The very last step in the wedding process is sending out the thank you cards. About a month after the big day, when Rob and I had finally recovered and we’d reluctantly finished the last of the cheese, we started thinking about how to thank our lovely guests.
It took us all of 5 minutes to agree that we didn’t want to use a photo from the day itself (as is the norm) and another 30 seconds to decide that an illustration was the way to go. And there was never any question who we’d ask – the amazing Kris Atomic created our wedding invites and I knew her style would work just as beautifully for the thank you cards.
An email or so and a few weeks later, Kris sent over her illustration and spent at least half an hour staring lovingly into my own illustrated eyes. I mean, look at it!
Kris captured every detail so beautifully – from Rob’s spotted tie to the lace of my dress. It still makes me smile every time I see it.
With the illustration in place, I went back to Printed.com and had it printed on simple, textured card. We used Printed.com for part of the invites and the service is always impeccable – speedy, cheap and great quality.
I hand-wrote every card and sent them all off in the post, making sure to save a couple for framing. One now lives on my desk at work, and this one’s on the mantlepiece.
There are so many options when it comes to wedding stationery, but going bespoke really worked for us. There’s nothing like seeing your ‘vision’ come to life exactly as you imagined, and hopefully you’ll be left with mementoes of the day that you’ll treasure forever. </Hallmark moment>
