What happens when graphic designers need a vacation
I'm all for simple, classic, elegance but this wedding invitation might just take that concept a little too far. When I stumbled upon this at Borders over the weekend, I could almost hear the shotgun in the background.
A born problem solver, I instantly went into creating scenarios on how this plain jane and utterly boring folded card could possibly work. Maybe personalized handwritten notes....swap out the envelopes for something a bit more creative...print the invitation details on a whisper thin silver linen paper and insert it into the card...have a seal or monogram created to add to the front...use a heart or letter shaped hole punch...or just burn the entire pack and start from scratch. Regardless, it would take some work to make these remotely personal.
Your wedding is a big day. Take more than 5 minutes to choose an invitation that reflects you and your future spouse. There are interesting and affordable options out there if you're willing to roll up your sleeves and get a little crafty. However, if you do some soul searching and still feel that "WEDDING" on a folded white card is how you want to alert your nearest and dearest of your very special event, more power to you. They're available at Borders in packs of 8.
