Just when you thought you’ve seen it all, Lucy Loves Paper goes ahead and designs these cute portrait invites! And they shoot right up to the list of favorites, with the matching wall art soaring to the top of my own wish list. (What do you think — top knot or no top knot? I know… definitely, top knot.) Now, we’ve seen illustrated wedding invitations and the like before, but these are different: they’re actually easy to see and read (sometimes, illustrated invites become so detailed that the text gets hidden or overrun by flowers and it becomes harder and harder to read). These are pretty — and to-the-point — and in a neutral color palette to coordinate with many different themes. Read on to see how Lucy’s portrait wedding invites are clearly the next big thing…
Portrait Wedding Invites
First, let’s take a peek at the invites. On this suite, you’ll find “together with their families” and a handdrawn portrait of the couple. A hair accessory, hairstyle, facial hair, or glasses are just a few of the personal touches you can add. Underneath the portrait are the names, hand-lettered, along with the date, time, and location of your wedding.
On this second example, the RSVP card is shown with a simple “yes” changed to something more fun — “wouldn’t miss it for the world”. And, “no” sounds less, well, negative, with the gently worded, “celebrating from afar”. Love it.
Then we have the save the dates, essential for the couple who already has an invitation picked out (but wants an ultra-personal, quirky save the date).
And, last but not least, the wall art! Whether you display it at your ceremony or use as a makeshift guest book (order in a larger size and have guests sign around the illustration), it makes an awesome keepsake. I want one just because.
