WNS: Behind the scenes in the creation of Vanessa Williams 14-carat-gold-plated Wedding Invites

Find below excerpts from an interview with Adorn Invitations on creating the invites:

How did Vanessa find out about Adorn Invitations?  

With many of our invites being featured on Pinterest, Vanessa found our designs to be very creative and a good match to what she imagined.

The first steps…

She had a basic idea, a super lavish ‘Carmen Marc Valvo’ dress and an Egyptian theme (Vanessa and Jim, both from Buffalo NY actually met randomly in Egypt hence the theme). The rest was pretty much left up to us, to pitch our ideas on colour themes, invitation design and beyond – including some of the décor like Peonies flowers, laser cut golden cupcake holders, gold glimmer table cloth covers etc. We got along really well and our ideas resonated with her and inspired lot of what transpired in her wedding décor. She really loved our idea of combining Marsala highlight (colour of the year) with gold, and our idea to laser cut the pattern matching her wedding dress.
