With this information, I went away and designed some ceremony seating cards. This would give an initial idea of a motif and script text that we could use throughout the rest of the stationery.
As well as ceremony seating cards, Emma wanted something to give her guests an idea of what will happen and when throughout the day. This was a civil ceremony, taking place at the venue where the wedding reception and evening celebration was being held, so an 'order of service' didn't really fit the bill. I then came up with the idea of a welcome card. A postcard size card with a front and back. Something for the guests to read as they take their seat ready for the ceremony.
Next we worked on how to present the tables for the wedding breakfast. Emma had decided to use numbers for each table but wanted them to be incorporated with a fact about the happy couple.
For each table we put a copy of the menu for the guests to see.
As well as some black butterfly table confetti, the only other extra, that I designed, was a folder to hold a lottery scratch card. These were the favours for each guest, and can be seen under the napkin in the photo below.
The whole room looked amazing.
It gave me immense satisfaction and it felt such a privilege to have been involved in someones special day doing something that I love.
