Extra! Extra! Read all about it! A Newspaper Wedding Invitation!
When designing custom wedding invitations the most exciting part of the design process is when I get to learn about my bride and see if she’s a romantic bride, a sentimental bride, a daring bride or a comedic bride. And when I’m really luck, they’re an all-in-one bride, which was definitely the case for the design of this Newspaper Wedding Invitation.
Lindsay and Jos were to be married at Casa Romantica in San Clemente and wanted to bring in the old world romantic charm of the venue while also showing off an their hilarious sense of humor considering that they first met in a comedy club. And so the art nouveau style Romantica Times Newspaper was founded. We created a classic folded newspaper style invitation complete with various sections such to provide the guests with all of the important and fun details of their wedding to follow.
For the front page news we featured Lindsay and Jos in their dapper attire announcing the ‘merger’ that was to come.
Playing in tune with their comical blue blood style coverpage photo, we placed the actual invitation under the ‘Society’ section to invite their honored guests to this must attend event of the season.
Under the ‘Classifieds’ section Lindsay and Jos wrote personal ads describing the person that they seeked to find but had actually already found. Lindsay’s read lines such as “SWF Seeking: Must have a strong love of family and even stronger sense of humor. Chardonnay lover preferred. Knowledge of classic rock mandatory.” Some of Jos’s personal read “SWM Seeking: Must love laughing, family and Penn State football. Can adapt to emotional change in male due to sports addiction. Knowledge of 80’s music mandatory.” We also created a horoscope predicting the funny futures of the guest’s time at their wedding.
For even more hilarious anecdotes we created a two page “Funnies Section” with a jumbled word find, comic and crossword puzzle revealing hidden and hilarious secrets about the couple and details of the wedding.
On the last page of the newspaper we provided guests with a little helpful info such as the “Weather” section to predict to aide in outfit selection and “Travel” section with direction and hotel review information.
Working with clients such a Lindsay & Jos that allow me to be as creative as possible is such a dream come true! Designing custom wedding invitations such as this newspaper wedding invitation is such a great way to show off a personal and humorous touch for your wedding.
