I haven't updated in two weeks, sorry about that! I've been swamped with work.

In the winter of 2011 I came up with an idea inspired by American weddings. In the US people spend a lot of time and effort to their wedding day. I think it's amazing and inspirational. In my country, the Netherlands, it's not so usual to make such a big event of your wedding. I have no idea why because it's a once in a life time event (at least, I hope!).
A few weeks ago I made an illustration for wedding blog Velvetine Online. That brought to my attention that there really is a lack of creative wedding invitations. Time for a change, right?

The last couple of weeks I've been cooking up some ideas for personal, custom illustrated wedding invitations. My idea is to create portraits of the bride and groom, add handwritten text and create one of a kind wedding invitations!

I was aiming on the Dutch market at first but maybe it's something for other countries too? I would love it if you could let me know what you think of this idea.

In the meantime, here are two example invitations:

  1. Ja, ik ben er wel fan van. Ik zou het wel doen (maar ik ben al getrouwd) Ik zie ook vaak leuke custom kerstkaarten. Best Amerikaans, maar ik vind het wel verfrissend, weer eens wat anders.
    Leuke voorbeelden!

  2. Go, go, go Marloes!!! These are lovely and I'm sure the demand is there to have a personal, well designed card for the wedding. A woman here in Weimar started to make wedding cards and now she is just doing this. So many ask her to make these cards!! She even has an employee!! :)

  3. I think it's a wonderful idea. In Brazil we also have great marriages. Can you imagine making invites in Portuguese too? hehehehehehe. Beijos grandes.

  4. Er is wel vraag naar hoor :) maar mensen maken er niet zoveel gebruik van omdat het extra geld kost en ook meer moeite denk ik. Sommige mensen hechten meer waarde aan een kaartje dan anderen dus vandaar dat die markt niet zo groot is maar zeker wel bestaat (tenminste, ik heb zeker al 2 opdracht voor een geboortekaartje en 1 opdracht voor trouwkaartje gekregen!

  7. app utvikling

    I 2011 startet jeg å lage min første app: Job Interview app. En iPhone/iPad app som jobbsøkere kan øve på jobb intervju. Jeg fikk laget over 100 video snutter som ble lagt inn i appen. Videosnutter med spørsmål, svar og forslag til hvordan besvare spørsmålene. Når man har sett videoene kan man ta opp seg selv og se hvordan man svarer. Dette var min første app og etter lansering ble det en stor fiasko. Men jeg nektet å gi opp. Jeg forbedret grafikken, endret funksjonalitet, la inn sjekk lister, quiz, flip cards og masse mer. Nedlastningene er nå vel over fem sifret. website: www.appsonite.no

  32. When picking the style of the custom wedding invitation you want to keep the type of wedding that you are having in mind. If you are having an outdoor wedding or a themed wedding you might want to incorporate the same theme into the custom wedding invitation. It draws attention to the style of the wedding and can actually help the guests know how to dress for your special day. Many brides have decided that they should include extra things in the invitations such as pictures, poems or other saying that makes the invitation unique. A few months ago, one of my friends booked custom Wedding Invitation Card from Lavenderpaperie.com, for his Wedding ceremony. Thanks for sharing this info with us.
