I don't know where she came across it - probably at her local library, but I'm really happy that she did, & that she thought of me!
I disagree with the reviewer who stated something to the effect that only with a team of fab designers could anyone make these invites. Marc Friedland presents them, not to be copied exactly, but as jumping off, inspirational material from which to glean ideas. The presentation is gorgeous, with fabulous, clear photographs. *Invitations* could not be more packed with info on where to get supplies, how to choose looks, etc.
No, it's not a step-by-step how-to volume. But for those of us who want to make what we create truly our own, it couldn't be better.
Some might think that this is just a "vanity piece" but the ideas in this book aren't really there for you to duplicate; they show you what "can be" and offer a wealth of inspiration to those of us who don't want to send out pre-packaged Hallmark invites!
After getting this book a few weeks ago, I've lent it out twice and I've already adapted an idea or two from the book and also created some of my own to put extraordinary, unique touches on my wedding and pre-wedding party invites and print materials...and so can you!
As far as I'm concerned, the details he includes about the expensive celebrity parties are a fringe benefit...It doesn't mean that special invites are reserved for such lavish events. It's just an added touch of fun gossipy stuff like you'd see in "People" or "In Style" magazines!
Great job Marc Friedland!
The wedding invitations I made were a success and now everyone is talking about them! The invitations are the first impression people get about your party so it is very important to make them believe they have to attend!
