Last Friday I sent my blog article to Pam DuVal at Promised Hearts Event Planning. She asked me to write about how I started to design wedding invitations and where I get my inspiration.
It lead me to think about how unfortunately, wedding invitations are generally looked at as a way to set the tone for a wedding, but I am strongly convinced that there is more that should be considered.
In my perspective, if a wedding invitation set is done right, it should be considered a keepsake. Isn't there merit in timeless design and the difference between art and ordinary?
Think about BridalTweet member: Karen Wall Garrison's work, yes, she portrays the tone of the wedding through color, but it is the brush strokes that truly portray the romanticism and excitement of the event.
My Question to each of you is:
#1) Think of how many run-of-the mill invitations you personally have thrown-out, which one's have you kept and why? Is it worth it in today's economy to save money on a cheap invitation set (example $300.00--if it ultimately gets thrown-away?)
Here's how I view the invitation process, I would love to have some feedback: http://2promisedhearts.blogspot.com/
I received another request (just today) from Percy Sales Events to write an article about trends for wedding invitations. This will be so cool...I already have all of my trend research, I just need to define and funnel down the categories so they are relevant to wedding invitations.
If you are interested, the trend article will be posted next Friday to: http://networkedblogs.com/p7599750?ref=mf
