When it came to our wedding cards, I was specific with what I wanted. I knew I wanted something feminine and masculine, dark and moody, modern and chic.
I searched the internet high and low for something that would catch my eye. When I see something I like, I know it immediately. And after hours of searching different websites, I couldn’t find anything I liked.
At this point, I knew I had to design my own wedding announcement card. Again, browsed Canva.com for hours before I found the perfect print. The second I saw it, I knew it was good.
I loved the dark, emerald green, and the texture it had. There were a few designs I played with before selecting this one, but once I had everything placed on this print, it was perfect. Exactly what I had in mind.
We wanted to send out these announcement cards to a few close people since we hadn’t invited anyone to our wedding (including our parents!)
I wanted to keep the card simple, with a few key photos from the day, and a short and sweet blurb.
The front said “We F*cking Did It!” – cheeky and very much us.
The back said:
One night, over one too many glasses of wine, we decided to end the year with a bang and get married! Three weeks later we booked Dec 31st, 2020 as our wedding date.
The ceremony was small but special to us and we’ll remember this day forever.
Love, Kim & Andrew
Once I designed the wedding cards, I headed over to Vistaprint.ca for the printing. I’ve always loved their prints for stationary. I’ve done many Chic Confidential marketing materials from them, so I knew they were a good choice for the printing.
They also let you upload your whole design. It took me less than 10 minutes to upload and send for printing on Vista Print, which I loved. Quick and efficient!
Once I uploaded the wedding card, I knew I wanted matching envelopes. I definitely did not want a plain, boring, white envelope. The whole thing need to tell a story and flow well. So I uploaded the print for matching envelopes, and also did envelope seals. I mean, why not, right?
It was the perfect little detail to seal the deal.
Once I sent them for printing, I was literally waiting at my door for them to arrive. And when they did, my GOD, I was so in love. It was exactly my vision – modern and chic.
For the envelope addresses, we used these gold and silver pens, which brought the whole look together.
Guys, I’m obsessed with how the turned out.
Anyway, because I’m a over-sharer and always want to share everything with you guys, I’m providing you the high-res PDF version of the print I used. If you’re anything like me, and can’t seem to find modern, chic, dark & moody cards, you can use this print and create your own. Just open it up and download it.
Anyway, totally obsessed with how these wedding cards turned out. Would love to know what you guys think? Are these your style? Let me know in the comments.
