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!). Well, Lyndsay is back with another awesome book wedding invitation that she created for newlyweds Joanna and Martin! 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: This project was for a UK couple, librarian Joanna and IT specialist Martin. Joanna hired me after seeing my last book invitation and we worked together to make their project unique and very personalised to them. Joanna and Martin got engaged at the Glastonbury Music Festival in June 2010, and their invitation design was influenced by their love of music and literature.
The wedding invitation was a book with a paper slip cover, concertina-folded rather than bound, with a hidden section at the back that revealed a USB drive filled with digital goodies by the couple for each guest.
In addition to the invitation, I also designed quite a few paper items for the day of the ceremony and reception which also had a music/book theme: a music poster seating chart, record-themed menus, bookmark favors, and name badges. The wedding program we designed together was also fun: it had a glassine envelope filled with confetti attached to the front of each booklet.
