When I began discussing ideas for invitations, stationery and decor with my client, Kujuanna, I was instantly inspired by the love and relationship of the bride and groom to be. She was planning an “Old Fashion Love” bridal shower for her dear friend. We decided upon a Vintage Love theme in her color palette of black, white and red. Everything would be designed to be very romantic, intimate and warm.
The bridal shower invitations were designed as handwritten love letters! The concept involved a letter size invitation with a personalized letter to each of her guests detailing the new love her of her life and inviting them to her bridal shower. They were then enclosed in a paper belly band containing a love poem, and embellished with a tassel and wax seal with a double heart design. The letters were mailed in black envelopes with custom printed heart envelope liners and address band wrap.
For the day of the shower I designed coordinating game booklets, candy bag labels, candy table signs, welcome signage, cd favor labels (not pictured), placecards, thank you cards and a custom guest book.

Along with the paper I also helped her to conceptualize the event design which included lots of candle light, red rose centerpieces, red rose petals scattered through out and vellum wrapped cylinders. Here is a quick photo I captured with my phone to show the look and feel of the shower.
