I met Jennine over 10 years ago in highschool.  We quickly became great friends, and when she introduced me to her cousin in 1998… little did i know that i would eventully become a part of her family!  I married her cousin Chris in 2006 and Jennine stood up as one of my bridesmaids.

When I found out that Jennine and Trevor were tying the knot this summer (and that I was to be a bridesmaid) I was super excited!  I think I may be more excited about planning her wedding than she is! This isn’t to say though, that doing Jennine’s invitations and collateral hasn’t come without challenges…. Jennine is the inspiration for my earlier post about digital invitations.  Being a print person, it was hard for me to accept it when Jennine broke the news to me that doing conventional invitations just wasn’t in their budget (or timeframe)… but i took that challenge head on… and am proud to present the results!

Now, while these invitations may be low on price…they aren’t low on style!  Jennine found a great deal on some thank you cards on clearance at a store… which gave us the inspiration for our border design (refer back to my earlier post about making sure to coordinate all your pieces together). I then used a woodcut style illustration of a flowering vine to play off of the outdoor reception that they are hosting.

A few more important items that I was sure to include in these invitations:

1. I kept the size a traditional wedding invitation size (5×7).  That way if guests choose to print the invitations, they will still have the apprearance of a formal invite.

2. For the RSVP section, we not only included an email address, but we also left a phone number.  This will make it easier for their guests to get ahold of Jennine and Trevor.  Another great idea of something to include would be your website if you had one!
