Sometimes, I don’t hear many of the details of a couple’s relationship, besides when and where they are getting married or their wedding colors, but I am making an effort to change that. Some of my favorite invitations I have created involve me helping tell a small part of their story through their invitation suite.
Cindy got in touch with me about creating an invitation for her and her husband Tim with some special wording. She chose a simple, botanical pattern on white cardstock with green envelopes. I love it when we collaborate with a client to create an invitation that is meaningful to the couple and their guests. The highlight of the invitation is the opening line that read “it’s never too late to live happily ever after.”
Cindy shared a little background information so I could learn more about their story.
From Cindy: Tim and I had our wedding planned for November of 2017. Tim ended up having a stroke… 5 strokes actually. We had everything ready, invitations out, cake bought, dress altered… everything! We indefinitely postponed our ceremony but went to the court house and got married.
Now that he’s doing much better, we’ve decided to try again.
I forgot to mention that Tim and I met 42 years ago in 6th grade. We were each other’s first boy/girl friend in elementary school! After dating again in high school, we went our separate ways after graduation. 9 years ago we rekindled our dream to live happily ever after!
What a special story and inspiration! We are wishing Cindy and Tim all the best! What an important lesson that it’s never too late to choose happiness and love and look for our happily ever after.
