Her Majesty is very particular when comes to wedding stationaries in terms of colour coordination and design. For someone who is experience in dealing with design and printing, she knows that it can costs us a bom if we are paying a professional. So DIY and be creative came into her plan.
As mentioned in my post earlier, our black and hot pink invitation card was designed and printed by her friends on compliments basis. When she told me how much does it costs per card, I was having a big shock. Enough for me to pay for the whole week’s toll charges.
Normally wedding couples will just buy the ready printed church ceremony booklet’s cover from the bookstore, then pay a printer to do the booklet’s layout. But we wanted something that’s more personalised, so her majesty printed our own cover at home, design the layout of booklet by herself then sent it for photostat at Bormas. The bridesmaids spent less than an hour time to fold and tie it the night before the wedding.
For the dinner reception, the design of table numbers and seating cards were re-adapt and made by Her Majesty too. Each table is named after the Disney cartoon.
Individual seating card for every guest
If you pay a close attention to the table number, seating card and invitation, you’ll realise that all share the same design.
To be different from other weddings, her majesty didn’t want the typical guest sign in book that you’ll end up just put it on the shelves. Initially we ordered a canvas print from this studio in Kompleks Mutiara Jln Ipoh but three days before the wedding, we just get to know that everything was not in order. Given two days left, it’s really hard to find something similar not to mention we don’t have the time for it. Again, we must thanks an old friend of hers who is a professional commercial photographer, for calling up his friend to rush a last minute job for us.
We are going to frame this photo and display it in our house. It’s definitely a meaningful memory for us.
