Elizabeth's Invitations, Cards, and Favors!

Fiona and I are two of the bridesmaids for our friend Elizabeth, who is getting married next weekend at the Westin! She had a whirlwind and fairy tale type of romance with her fiance, Peter, dating for only 6 months before the proposal, and then getting married within a year. I guess what people say is true, when you know, you just know! I had the privilege of designing some of the paper products for her bridal shower and bachelorette party. Below are some of the invitations, cards, and favors from her pre-wedding events.

The bachelorette party invitations had a fun and curly font, with a martini glass to give it some color, rounded corners, and a hand glittered sugar rim. I love it when you can feel some texture on paper. There were two different versions of the bachelorette party invitation, one for the guests, and one for the bride-to-be! We wanted to keep the night's festivities as a surprise, so you'll notice that all of the locations on Elizabeth's invitation are very vague, like "somewhere in Massachusetts", and "dinner at yummy restaurant".

This is a personalized card that I made for Elizabeth. It's a bridal shower of flowers! I outlined the umbrella in some glitter to again give the card some texture and shimmer.

The bridal shower favors were heart shaped luggage tags. Before, they were packaged in a clear plastic heart box, with the insert showing a small form like Name, Address, etc. By request of the bride to make it look a little more lively, I removed the plastic heart box, tied a pink ribbon diagonally through the velvet black packaging, and created a new insert for the luggage tag. Elizabeth liked the quote "love is in the air", so I added that on the top, along with a little airplane icon. I also added the names of the bride and groom, and the bridal shower date with some flourishes.

It was a lot of fun to work on all of these paper products. If you need custom invitations or a personalized card made, just email me at
