Fab Finds Friday: Wedding Infographic Invitation
Super in love with this fun wedding infographic invitation! Created by Abby Ryan Design for her very own wedding, it includes the wedding invitation, the rehearsal dinner invitation, the program and the menu. The bottom 5 inches or so that is the rehearsal dinner invite was cut off for those only invited to the wedding. The save the date and wedding website are also pictured at the link above– all on a 18×24 poster! With infographics becoming more popular, we thought this was absolutely fab!
We caught up with Abby to ask her what she thinks other couples should include on their wedding infographic invitation:
What was your inspiration for the infographic?
The concept started with my save the date. I wanted to design something that celebrates our relationship and I thought it would be really fun to focus on all of the memorable events we’ve experienced together, I quickly figured out the best way to visually show this was to create an infographic.
When it came time to start designing the invitation I knew I wanted the tone to match the save the date. I considered doing something more typographic but it didn’t feel like it fit us or our wedding. Our wedding is a bit more casual then the typical wedding, all open communal seating, for dinner we are having 3 food trucks in the courtyard behind the venue, so we needed the invitation to reflect this. Also, being a graphic design myself, I knew that my friends and family invited were expecting something big. The final product is a 18×24 screen printed poster that lays out all of the days events and all of the details, from the drink specials, to the food truck offerings.
The poster was quite pricey to mail so to save some money we printed the rehearsal dinner invitation at the bottom of the poster. For those guests only invited to the wedding we simply trimmed them off!
How was it received by guests– did they enjoy it, find it useful, etc.?
All of the guests loved the invitations. First, it came in a huge tube, and who doesn’t like to receive packages in the mail. Most of our friends and family have already picked out which truck they are going to eat from first! It covers your entire fridge, but I have already seen it on a few!
What tips do you have for other couples looking to have a wedding infographic for their wedding invitation?
The most important part is to have all of the details decided early enough to include them! We had to pick out our signature cocktails way before you’d normally have to so we could include them. But there were a few things we missed since we had to design it so early before hand, for example we decided we would book a shuttle from the hotel to the venue for the wedding night, had we planned that earlier I would have threw that in too!
