This is the perfect example of why I am so in love with stationery and all things paper. The right paper suite can bring that element of chic and charm to every detail.

From Anne, the gorgeous bride…
I designed and produced everything. This was a long process since designing for yourself allows you way too much freedom which enables you to constantly change your mind. The following are the stationery details of the wedding:
Church Programs: I designed and printed on my offset printer and had John’s grandmother sew the inside pages since I didn’t have a sewing machine.
Escort Cards: I used a love letter instead of a number. I also loved the illustration of the humming birds and how that coexisted with the garden theme. Thus, I decided to use them as love birds humming around love letters:) I used the hydrangea illustration from my invite as the background of each escort card and printed them off my offset printer. I also used price tags from staples and stamped the table letter on it and then attached it to the card with rafia.
Escort Board: This was created by my crafty husband. (I wouldn’t have been able to do everything without his help). We went to Michael’s art store and picked up a Frame and foam core. He went to town with the silver spray paint and painted the frame and then roughed it up a bit to create a distressed older look. Then he attached green canvas fabric that we had to the foam core with spray mount. Lastly, he mounted it to the back of the frame.
Polaroid for Guests: This was awesome. Guests came in and picked up their escort card and then took a candid shot of themselves with the help of another guest and then slipped it in an envelope and signed it.
Table Numbers: These were wrapped around two chairs at each table. I printed the table letter off of my printer and then used double sided tape to attach it to the green paper. Then I placed a grommet through the top and the bottom of the circle and finally I placed the ribbon through it.
