Invitations: Art that Invites

Use your stationary to tell a story!


Oregon Bride Spring/Summer 2021

Finding creative ways to make the big day feel unique has never been a bigger priority for engaged couples. With this in mind, artist Elizabeth Bonne founded Ruby Charles Designs to create made-to-order invitation suites, each one a unique work of art. Focusing on custom designs allows Ruby Charles to capture each couple's personality and provide guests with a tangible keepsake when they receive their invitations in the mail. Bonne offers a wide range of options to ensure that every suite feels tailor-made, such as one-of-a-kind maps and custom wax seals. Watercolor designs are her specialty, and maps filled with details of the big day and landmarks that are close to a couple's heart are fan favorites. Couples who opt for either of these elements receive a special surprise on their wedding day; the original full-size version of their work of art, which Bonne presents to the new bride and groom as a frame-worthy keepsake.
