The place cards I penned were nestled among roses and jewels. We used Biltmore Estate historic facts for the table names, which was fun, as well as interesting and informative.
The bride asked me to have a menu designed in a square format using various type sizes, going from small to large. We wanted to use the same script and Parisian borders I used to design her wedding invitations and have them flow into the reception pieces. I asked Heather, owner of Real Card Studio (one the exquisite lines we offer at A Fine Line), to see what she could do with these special requests. Heather never disappoints, so I knew she would come up with something fabulous …and she did! This is one of my most favorite menu and program designs ever. They were letterpress printed in chocolate and champagne on handmade Italian paper. The bride wanted something very modern, while her mother requested the design be classic and traditional. We were able to please both and the final product was stunning! The bride’s mother told me the menu was the most photographed element of the wedding among the photos taken by their friends and family.
This brings me to the special we are offering at A Fine Line running until December 31. Receive 10-15% off wedding programs and menus when purchased with wedding invitation suites from the same company. This promotion applies to specially selected lines we carry.
