I love making something, just that little bit different....
The Ivy themed wedding postbox was the starting point.
Made some time ago for my late husbands, cousins wedding
and long before I bought the foiling machine.
Ivy symbolises eternal fidelity & wedded bliss.
A popular Victorian tradition was for a bride to plant the ivy in her bouquet after the wedding and watch it grow through the years, passing down sprigs from the same plant for her daughters & granddaughters to use in their weddings.
The couple chose to have their Evening Invitations
and Money Request cards in a lush green foil....
And the Daytime, gate folded
Daytime Invitations in Silver Foil
so as to not over power the green ribbon.
Have you ever wondered about the traditions and customs
attached to weddings?I found this an interesting read
Another great article, this time covering flower traditions
around the world is this one, by 'The Knot'
