keeping your guests in the know

I just finished working with a client whose wedding is in a couple weeks, and we rounded things out with a custom welcome packet. A welcome packet is a good idea if the majority of your guest list doesn't live where you are marrying as it can provide friends and family with a schedule of events for the weekend, directions to those events, as well as miscellaneous local attractions. This packet is amazing, and I would have loved to have been the recipient of something like this. We incorporated the couple's color palette of navy and charcoal with a navy pocketfold and coordinating outer envelope and printing in charcoal. We used the same font here as on the save the dates and invitations creating a sense of consistency, and rounded everything out with a custom wax seal. The pocketfold was then put in a coordinating navy envelope addressed in white ink with a grey return address.

  1. Saw you linked from, says you're coming to town Spring 2010. How nice. I was online to reorder Field Notes notebooks (the mixed- ruled/ blank/ graph packs) and the kids' version (neon colors!), the latter of which J.Crew now sells. I'd much rather support a local business. Please keep us posted on your appearances around Charlottesville. If you have a mailing list, feel free to add me: elisepps AT gmail DOT com
