Every once in a while, I receive a request to graphic design a custom wedding invitation. Below is one that I designed last week with my owl and pussycat paper doll illustrations. When I first got the request, I had to double check that they wanted the paper dolls as is. Yes, indeed they did. They wanted their guests to be able to cut them out and assemble my paper dolls.
They told me they were having a very unusual wedding where the guest were encouraged to wear vintage naval clothes and the wedding would take place on a ship like the Owl and the Pussycat poem by Edward Lear. It turned out this non-traditional wedding would be perfect with a non-traditional wedding invitation.
When I sent the proof of the wedding invitation to the the bride-to-be, she said she almost cried. I was happy to hear I could help her create a wonderful wedding that would be one-of-a-kind. It definitely is special when I receive these request to help with custom wedding cards. What do you imagine it would be like to receive an invitation like this to such an unusual wedding?
