A Midsummer Night's Dream

So this post is long overdue and I apologize.  For our wedding we wanted an old-fashioned, vintage style wedding with class.  Since our wedding was in July, I came up with a thought of a Midsummer Night's Dream.  Later, I found out this was a Shakespeare romantic comedy! So, we added Shakespeare into our theme.

My husband came up with the idea for scroll invitations to match the timeframe we were going for.  I figured if we're going to do this, might as well go all out and make them look as real as possible!


The scroll was tied with a ribbon then another ribbon wrapped around the rest of the inserts (reply card and envelope, reception card and map/directions card).

This all fitted into a dark blue metallic inner envelope, which then fitted inside a gold leaf metallic outer envelope.

We received so many flattering comments on these!  It really wowed our guests and they loved them!  Keep in mind if you do this, you do have to pay shipping on these.  It costs us $1.88 per invite to send in the mail.

I also created our own candy buffet.  It included a variety of candies like lentils, rock candy, gummies and even some Italian candies to go with our honeymoon (we went to Rome, Italy for our honeymoon!).  I created all the paperie products for this candy buffet.


Also, for our programs for the ceremony, we rolled them up into scrolls!

Why stop there?  Our table number signs and other signs around the room were attached to rods and hung by ribbon!  Every guest also received a "Thank You" note rolled up and tied of with a ribbon.

Our escort cards were a little different as well.  We created books for every couple.  The outside was stamped with their names, the spine stamped with "A Midsummer Night's Dream" and the inside had a picture of us on one side with the other side their table assignment with a page from the romantic comedy.


If you liked this theme or any of the products mentioned above, we'll be more than happy to help you!  Contact us for details and pricing.
