When you have a graphic designer/artist best friend, wedding planning just goes differently. Everything seems like an option.
From the brides perspective – You want that custom lettered 8 foot chalk sign. Coming up. Hand painted window panes resting in all the trees, no problem. Custom head-table backdrop fit for an anthropologie store window. Sure, add it to the list. For a bride with a ‘the sky’s the limit’ attitude, this is a fantastic spot to be in. For the graphic designer friend, the challenge became how to reign my friend in and find the focus without stepping on her wedding planning dreams, all while maintaining her benchmark of ‘must fit into Martha Stewart Weddings’.
As Lindsey, the bride, would frantically shuffle through magazines and blogs… an enormous list of ’ideas to do’ grew. Father of the Bride (in her mind) or Nancy Meyers (in mine) quickly became the epitome of what perfection was in regards to her wedding. With an arsenal of suppliers and industry insight in my back pocket, we created her and her lawyer husband’s ideal invitation.
Texture was the name of the game. It, and a colour palette, would make sense of the growing task list cohesive.
