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.
dum dum dum di dum dum.
Oh, right you're back! 
Ok so here we go then.
Save the Date cards.
Invites, complete with RSVP cards and a little poem from the Bride and Groom.

Evening Invitations & RSVPs

Order of Service
Now at this point I have to say a very big thank you to one very special lady.
Ali at Crafty Ribbons - darling you saved my life!!
I desperately needed ribbon, narrow ribbon for the Order of Service.
I emailed Ali and told her what I wanted - then totally confused her by putting another order in so what did she do?? She only rang me to ask me directly what I actually needed.  The ribbon was here the next day - Ali you truly are something special sweetie, thank you from the bottom of my heart. 
Table Numbers 
(& place cards but forgot to take a pic, DOH!)
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.
There was a black card backing, I rounded the edges and there were double little diamante hearts in each corner.  It looked lovely when it was all completed.  Again I used the Silhouette to cut out the wording - can you imagine cutting that out with scissors!! I don't think so! Lol
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:
