You are in for a treat today! Today’s post starts to highlight some of the Hand-Painted Weddings stationery by yours truly! I had so much fun with designing this paper because a truly painterly touch was the perfect detail to bring together a modern art gallery wedding. I used long, loose brush strokes combined with graceful calligraphy in the paper.
As you can see in photo 3 as well as in the Gallery Paint Brushed Invitation in the Hand-Painted Weddings shop, the design kept true to the idea of old and new with the unique change in venue from ceremony to reception. The invitation for the ceremony, which was held in the ornate, historical PAFA building used some of the fine geometric details from the interior of the building. While the reception card, RSVP, and reception signs and escort cards were modern, wild and fun in appearance. This is also very fitting for the more daring short dress the bride is wearing at the reception.
One of my favorite touches are the escort card easel signs (bride and groom shown in photo 1). I love how fitting they are for the gallery theme, and how they look set up in front of each dinner plate. Sprinkling paint brushes is also a nice touch to bring together the painterly theme. The flower arrangements and the bouquets by Beautiful Blooms coordinate so well with this wedding and are truly gorgeous. There were even edible flowers in the entrÃƒÂ©e.
Another fun touch that I have created for some lucky couples is a signature drink card. I’ve seen some sad Word doc signature drink card signs at wedding bars and it really is a missed opportunity. Having a signature drink at your wedding is adding a little piece of attention, fun, and personality for your guests…why not make the sign they are going to read at the bar express that personality?
I hope you are enjoying Gallery Wedding week! I know I am!
