The Ultimate Damask Wedding

I rarely get to see pictures of My Creative Wedding products in action, so when I received an email with pictures from a recent wedding, I was thrilled! My Creative Wedding did the programs, menus, table numbers, favor labels and sign design for this wedding. It was gorgeously put together by Avril from Update Events all the way in Canada. Her client's Damask theme was accented with a cymbidium orchid green.
Damask programs were handed out to her guests and followed the same damask pattern.

A beautiful damask sign to escort the guests to the ceremony site was designed by yours truly. The welcome table was beautiful. Avril's florist did a wonderful job with the entrance piece. Did you notice the black and white pok-a-dot flowergirl box? Too adorable! I'm gonna have to make a damask one for my next damask wedding! She hung placecards on the entrance piece, which I thought was smashing!
Look at the bridal party's table below. It's so pretty, how can anyone eat on it? The reception tablecloths alternated from black to the damask pattern and the table numbers carried the same color scheme. The napkin tucked menu with the little flower accent was beautiful! Her pillow box favors packaged with black and white grosgrain stitched ribbon and My Creative Wedding damask favor labels were simple and chic! I love how the pillow box is not EXACTLY the same green but a lighter version of her color. I also love the square plate setting. I love everything about this wedding!

French Royalty Damask Design

When the customer asked for a rich color palette using a variation of purples and gold, I was so excited! That happens to be my favorite color combination right now. We wanted a feel of French royalty using a lot of print and playing with damask prints, brocades and florals. Off to the drawing board I went! It was a sweet treat when my client told me that I nailed the design on the first try! C'est magnificant!

Damask Programs • Damask Menus • Damask Table Numbers • Damask Placecards • Apple Green accents

My Creative Wedding's new custom damask design that was done for Elegant Events by Maureen in Texas.
The programs were done with metallic apple green paper, held together with black satin cord. The unique shape was consistent with the invitation and the design was made to match the damask cake. I'm still waiting for actual pictures from the wedding. I can't wait!

Damask Gable Boxes were also made, containing 2 damask labeled water bottles, snacks, CD for music, a welcome card and directions to the reception.

The welcome cards that were included inside the gable boxes gave information on local restaurants and entertainment. I'm sure that her guests were impressed by the details that were executed throughout the wedding.

The beautiful contrast of Yellow and Silver Invitations

We have been doing a lot of yellow and silver/grey invitations lately. I love the contrast of the yellow and grey.
Our friends at JAC Photography took this one on the day of
Her invitations were packaged in a thick metallic dark grey pocket folder. The invitations had custom drawn flower accents that made it the invitations pop!

The custom drawn flowers were drawn from a picture of cymbidium orchids and changed to her coordinating colors.

The Carnival Wedding Theme

So on lucky 08.08.08 we delivered carnival centerpiece/favors for one of our unique brides Tiffany. Each centerpiece was different. Colorful hat boxes in different shapes and sizes and mix and match colors of fushia and navy blue were topped with ferris wheel frames, merry go round frames and a tower of favor boxes. The frames featured different pictures that they took at the Santa Monica pier. The frames were fully functional and turned, twirled and spinned.
Her table numbers were in the shape of flags.
Her escort cards were the cutest little detail. They were tickets with the guest's names on one side and the table name on the other. The tables were carnival themed, like "Tilt-a-Whirl", "Bumper Cars" and "Snow Cones". Purchase these carnival escort cards HERE
The favor boxes resembled her invitations:

Amy and Jack from Allentown, Pennsylvania, got married last month. Each detail of their wedding echo the stunning damask design with accents of pink and apple green! Amy was gracious to forward me her photographer, Patricia Lyons Photography, which in my opinion had such a great eye capturing all the details of Amy's wedding.

I think that I'm finally ready to part with my Vera Wang wedding dress. Mind you, this isn't the one that wore at my wedding! This is the first dress that I bought that I never wore! Purchased it from a gal in New York that wore it once. I never ended up wearing it because we originally were suppose to marry in a church and I fell in love with the bustle. I still wore a Vera Wang for my wedding but I don't think I'll ever sell that one! :) I purchased this Vera Wang wedding dress for $1800 and I'm willing to let it go for $1200 or best offer. The original price was $5500!

Size 6 (which really fits 0-2)
Good for 5'7 height or 5'3 and 4" heels (which was my plan...hee hee)
33-34 bust
color: light ivory
Needs to be cleaned and pressed

Only serious buyers...please email My Creative Wedding at

If you have a couture dress that you'd like to sell, email me at

The "White" Wedding Invitation - Revised.

My Creative Wedding gets a lot of people who comment on how bad invitations used to look. "Just white invitations with no color and plain. Just blah." White invitations aren't so bad. There are so many different shades and textures of white. It can look just as fabulous as green and pink! Here's one white wedding invitation for Johanah. White metallic paper mixed with a variety of textures. From white lace to white canvas paper! Thermography printed with not black ink, but dark mahogany to match her black (really really dark red) roses.
