DIY Retro Wedding Invites

We have a super treat for you today from Patricia Teo! We first have her incredibly cute eco friendly wedding cd invites, along with her super cute retro engagement pictures, which, by the way, she took herself! The CD contains their wedding invitation, some wonderful songs from the fifties, and a picture folder with some of the pictures taken on their  d.i.y. photo shoot. To see more on how Pat created this retro wedding invite click here.

Here is how Patricia pulled it off:
“In order to save money and full control over our own engagement shoot, we decided to do it all ourselves, armed with only a camera and a friend to help us oversee the shot and press the shutter button. I have also been doing my research online and saw so many pictures that are so inspiring and beautiful. And I thought to myself, I can do that too! Granted, I’m not a skilled photographer nor do I have the equipment to back me up, I do however have a DSLR camera and a love for experimenting. There was so much I wanted to try and I got so excited that I forgot about the other options and just decided that we would do the shoot ourselves!

“The theme of our wedding is 50s Rock and Roll, when music is still alive! Thus, I tried very hard to obtain that look and looked for places in Singapore that still retain that old vintage charm (which is actually not hard to find if we look hard enough).”

  8. Really LOVE those invitations! If only I could get married again….lol (I’m super happy with my husband)

  9. May I just say what a relief to uncover somebody who really understands what they’re discussing online.

    You actually know how to bring a problem to light and make it important.

    More people need to check this out and understand this side of your story.
    I was surprised you are not more popular because you surely have the gift.
