Custom Wedding Invites by chasing-butterflies Custom Wedding Invites by chasing-butterflies
Here's a preview of the custom wedding invitations that I've been so busy working on the last six weeks! By the way, I'm open for another invite commission...

All supplies were purchased from local craft and office supply stores. All floral design brushes and map work were custom made by me. And of course, I cut, glued, printed, etc. everything myself. The font was from dafont.com.

The couple is to be married on an overlook in a wildlife prairie park and were going for a casual-contemporary style with a nature theme.

The invitations were also to incorporate the various colors of the wedding: grey-blue (bridesmaids dresses), chocolate brown (men's tuxes), celery green (accent color), and antique white (bridal gown). We managed to get every one of the colors into the invite!

Please forgive the poor color quality, my scanner is dying a painful death...the blurriness is deliberate as I didn't want too much private information showing.

Check out the coordinating Thank You Cards [link]

Just ran across your work by accident, and I'm glad I did! These invitations are fantastic! I really love the color scheme - you did a great job of matching papers to the printed floral paper, everything ties together really beautifully.

I've been to that park before! I never thought of having a wedding there, but I'd bet it makes a beautiful location depending on the season.

Thanks so much! It was a really beautiful location - the couple did a great job with the colors and theme, I was really impressed. But you know, I think they were one of the last weddings that took place there because of budget cuts they don't do weddings anymore - at least that's what I heard :-(
