This was probably the most fun wedding I’ve ever designed to, and possibly attended too! The bride is a good friend of mine and fellow creative, so I got to go a little crazier than usual with their invitation concept. She came to me with a couple ideas. One was to make their wedding day sound like an event (in a funny way) and call it “THE WEDDING.” The other was idea was to go totally casual, simple and completely understated. So what did I do? The complete opposite! Well kind of. I took the concept of “THE WEDDING” and blew it up to be a funny wedding extravaganza to the point of ridiculous. The original design included stretch hummers, fireworks, doves and cannons. You can view it here. We decided to personalize it a bit more though and included palm trees and kebobs to touch on their wedding location and Persian culture. It was also the couple’s idea to have their little heads being shot off the cake by canons. Nice touch! The end result is above – a black and white screenprint on chipboard, a bright sherbert envelope and cannon address label.
That would be a GIANT wedding certificate (and giant pen) they signed at the alter.
My favorite picture of the night- the last one!
