You might remember Shauna and Darrell’s amazing rustic wood etched save the dates for their summer barn wedding – and today Shauna is back to share her invitations! Based on her save the date, I wasn’t surprised to see that Shauna took a non-traditional approach to her wedding invitations, elevating an inexpensive Ikea kitchen towel into a wonderful wedding keepsake!
From Shauna: I didn’t want my invitations to be thrown in the garbage – and I wanted something people could use afterwards, like a keepsake. So I bought one hundred Ikea tea towels and had my design printed on them using a flat-bed printer. I hired a talented illustrator, Kyle Metalf who helped me carry out my vision. The illustration acts like a map and shows a school bus (which we rented) taking our guests from Calgary to the small town of Okotoks. It features all the buildings and landmarks on the farm where we go married. I am really happy with how it turned out!
