Photo by Ed & Aileen PhotographyWedding day paper includes menus, escort cards, ceremony programs, favor tags, thumbprint guestbooks, and other various signs such as dessert table signs, such as the macaroon sign above. As you can see, adding this little detail of custom paper to your wedding day brings the whole look of the event to another level.

The paper are the items your guests will be holding and using to navigate throughout your event, so it makes sense to give them the same attention you would for the invitation set. In fact, the wedding day paper items are also a way to carry the theme from the wedding invitations throughout the wedding.

In the case of the Alice in Wonderland wedding the detailed illustrations from the Alice in Wonderland wedding invitation set are not in the designs of the wedding day paper. Instead a colorful watercolor wash is used in the design to coordinate with the invitation but not be too matchy-matchy. One of my strengths as an artist is figuring out how to transition and grow a design into the coordinating designs so that they all feel like they are in the same family, but aren’t identical.

The Alice in Wonderland theme is really interesting because while there is the eclectic tea party aspect of the event, there is also this mystical haze throughout the forest Alice is wondering about. The watercolor wash is inspired by that haze. I just love this design, as you can tell. The team of vendors did such an amazing job designing the decor and the table settings. I love how all the details came together. It is really an inspiration, and I am so excited that other couples can use bits and pieces of this inspiration for their wedding days!

Inspired for Fall: Perfect Addition to Your Autumn Ceremony

August 21, 2014By AllisonHand-Painted Programs

Pumpkin Program by Hand-Painted Weddings

It has been a fairly mild summer in Philly this season, and even though it is still August, I already feel the first signs that autumn is right around the corner. I love autumn, but I’m making these last few weeks of summer count with trips to the water park, beach, and the many outdoor beer gardens that have popped up in Philly this summer.

In preparation for all the exciting autumn weddings that are right around the corner, I wanted to share these two lovely photos that were taken of the Hand-Painted Weddings Pumpkin ceremony program in action as well as a peek of the customized Pumpkin invitation framed in the basket at one of our fall 2013 clients’ wedding. It doesn’t get much more autumn-inspired than the pumpkin! This would be a perfect addition to any fall wedding.

Remember, if you are interested in customizing any of the hand-painted signature invitation suite designs into ceremony programs, please contact me. I’d be happy to provide more information!
