Wedding: Invitations/RSVPs

November 6, 2012

A high school friend of mine, Amy Brennan McDaniel, was kind enough to custom-design Matt’s and my wedding invitations. As I’ve mentioned elsewhere, our wedding colors were black and white and our “theme” was…bats!

Amy did a fabulous job! If you love her work and want to commission her for a project of your own, send me an email and I’ll get you in touch with her.

We also did something rather unusual: we enclosed a Frequently Asked Questions sheet with our invitations. Since we were having such a nontraditional wedding, we thought it’d be helpful (and in keeping with the generally irreverent spirit of our nuptials) to satisfy guests’ curiosities about the event in advance (and answer some basic logistical questions we were sure to get asked again and again).

    “Forget the YMCA and the chicken dance” made me laugh! 😀

    I love the RSVP card – it reminds me of Lil’ Drac the fruit bat. Have you seen him? The little bat that likes to rock himself after being fed? I love him! If you haven’t seen him, here’s his video on youtube: (hanging/rocking action starts at about 2:20)

      Matt and I LOOOVE Lil Drac! I can’t count how many times we’ve watched that video and I’ve about died making cutesy gaga sounds at it.

    Everyone I showed the invitation to loved it 🙂 So unique and so fun. Even if we never got to dance the Nutbush either… 😉

    I love it! Love bats – next tattoo, in fact. Also love the musical selection. I’m sure it was awesome 🙂

    Supercool invite! Does Amy have a website to see more of her work?

      She doesn’t, but if you had a specific project in mind for her, I could get you in contact with her. 🙂

    Your FAQ idea is so awesome! Why didn’t I think of that for my wedding?!

      It was quite, ah…controversial with the family. But we found it REALLY helped guests know what the event was going to be all about!
