Late last year I got asked to create an invite to a bridal shower. The person asking was my mom; she and the mother of the bride, a good friend of hers, were planning on throwing a bridal shower of their own. Their shower would be geared towards the mother of the brides friends so then the brides friends could throw their own shower.
The bride’s husband serves in the navy so my mom asked if I could incorporate that into the design. Hence the blue and yellow color scheme and tiny navy hat in the corner. I didn’t want the navy influence to overpower the fact this was an invitation to a bridal shower though. I also went for a more modern look in the design which was definitely not my first inclination and required lots of Googling to see ideas for different types of invitations.
Overall though I am quite happy with how it turned out, especially since it’s been quite a few years since I’ve played around in Illustrator.
