Things are starting to move!

Eeek! So this week I designed, printed and prepared our engagement / save the date announcements. That’s right, we doubled up – I’ve been reading up on etiquette and no one said that was a bad thing!

The pic above shows the initial illustration by Taynee Tinsley (more on Taynee soon), the rounded corner punch and the final announcement in a little bright pink envelope ready to be addressed.

I designed the announcement myself, typeset it and added the beautiful illustrations that Taynee has done for us. We just printed them on to white card stock to keep the costs low and the look classic. Punched the corners to be rounded and inserted them into brightly coloured envelopes from Paperchase. I wanted simple, fun, relaxed but chic.

These are due to be sent out this week. I’m just waiting for the registrar to confirm the date then IT WILL BE OFFICIAL!

We’re off to Berlin for a long weekend today so I’m hoping to catch some inspiration from the European bridal and party scene while I’m there. Auf wiedersehen!
