Dogue de Bordeaux Save the Dates

Posted on Jun 11, 2012 in Featured, New Designs, Save the dates | 0 comments

The Dogue de Bordeaux save the dates came about from a lovely couple – Rob and Lauren who have the most amazing dog, Arnie.  If you saw him in real life you would understand why he has this name, he is a beast!

Anyway, they both absolutely adore their dog, but obviously he has not got an invite to the wedding so they wanted to try involve him somehow and the wedding stationery was a great place to start.

Lauren and I juggled with a few ideas then it was left with me to come up with a cutesy sketch of Arnie, adding a top hat and bow tie to get him ready for the occasion.







Rob and Lauren wanted the invites to have a light hearted feel, everyone who knows them knows how big a part of their world Arnie is and they felt they would enjoy the tongue in cheek feel to the invites.

When I showed them the mock ups they were delighted and I was given the go ahead to produce 60 save the dates in this style.

I delivered the finished product to Rob and Lauren yesterday and I could not be more happy with the reaction I received, the testimonial from Lauren really made me smile too – check it out!









I must say it was great picking up my brush and spending some time getting back into painting, more recently the invites I have worked on have been more crafty so it was a refreshing change. I look forward to working on their wedding invites!
