I was recently contacted by two different couples looking for Paris Wedding Invitations. Even though neither of them were actually getting married in France they wanted to add a French theme to their wedding stationery.
Melissa and Kevin were actually getting married in Maui, Hawaii but only inviting close family and friends. They were then planning a Paris themed reception party when they returned and needed invitations to share with their friends and family. They wanted to keep a travel theme to their stationery so opted for a passport design.
I started by creating the custom cover for their passport invitation using an illustration of the Eiffel Tower. Melissa and Kevin wanted the overall look to be an authentic passport so opted for a classic navy and gold colour combination. The finished result was lovely and a classic monogram of their initials and wedding date on the back finished the invitations off beautifully.
After the finished invitations were shipped to Canada I received this lovely email from the happy couple:
Hiba and David were also planning a Paris themed wedding and reception for their celebration in London. Two beautiful photos of Paris at night were the perfect backdrop for their Airline Ticket Invitations.
After the invitations were complete Hiba decided she would also like to work on some Postcard Thank You Cards to continue the theme. I used a great shot of the Notre Dame Cathedral for the front and incorporated a monogram and some passport stamps on the back. Where the address would be written on a real postcard I included a lovely quote Hiba had found:
"Know the true nature of your Beloved.
In His loving eyes, your every thought, word and movement is always - always beautiful."
