Did you know that my company Fresh Look Event Management provides custom wedding invitations? YES we do! Before getting into the event planning business I decided that I wanted to create my own fashion magazine. I was going to design it and put the whole thing together myself… yes I was a little naive lol… Well after going to school and completing my program for Graphic Design I then decided that design was not for me. I was really good at doing anything girly like wedding invitations but give me a masculine football logo and I was bored. So I decided to get my practicum placement with a large food service company in their marketing department. I was still going to be designing but I also was going to be an event planner putting together large trade shows at venues such as Northlands. Long story short that placement introduced me to the event planning world and I was hooked.
Years later I am still designing but for my events and my company. Helping my clients create custom designs, invitations, stationary all that work with the decor of the event.
This invitation for Natasha & Perry I recently completed was a favourite for me. The floral images in the backdrop were painted by my Grandma in the colours that are being used for the wedding. She provided me with multiple images to choose from and the bride was able to pick her favourites which i then used on different pieces of the invite.

For multiple layer invitations there is a lot of cutting! Plus I am a bit of a perfectionist and like to challenge my invitation designs so of course I had to add plenty of beautiful layers.
My favorite is the reply cards. They seem silly and sometimes like a waste of money when you can just email your RSVP in but there is nothing like being the bride and opening each RSVP as they come in to get you excited about your upcoming day.
DINNER & DANCING
This was my favorite floral image!
I always love to use quotes. This was the brides favorite quote she picked. It is also a great image to be able to see the texture of the white paper we choose. A lovely linen to really emphasis that this was a painted image.
GLUEING & CUTTING COMPLETE !
This took me forever but as you can tell by all my photos of the process that I do really enjoy every single minute of it. Each portion of the invitation is beautiful but when you can look at it like this it makes it really special. Next was putting them all together!
If you are looking to have a custom designed invitation please contact me! Have a wonderful day!
