Longtime readers might remember the awesome pulp novel-inspired wedding invitations that Lyndsay from It’s a Date Design created for her good friends Lis and Jay (and if not, they’re definitely worth checking out!). Â Well, Lyndsay is back with another awesome book wedding invitation that she created for newlyweds Joanna and Martin! Â Lyndsay incorporated Joanna and Martin’s love for music into a modern book-style wedding invitation, as well as several accompanying elements for the day of the wedding.
From Lyndsay:Â This project was for a UK couple, librarian Joanna and IT specialistÂ Martin. Â Joanna hired me after seeing my last book invitation and weÂ worked together to make their project unique and very personalised toÂ them. Â Joanna and Martin got engaged at the Glastonbury Music Festival in JuneÂ 2010, and their invitation design was influenced by their love ofÂ music and literature.
The wedding invitation was a book with a paperÂ slip cover, concertina-folded rather than bound, with a hidden sectionÂ at the back that revealed a USB drive filled with digital goodies byÂ the couple for each guest.
In addition to the invitation, I alsoÂ designed quite a few paper items for the day of the ceremony andÂ reception which also had a music/book theme: a music posterÂ seating chart, record-themed menus, bookmark favors, and name badges. Â The wedding program we designed together was also fun: it had aÂ glassine envelope filled with confetti attached to the front of eachÂ booklet.
