Planning A... Wedding Inspired by the Domino Book, part I


I know when I originally launched this series, I said we wouldn't be covering entire weddings since its time consuming. However, this particular "wedding" I did for a contest on my favorite blog, Elements of Style. The contest was to design a room around the Domino book cover. Since Erin, writer of Elements of Style, has said that events are "temporary interiors" I decided to design a whole wedding, complete with invitation! Well guess what, I won the contest!! I was so surprised and thrilled!! In this 2 part installment of posts you'll see the wedding concepts from the invitation, right down to the reception. Enjoy!!

Up first, here is a look at the domino book cover.


The invitation, by Zenadia Design.


For the invitation, I wanted an elegant organic feel. The invitation is housed in a handmade canvas bag, tied with twine and labeled with each guests name.


The invitation suite takes inspiration from the domino book cover, with the birds and florals.




The Attire:
I thought clothing that was light and airy would be ideal. Also soft in color, in keeping with the overall feel of the celebration. (Click the board to zoom in)
