Purple Orchids Wedding Invitations (Invitatii cu orhidee mov)

This invitation is from a set I have finished this week. The design was inspired by the bride’s bouquet which will be made of purple orchids.
Aceasta invitatie face parte dinr-un set pe care l-am terminat saptamana aceasta. Design-ul a fost inspirat de buchetul miresei care va fi compus din orhidee mov.

This is not the actual bouquet, it is how I imagined it.
In fotografia de mai sus nu e chiar buchetul miresei, ci modul cum mi l-am imaginat eu.

I have actually worked with the bride and groom on the invitation details until they were satisfied with the result. After I presented them several ideas they decided to go on lavender and lilac. My design was made using purple for the cover (I’ll show it to you in a future post, hopefully this week.) We kept my idea for the inside (lilac background and orchid motif) but they wanted to add something more so I started playing with the decorative edge scissors until we got to the design you see in the photo. The lilac stripe of paper is adhered to the inside of the front panel with double sided tape to give the impression of a faux lace.
Am lucrat cu viitorii miri la detaliile invitatiei pana cand acestia au fost multumiti de rezultat. Dupa ce le-am aratat cateva modele pe care le pregatisem pentru ei, s-au hotarat sa mearga pe mov si liliac. Modelul meu folosea un mov mai spre visiniu (voi publica o fotografie intr-un articol viitor. Am pastrat ideea mea de fond liliachiu si simbolul orhideii pentru interior, dar mirii mai doreau sa adauge ceva. Astfel am ajuns la varianta cu fasia taiata cu foarfeci decorative si lipita pe interior pentru a crea imresia de dantela.

The names have been deleted for privacy reasons.
Numele au fost sterse pentru a pastra anonimatul mirilor.

I also decorated a wooden box to go with the invitations. The paint wasn’t even dry when I had to give it away, but I managed to take a photo so I can show it to you soon.
Pe langa invitatii am mai decorat o cutie de lemn in ton cu acestea. Desi abia o terminasem cand a trebuit s-o dau am reusit sa-i fac o fotografie pentru a o posta aici intr-un articol viitor.
