custom made / anniversary party invitations



my most recent design work was a surprise for the honored guests, my parents-in-law. the family is hosting a celebration to honor their mom and dad's fiftieth wedding anniversary. i was delighted (if not a bit intimidated) to create the invitations. i went with a classic, simple design as they are two of the classiest i've ever met. we printed them on the heaviest ivory stock around; which turned out lovely for an extra special event. my father-in-law especially loved that it was a flat two-sided invite (no fussing with additional inserts). am glad i resisted the urge to round the corners and i love how the photo bleeds off the edge. oh the details that make a graphic designer happy.

p.s. don't let those expressions fool you, they were madly in love and still are. isn't that full wedding gown and chic hat w/ veil so gorgeous?! and what about the dapper bow tie and glasses?!

It's gorgeous, Marta.
I love vintage pictures. I just recently designed an invitation for my mom's 60th birthday with an old picture of her.

I love those old pictures. What a great idea. I think I might have to steal it for a family reunion we're having this summer. :)

When Tim and I have our 50th, I hope someone makes invitations just like this for our party. (Only 34 years to go!) They're lovely.
