‘Til Death Do Us Part – our wedding invitations

April 9, 2010

My fiance is a rather talented chap indeed.  These are our home-made wedding invites, which he designed.  We then got rubber stamps made of the designs, from Blade Rubber, as we like the vintagey, slightly-worn-out look of stamped designs – and we’ll have these for the rest of our lives, so pretty handy, really. And cost effective. We took inspiration from Angelique Houtkamp for the lady kissing the dead man.  You can’t tell from these photos but it fits with the ‘Til Death Do Us Part’ at the bottom of the invite.

I spent quite a few hours  swearing and ripping up random bits of paper in a rage applying the Swarovski crystals  to them (fuschia and blue zircon satin) and punching out the hearts in the corners.  Some parts remain obscured in the photos since I don’t want a bunch of randoms off the internet turning up to our wedding or putting dog crap/fireworks through our letter box – although why you would do that is anyone’s guess. Er, not that anyone has done that, anyway.

    Any chance you’ll repost the pictures?

    OMG!!! Where did you get the template for your stamps of your initials and the woman kissing the dead man? That would go great with my theme for my wedding of next year. Would it be possible to email me where you got those templates? Thank you

      My husband is a graphic designer, so they’re his designs (from scratch, essentially). The woman and skeleton are based on a tattoo design by Angeline Houtkamp.
