If you checked out yesterday’s blog post, then you know that it’s wedding anniversary week here at my house, and in honor of our sixth anniversary I’m sharing some of the ways that I’ve turned our wedding memories into décor that we can enjoy in our home on a daily basis.
Today’s post is a pretty simple idea, but one that I’m proud of nonetheless because it took me six years to finally accomplishing it. I framed our wedding invitation. I know, I know… framing our invitation shouldn’t have taken me six years, but in my defense, they only just started making the perfect frame, so it’s a good thing I waited so long!
So let’s start with the wedding invitation itself. I love graphic design, so I enjoyed designing all of the stationary for our wedding, including the save the date cards, the invitations, and the thank you cards. For the invitation, I really wanted to incorporate one of our engagement photos, so what I came up with was a layered presentation. In place of the standard inner envelope, we used a white pochette (a petal fold envelope). Within the pochette was the invitation itself, which had a piece a blue ribbon wrapped around it, and an engagement photo affixed to the ribbon. When the photo was in place all that could be seen of the invitation was the text at the top and bottom reading “The Wedding” and “Angela & Scott.” Once the ribbon with the photo was removed, the remainder of the invitation text was visible.
So just like that (six years later), we have a gorgeous frame with a double-sided display just perfect for our wedding invitation!
