Designing and printing your own nuptial paper goods is only really fun when you are artistically inclined. Sure, there are invitation kits and stationary sets and special paper made just for programs, but it takes a creative hand to make what basically amounts to a glorified greeting card truly shine. Me, I prefer to leave such things to the pros… Pros like Kristy Rice of Momental, who created all of the stationary for her own wedding. Impressed, friends and family asked for the same service. Then — and here happy non-artistic brides everywhere rejoiced — Kristy started offering her beautifully designed, hand-detailed paper goods to the world.
Now, I don’t know Kristy, but as far as I can tell, she’s friendly (have a look at her blog), accommodating (she takes requests), and fun (just look at her dog). Wouldn’t it be nice to know that your invitations were crafted by someone who really loves what they do? Someone who cares enough about the quality of your invitations to sit for hours applying paint by hand? Someone who can actually paint?
There is a lot to see on the Momental web site, so go check it out. It looks like Kristy is going to be offering custom paintings soon, and I hope she doesn’t wait too long. Something like that could be just what we need to make the new house a home!
