Wedding Commission!

Hi all,
Just popped in to show you what I was working on before Christmas.
I was asked to do all the stationery for a friend's wedding and of course I couldn't say no now could I??
Well, what started out as a reasonably easy job became quite involved.
So this post is a bit pic heavy so if you fancy grabbing a cuppa before we start, I will wait for you.

Used my Silhouette for these - so much easier than cutting out by hand!
Post Box.

Table Plan
Now unfortunately I didn't take a picture of the finished item.

I also made a little box with one of everything in for the Bride to keep.
(Would definitely offer that as a little extra for any Bride I think)
So there you go, my latest Wedding Commission.
I am going to enter this commission into the following challenges:
