first thing is the details card. we used a vintage postcard of the venue to create a mailer for all of the guests. it included the details for shuttles and pre-wedding celebrations.
the escort tags... hand calligraphed on crane lettra, each was given a splash of blush on the end of the tag and tied with the same linen twine used on the invitation.
we used some pretty aluminum pushpins to hang each tag on our custom raw linen covered board.
for the table numbers, we used the same format as the invitation reply. each was blind letterpressed with the frame. this time, we handpainted each photo corner and table numeral.
the programs we designed used the same format as the escort tags, only larger. the back of each oversized tag was letterpress printed with my peony illustration in blush and a faux hole reinforcer was handpainted on the back of each large tag. the front of each of the three tags was printed with the ceremony information. the trio was strung with the linen twine and tied with a knot to hang on the ceremony chairs.
the couple has a sweet dog that they wanted to include in their wedding celebration. to do so, each guest was given a card with a note stating their love for their dog and including information to the shelters they donated to in honor of their wedding. carmella's photo was printed and applied to each square card. the text on the reverse of the card was simple, and inserted into a square envelope and tied with linen twine.
the menu was letterpress printed with the couples monogram at the top, and below, all of the deliciousness to come. a blind press of the peony illustration subtly graced the bottom of each menu.
one of my favorite details was the cigar bands... the newlyweds had a cigar roller on site to roll cigars for the guests. so naturally you need the perfect cigar band to wrap around. we letterpressed the couples initials and added traditional cigar band embellishments in foiled gold.
