me.” (p.s. I was mostly right)
Another side of my personality that resurfaces with weddings is the graphic/stationary designer. It all started with my sister’s wedding in ’07 when I designed her invites. Then, I may have gone a little stationary crazy for my own wedding on ’09 (don’t you say a word B!). Despite my craziness, I am still SO proud of what I created for my old Hollywood/Theater themed wedding that I’m excited to share with you!
Save the Date Tickets:
Yeah, I know. I’m not the photographer in the family. I can barely figure out this camera most days.
Playbill Wedding Programs:
I don’t think I would change a single thing about any of my creations, especially the Playbill. I modeled it after an actual Playbill and I think I was able to make one that fit our personalities and wedding perfectly! I was beyond thrilled with everything about them from my custom silhouette front to the ‘cast’ bios and the history of our wedding site (not shown).
AND in lieu of a favor, with their thank you notes, the guests received this CD of the live swing band at our wedding. I tell myself at least a few of them actually listened to it at least once (hopefully).
What did I ever do before Photoshop and InDesign?!
If you want more info on how I created something specific, just ask.
