My Friends Wedding

Ok, I'm a little slow at getting things on here (the wedding was last summer : ). But at least I've finally managed to get these pictures up.
As I was a bridesmaid to my very dear friend, (whom I have know since primary school) it was put upon me to deal with the invitations, though she had input to the design and we had a team work effort with another of the bridesmaids to help produce all 60 invitations.
The invitation:
Closed with white satin ribbon. Embellished mini silver brads & rhinestone brad, on Tempting Turquoise Butterflies (Beautiful Wings Embosslits) spritzed with white frost shimmer.
Silver Embossed stamps from Baroque Motifs & Wedding Sweet, on white Vellum, mounted on Tempting Turquoise Card stock, mounted on Brushed Silver card stock, mounted on white card stock.
Side punched with Scallop Trim Border Punch.
Opened one side to reveal Bird Cage poem tucked into the pocket on the left.
Pocket is stamps with Baroque Motifs & embossed with Tempting Turquoise powder.
Silver embossed stamp cut out with Labels Collection Framelit on the right.
Opened on both sides, revealing R.S.V.P. in the pocket on the right.
Main information printed onto white card stock and attached to invitation with a mini silver brad.

Flipping the piece of white card stock up to reveal more information (about organised transport), printed onto Tempting Turquoise card stock.

This is the wedding card I made to give my friend on her big day.
I kept all the colours the same as the invitations to match (White, Vellum & Tempting Turquoise card stock) although I've used Silver Glimmer Paper instead of Brushed Silver here.
Stamps: Baroque Motifs, Perfectly Penned, Papillon Potpourri.
Embossing powders: Silver & Temping Turquoise.

The butterflies have embossed with Tempting Turquoise on white Vellum before being punched out with the Elegant Butterfly &...

the Bitty Butterfly.

I used pastels on the envelope to create a softer look.

My friend decided to go with the bag-a-lope as her bonbonniere.
All elements matching invitations of course.

Filling the bonbonnieres: With sugared almond of course.
We used Adorning Accents Edgelits to cut strips of blue & white tissue paper to help fill the bag-a-lope. We also dropped a few heart shaped chocolates wrapped in silver & blue foil with their names on them into the bag-a-lope.
Again this project had a team work effort to get it done.

Table centre pieces.
You always hope people appreciate the effort that goes into these projects when there are so many to make.
Packing the majority of the table dressings.
(I never got any decent pictures of the bridal table decorations).
