This month we are excited to share Brittany’s invitations with you! Brittany came into Ann Elizabeth with a fairly detailed idea of what type of message and feeling she wanted her invitations to convey. As we met with Brittany she conveyed to use that she was after a style that was classy and elegant with an outdoorsy feel. Brittany knew she wanted to have a copper as one of her colors for the invitation because of the history of the copper mines in Butte, Montana near the location of their wedding. We paired the copper with a navy blue and toned it down to give it both a masculine and feminine element. Our invitation consultant Ruth Sorenson sat down with Brittany to get her take on the invitation process. Below are some of the highlights from Brittany’s recent interview.
Brittany: Definitely! All the options I was given at the beginning helped a lot... I liked being able to say I like this one, not that one and seeing the additional ideas you came up with it made it super easy to figure out what I wanted. Then we were able to go back to the design that I liked the best and make some minor tweaks. It just made it so easy.
Ruth: Are there any elements of the invitations you had positive feedback on?
Brittany: The whole thing! Everyone absolutely loved the colors and said it was different from anything they had seen before. It was unique, I wasn’t just your typical invitations and I love that the color combo was warm and inviting.
Ruth: Did you take any elements from the invitation into your wedding?
Brittany: Well actually I did the reverse and brought elements from my wedding into my invitations with the help of you guys! Mostly the colors, but also the branches and the leaves from the centerpieces I planned for the wedding - the nature elements all tied in together so well!
I’m also really glad that I had you guys do programs and wine bottle labels for me. It really tied things all together and the consistency on the wedding day wouldn’t have been the same without those details.
