Wedding: Invitation

First up, the invitation! My family is British, and Alex's ancestors are from Wales, so our wedding had a British/nautical theme. We asked the brilliantly talented Michael and Emma to design our invitations (remember their amazing wedding?) and they did an incredible job! We loved the handwritten type, patterned background, and beautiful ship and anchor. The invitation's shape recalled a 1960's concert poster, and we mailed them rolled up in little tubes. Thank you so much, M+E!

Love the wedding invitations!! They are so beautiful and unique. I love how the anchor is placed. Wonderful!

karen said...

Joanna do you speak with a British accent? I always imagined you with an American accent when I read your blog.

Joanna Goddard said...

haha, karen, nope -- we were born abroad, but grew up mostly in michigan, so i definitely have an american accent (although i can fake a good british! :) xoxo joanna

grace said...

WOW - that is the best wedding invitation I've come across in a while!, in Australian brides seem to stick to traditionally themed weddings, just beautiful Joanna!

Sammi said...

Your invitations are beautiful

SarasWeddingIdeas said...

That's a really creative wedding invitation and also helps set the tone. I think that when guests and family see that it automatically calms the nerves about "not another pretentious wedding" to attend.

I love these - what a unique, lovely invite.

I agree, for the most part, but don’t you feel as if the issue is more complex than that?
