This is the goal. This is what you want. As I reflect back, I realize I had been caught up and swept away in the very same scenario I hope will unfold every time I create an invitation. Let me just tell you the story.
A few weeks ago my husband and I received a wedding invitation in the mail from one of his coworkers. When I opened the envelope and saw the invitation, I literally gasped. Unique. Beautiful. Well-made. Pleasing. Intriguing. I was immediately a bosom friend of the bride-to-be, even though I did not know her at all. And I knew that whether these people were important to me or not, I was going to be at that wedding come hell or high water. And I was.
And let me tell you, it did not disappoint. The feeling and mood the invitation had evoked was carried out beautifully and creatively in even the smallest detail of the wedding and reception. I was taken in and enveloped in the theme, a tribute to the venue--a citrus orchard owned by the bride's grandparents.
What a gorgeous night it was: the guests celebratory and comfortable, the surroundings spectacular, and the couple literally glowing.
The invitation was the beautiful precursor that captured my attention from the very start. That is the goal. That is what you want! Let us create it for you!
