Wedding Timelines + City Guide

We had Etsy designer Meyer Market Designs design our Wedding Timelines, we used photoshop to design our “Guides to our Favorite Spots” and Welcome Tags.  We found the perfect color blush paper and ribbon from PaperSource.  We did all of the logos and fonts in gold foil to go with out color scheme.  And our favorite thing to tie it all together, a sparkly clothespin paper clip from Target.
