Erika's Bridal Shower

I've been dying to share this recent invitation design for a Bridal Shower that took place in nice that BeeCustom Design is slowly reaching beyond the boundaries of Massachusetts! I first have to thank Jennifer Hansen of Gracious Events Management for recommending me to her client. Sister and MOH Kristen put so much time and thought into planning her sister's bridal shower....there was no detail left out. The color palette consisted of a range of soft pinks and the card stocks used throughout this design are seriously becoming one of my favorite combinations. The colors are soft and subtle but the card stocks themselves all have stunning textures to them so when paired together it truly gives a rich feel. The design started with a large square backer called seashell, a shimmery accent backer called cameo and the invite was printed on diamond. I used a stylish wedding dress on a hanger which was then hand embellished with glitter. The envelope, a very soft pale shimmery pink had each guests address custom printed to match the look of the invitation.

Kristen wanted each guest to bring their favorite recipe for a book she was making for her sister. The card would be included with the invitation so I created one that coordinated with the overall design. All the table numbers were glittered to add an extra pop on the tables. Kristen wanted to give her sister matching stationery to use for her thank you notes; I used the glittered dress on a folded card in diamond and then paired it with a petal pink envelope. All of the guests place cards were attached to a matching wedding dress cookie designed by Becky Breslin. I know I say this a lot but "DETAILS MATTER" and this design is a perfect example of that!
