Nearly a week ago, we finally finished and sent off our invitations. Since I'd blogged a lot about our decisions along the way, I wanted to show them off on our blog - with all of the identifying information removed, of course.
I made these myself in Adobe Photoshop. The invitation is from an old (1960s or 1970s) photograph I have of two swans (you get 3 guesses why the swans...):
The reception insert is made using a 1920s painting, "Where There's Smoke There's Fire" by Russell Patterson. I absolutely love the dress and the dainty cigarette holder!
Just after we finished these, another bride-to-be who's planning a 1920s wedding emailed me. She sent me an example of her 1920s-style invitations, and agreed to let me post it on my blog.
Her invitation is admittedly more 1920s-looking than my main invitation (although I think I made up for it with my reception inserts). However, a swan theme in my wedding has always been a certainty, which is of course the reason for the swan photo on the invitations.
