Hey all! Thought I’d pop in and give you an update on what I’m working on/set a few other ideas in motion.
This week I’m working on some freelance wedding invites for a friend of a friend. Pretty excited because they’re having a Star Wars wedding and well… that’s definitely on brand with GEEKinSTL.
So since I kind of have wedding stuff on the brain I thought I’d share one of the first wedding suites I did for a friend in honor of #WeddingWednesday.
When Roxy asked me to design her wedding stuff for her I felt so honored. I hadn’t felt so excited since the first time I was asked to be a bridesmaid (I’ve been a bridesmaid… let’s see… 7 times now, but it was less at the time I was designing these, like 5?). I had done invites or programs before, but this was the first time I did everything. Invites, RSVPs, Program, etc. And to make it even better Roxy paid me in fried pickles! haha
After doing this wedding suite it’s kind of become my thing for friends, their wedding gift. I honestly love doing it. It lets me be a part of their special day and it lets me use my skills to hopefully make their wedding planning process a little easier, something I have a better appreciation for after our own wedding. I’m glad Roxy thought to ask me and that she was the first one I did them for because she’s super chill, which made it easier for me as I was learning. She also had some really fun ideas, like the mad libs, which I borrowed for our wedding.
Side note: Roxy & Alex just celebrated their 6th wedding anniversary, which is also why this set was on my mind. Congrats you two!
As you can tell I like hashtags. I think they’re important to help get your work out there and let other people see what you’re doing. So warning, I’m probably going to have a couple of hashtags that I use regularly on here. Also, I think they will help keep me inspired to post. Oh it’s Wednesday? I guess I could post something for #WeddingWednesday. Stuff like that. These new hashtags won’t have rules like #FollowYourArrowFriday, they’ll just be more for fun.
