Wedding Photos: The table numbers

Here's the next installment of the stationery I created for our June wedding. Inspired by our amazing floral arrangements provided by The Watered Garden and our beautiful table furnishings from Mitchell's Catering, I took a cue from the varied greens to make double-sided table numbers with a pop of elegance. Using our wedding fonts Burgues Script and Bell MT, the table numbers added that extra touch of elegance.

These 14 table numbers are now on sale in our Etsy shop.

Wedding Photos: The escort cards

In the first installment of a series in which I'll show some of my favorite DIY projects from my own wedding, I'm starting with a photo of the escort cards I designed especially for this special occasion.

Using vintage images courtesy of The Graphics Fairy, I created one-of-a-kind escort cards for my guests. The cards were coded for the waitstaff so that they would know what meals to serve each guest: knife = beef, fork = chicken, spoon = vegetarian. Using my wedding theme fonts of Burgues Script and Bell MT, each card featured the guest's name, his/her table number, and the meal requested. With a special pearlized paper that can be printed on an inkjet and prefabricated placecards from LCI Paper, my girlfriends and I spent an early summer night slicing cardstock and assembling these with double-sided tape. I could not have been more proud of how they came out!

Stay tuned for more event pieces from my June 26 wedding!
