It all started at a book launch party

by singlemomseeking on July 7, 2010

If you’ve ever gone to a wedding before, then surely you know what a traditional wedding invitation sounds like:

Mr. and Mrs. Tomas Smith
Mr. and Mrs. Frederick Langston
invite you to share in the joy
of the marriage uniting their
Eva Marie Smith
Patrick Everett Langston
on Saturday, the twelfth of April…

Um, so, that writing style is not really us. Although, as soon as that came out of my mouth, I DO see why folks would go for the traditional text. After all, it has already been written and is really to go. You don’t really have to think about what you might say differently. But as you know by now, I think. A lot. Too much sometimes.

So, that’s why our wedding invitations will begin with: “It all started at a book launch party… come and see the exciting conclusion!” (Did I mention that we can be super-cheesy, too?)

The Lucky Guy has a professional calligrapher in the family, and I’m so grateful for that. But here’s what I really need some help with: our invitation design.

My mind tends to think in words and phrases. But images? Not so much. I’ve leaned on all of you — my readers — for years now. And that hasn’t changed. So, that’s why… I’d love to hear your design ideas for the wedding invitation! Thank you!!

I’m so thrilled that is hosting this contest. They print on high-quality matte recycled cardstock and ship within two business days. So far, I’ve ordered both photo cards and thank you cards from them.

I’ll pick one winner via, who will win a $50 gift certificate from!

Don’t you love the colors in this wedding invite?

And the painting on this Paper Loop card makes me turn my head (although I’m going veil-less!):
