This handmade wedding invitation represents a collaboration between a fine press and groom/designer Taylor Gorman. Taylor brought the designs and an antique dictionary while we brought the materials, connections and quite a bit of labor to the project.
The couple wanted a rustic, handmade feel and something their invitees could take away with them. We suggested they go with one of Porridge Papers‘ plantable papers – in this case, one that blooms wildflowers – so the invitation could live on in their friends’ and family’s gardens. We stitched a page from an antique dictionary to the back and attached a handmade pocket reminiscent of library return cards. The pocket holds the couple’s RSVP postcard, also made of Porridge’s plantable paper.
Affixed to the entire assembly is a hand-stamped strip of muslin with the couple’s monogram (echoed on the front of the envelope). We attached the muslin to the invitation with two lengths of twine through a brass grommet.We love turning our clients’ visions into tangible reminders of their upcoming weddings!
