Fun With Skype and Wedding Invitations


Last night, Cobalt and I had the pleasure of Skyping with our friend T, who we have asked to design our wedding invitations. A few weeks ago, Cobalt and I sat down and made rough sketches of what we would want to see in our invitations – paper size, colors, wording, what the RSVP cards would look like, borders, drawings, etc. I drew it all up with my Wacom tablet and e-mailed them to T. So last night, she had them all open on her computer and we worked together so that she could have a better idea of what we were thinking. It was kind of a fun experience with her drawing away on her Wacom tablet and us watching via the “Share screen” option on Skype. We would pick part of the invitation, she would ask us a little about what we were thinking, and then she would go to work. It was sooooo cool to watch everything unfold. I am so incredibly excited for the way everything turns out. I think it is going to be amazing. Thanks T for being awesome!!!

Cobalt and I are super excited about how personal our invitations are going to be. How do you guys feel about invitations? Do you like super fancy frilly ones? Simple ones that just give the information? Something in between? Something with maybe… sharks? on them?

Also, Happy Pi Day! From me to you… Go get some pie! :D

  1. I have to say I like tradition for myself when it comes to wedding invitations. ….no particular reason. I guess I just like the look of them.

  2. We wanted something that had a sort of traditional feel to them, without being traditional at all. Ours have some good color, and they look nice because of the font choices and format, but when you start actually reading it, it’s definitely more…us.

  3. We’re trying to stay away from anything too traditional and formal because 1) they’re freaking expensive, 2) we aren’t really traditional people, and 3) we’re basically having a short ceremony followed by a kegger (and maybe tacos!), so we don’t want to give people the wrong idea about the wedding. We had Doctor Who save the dates, so I don’t think anyone will be too surprised if our actual invitations are less than traditional. I actually posted about some of my ideas in my last blog post http://ariella42.wordpress.com/2012/03/14/send-save-the-dates-check/
