Wedding Crashers!

In yesterdays post, I showed you all Jenna & Jon's invitation package. Today I'm posting their wedding crasher cards. What an adorable idea, right? Due to space limitations during the reception's dinner, they weren't able to invite all of their friends. So what better idea to have all of your friend's come and crash the after party! Each of these ticket shaped crasher cards were personally handed out to friends inviting them to come to the after party. So adorable.

If you'd like to make your own, Thoughtful Day designed a bunch of cute stamps for Martha Stewart Weddings that are available to download here. Below are a few of the stamps. Have fun!

Don't forget to check out 100 Layer Cakes amazing post of Jenna and Jon's wedding. It truly was the wedding and party of the year!

Thoughtful Day in Martha Stewart Weddings!

I've been waiting for well over a year now to show these invites I designed for my good friends, Jenna & Jon. Jenna of Love Jenna Calligraphy, and I went to art school way back and have known each other for 10 years! As you can imagine, I was beyond honored when they asked me to design their invitation suite. Being the creative couple they are, Jenna sent me tons of beautiful inspiration, ranging from images of Marie Antoinette to photos of Coney Island. Jon, a very talented copy writer, wrote all of the copy throughout the suite.

I know Jenna pretty well, so when she approached me, I knew there had to be layers and layers of stuff to make up the package. I hunted far & wide for the candy striped bags way back, which thankfully are easier to come by now. Custom designed tickets were then wrapped around the bags, tied by gold cord. All of the illustrations throughout the suite were illustrated by Thoughtful Day. We don't use clip art around here for custom invites! Not only are these invites super fun, but they were printed with some of the finest methods available - Gold foil stamping combined with pink Letterpress all backed with vintage wallpaper. It's hard to get more luxurious (and awesome) than that when it comes to an invitation suite. Needless to say, Jenna & Jon were the dream clients!

And to top it all off, the invitations made their way into the current Martha Stewart Weddings out on stands now. Wait until you see all of the photos of Jenna & Jon's wedding. It was absolutely fabulous & full of love, and I'll be forever grateful that Thoughtful Day was asked to be a part of it.

100 Layer Cake will be posting more photos of Jenna & Jon's wedding the rest of the week, wait until you see all of the details!
