A Special Wedding Invitation


















A good friend of mine is getting married next year and has asked me to design her invitations. She is getting married at a wild life game reserve. She wants to keep the colours of the wedding natural so I decided to make the sample invites in different shades of green. I made two samples, the first is a large 750ml bottle of locally produced red wine and the second is a small 175ml bottle of red wine also produced here in South Africa. Each invitation will be in a little wooden box lined with straw and hand delivered.









































I thought it would be nice to add a note in the wooden box asking people that were attending to bring their bottle of wine to drink at the receptions and to ask those people that could not attend to drink their wine on the evening of the wedding.

Fabulous idea Adele! and must say I think: only in SA! I just love the way weddings are held outdoors here, it makes for a wonderful atmosphere and is sooo romantic ;o)
