[custom design] Vintage themed wedding & party Ticket invites

vintage wedding invites with rsvp stub

Wow, time is flying by! I was first asked to custom design a vintage film ticket invitation for Trisha & Tony‘s wedding in 2011. Luckily, based on each new clients theme, this unique invite suite has been personalized many times over!

For example, I’ve updated the design to work as a single invite card only (vs. the full suite w/tear-off RSVP postcard & map card), along with a new style that includes a perforated tear-off RSVP STUB on the main invite.  There are also now smaller, miscellaneous event tickets available, plus ticket save the dates. And lastly, a fun Pop or Rock Star themed girls birthday party ticket.

This is truly what I love about my job…customizing all the details…it’s never the same. Time flies when you’re having fun! 😉

Have you heard about this new bridal show trend?

The Big Fake Wedding is a bridal show alternative complete with an emotional ceremony, a tasty dinner and a dance-party reception. “Wedding guests” are brides-and-grooms-to-be who get to truly experience the wedding vendors in action.

Well, I totally love the idea … and I’m super excited to announce that Papercake Designs is a 2015 featured vendor for the first San Francisco Big Fake Wedding (formerly known as The NotWedding).
