It’s no secret that Game of Thrones has become a world wide phenomenon. It’s also not a secret that I have never seen an episode in my life. Whenever I mention this to someone, there is a gasp followed by, “BUT WHY?!?!?”. I genuinely don’t have an answer as to why I’ve never gotten into the HBO hit series, but there is one thing that was clear when I was asked by Abby from Blue Orchid Event Design to participate in a styled wedding shoot - I wanted in.
Trying to keep away from the usual medieval tokens such as a scroll, I really wanted to keep the invitation clean and modern but maintain a rustic feel. The addition of the hand torn edges wrapped with gray twine and wax seal cemented this idea. I also wanted to convey a little bit of the ice factor (#winterishere) and did so by using a vellum mailing envelope.
