Scroll Design

I had some of the girls over to help replace the wine-colored tassels with pretty silver organza bows on all of the scrolls. They did a great job and we finished in no time! I’d probably still be tying bows if it weren’t for them.

Guestbook Inspiration

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2008

You’ve seen those photobooths at the weddings where they print off two copies of your goofy mugshots.
1) as a souvenir – sometimes a favor
2) for you to glue into a book

I love pictures so it made sense to do something similar; however, we were going to have a different kind of ‘photobooth’ setup with a photographer, so that idea was out. The typical photobooths were overplayed. I liked the new idea of high quality images.

Then I thought about it and realized I could morph that idea of interactivity with our guests in scrap messages that would later be combined into our wedding scrapbook.

I am going to make our guestbook by incorporating it into our 12 by 12 inch scrapbook. If guests flip through the book when they get to the party, the first several pages will incorporate anything wedding-related, i.e. showers, parties, planning, sweatshops. Then they can flip through and insert business card sized pieces of paper into pockets.

I love looking at scrapbooks and I doubt I’ll flip through some plain, blank book, so this makes sense. Our guests will be part of my documentation for the weddding!

Invitation Inspiration

Saturday, June 28th, 2008

I ordered a TON of sample invitations from several vendors. None of which satisfied our needs. The colors weren’t right. The designs didn’t suit the theme. They were too plain. They were too "like everything else". Then I stumbled upon Indian Wedding Card and we fell in love with the idea of having it formally announced on a scroll. This is the one we’ll probably start with:

Wedding Scroll

Most of their designs are ornate, so we’ll see! I will probably customize the colors and add a graphic of the dragon and phoenix to the scroll. Along with the scroll, I am making pocketfolds that will have all of the other information.

This won’t be anything too elaborate. It will be rather simple, but I plan to make VIP passes that go with the theme. At this point, we’re just going with black and white to capture the club-feel. They will be sent in a card to our friends.
