I am getting married next year, and wanted to do something special to ask five of my good friends to be my bridesmaids. I decided to make hand lettered cards with a small gift that fits with the colors and accents of our upcoming wedding.
Cards: Paper Source in Mint
Envelopes: Paper Source in Coral
Glassine bags: Paper Source
I’m so happy with how these turned out, and my friends loved them. On the back of each card was a customized note, and the rings were sized for each person.
Coral and mint (and peach) are our wedding colors, and ampersands will be a reoccuring accent in the decor, so these worked well to start setting up the ‘theme’ of the wedding (although I’m not crazy about saying we have a ‘theme’—it’s more just things we like that represent us).
First DIY wedding project complete!
A couple weekends ago I went to the National Postal Museum for the first time, and loved seeing the vintage postage stamps and lettering—the images & type are amazing.
Definitely check it out if you’re in the area—the museum is right across the street from Union Station.
