our wedding: stationery galore

i've lost my blogging mojo. 

only one culprit - work! 

but [info]lemonster , here you go!

ok before i get stones thrown my way, i already know im an obsessed bride. all our guests share our last names .. but no, had to send formal invites that matches each theme and mail them out old-fashioned way... even daniel got an invite in cambodia! *sigh* anyway, intially i'd wanted to have the invites professionally designed but with my super low guest count, no one would do it for me. so DIY it was! :)

the morning theme is bright, sunny and fun!! these neat double sided invites came in the cutest envelopes with matching inserts.. printed them at bras basah so we could get them on 250 gsm paper.

i still working on the bride & groom chair, dessert buffet, name tags and thank you cards.. i love the dots.. makes me happy! :)

our evening invite bit more urm.. traditional, as requested by mum. this is the brainchild of my beloved parents. mum came up with the visuals and the concept and dad executed it.

did i mention my mum is fantastic with jewellery so when you unclasp the card, you will find that it actually doubles up as a pair of earrings. perfect gift for the ladies because we requested them to come dress in cheongsam finery! :) what i great idea..

pops also designed the map of our venue (at the back side of the card), its very pretty and well designed! then he came up with the genius idea to scan the lace we bought and create a motif.. so we can apply it to:

our menu card and place card! :) so love!!!
