The Dilemma of a Well-designed Wedding

The wedding countdown (not that I’m keeping track) has reached less than a month – 25 short days until I tie the knot, get hitched, jump the broom (insert your favorite wedding euphemism here).

Planning a wedding as a graphic designer is a unique ball game. When you mix an already established habit of overthinking visual details with a plethora of design potential, (not to mention a tendency to be harsh in design self-critique) it is a challenge to create pieces you’re happy with.

With all this in mind I embarked on the challenge of designing my wedding save the dates and invitations. I knew I wanted to incorporate hand-lettering and a hand-painted aesthetic, but pinpointing a design I was happy with was trickier than I thought. But after sketching, scrapping, and solution-finding, they are done! Here’s a look at the final result.
