Mood Board: Farmhouse Wedding Invites

Do you ever have those conversations where you nod and smile, but in your head you're a bit more like Kristen Wiig in Bridesmaids drinking wine from the bottle? No? Ok, just me then. I have to admit, when my close friend and former college roomie talked to me about designing her wedding invitations, I thought: Amanda, run. Run now.

It's no secret that weddings can bring out the good, the bad, and the ugly, so I was downright scared that this one could take a turn for the worst. But a few months later, I'm happy to report that I've worked with the chillest bride on the planet. And I mean it ladies. This girl deserves an award for approving first-round designs, right off the bat.

But that doesn't mean there wasn't a good deal of planning and pinning that went into these designs. So today I thought I'd share a sneak peek of the mood board that I created for her invitations. I'm a big fan of that jumping picture of the bridal party — relaxed and fun. Just Melissa's style.
