These wedding invitations from Vanessa at Alchemy Fine Events & Invitations are so creative. The bride and goom, Lindsay and Jos, met at a comedy club and wanted to infuse their wedding invitations with both their sense of humor and the old-world romantic charm of their wedding venue. Vanessa of Alchemy Events created a newspaper-inspired invitation suite, complete with horoscopes and funny pages!
From Vanessa: Lind say and Jos were mar ried at Casa Romantica in San Clemente and wanted to bring in the romantic charm of the venue while also show ing off their sense of humor. We cre ated a classic folded newspaper style invitation complete with various sections such to provide the guests with all of the impor tant and fun details of their wedding to follow. For the front page news we featured Lindsay and Jos in their dapper attire announcing the ‘merger’ that was to come.
We placed the actual invitation under the ‘Society’ section. The invitation was printed on thick Italian paper with art nou veau style floral illustrations, showing that humor blends beautifully with a bit of luxury and class. In the ‘Local’ section, we created a review of the historical Casa Romantica and information about its legendary key hole entryway.
Under the ‘Classifieds’ sec tion Lindsay and Jos wrote personal ads describing each other. Lindsay’s ad included: “SWF Seek ing: Must have a strong love of family and even stronger sense of humor. Chardon nay lover pre ferred. Knowl edge of clas sic rock manda tory.” Some of Jos’s per sonal ad included “SWM Seek ing: Must love laughing, family and Penn State football. Can adapt to emotional change in male due to sports addiction. Knowledge of 80’s music mandatory.” We also created a horoscope predicting each guest’s future at the wedding.
For even more hilarious anecdotes we created a two page “Funnies Sec tion” with a jumbled word find, comics, and cross word puzzle revealing hidden and hilarious secrets about the couple and details of the wedding.
On the last page of the newspaper we provided guests with a lit tle helpful info such as the “Weather” forecast to aide in out fit selection and “Travel” section with direction and hotel review information.
