I have gotten a lot of interesting invites (shoe box, playing cards, pop-ups, etc.) but I have never gotten one like this. So simple yet so jaw-dropping. A subpoena!
I was staying at my mom's place and my husband brought the invite there when he picked me up. And because my mom likes to make kalikot, she saw the subpoena. With eyes wide, she asked me if I knew a certain Herbert. I said no since I mostly deal with the brides. Then she said that it must be hers and she's being summoned to court. I have not seen the invite at this point and was quite perplexed. Then it dawned on me that Karla did mention that she and her fiance are lawyers. You guys should see my mom's look of relief! Priceless!
Bravo to Karla & Herbert (a.k.a. Shrub)! No objection there, your Honor!
|Lovely looking and brilliantly executed Subpoena!|
|The only subpoena I did not mind receiving :)|
|How can you not go???|
Karla: Lawyers kasi kami both ni Shrub (her fiance) and we wanted to infuse something related to our profession in our wedding. We both wanted the Subpoena kase in our field, it's the way the court "invites" litigants. Kaya lang sa Pinas, piece of paper lang ang subpoena, minsan sa onion skin pa naka-print pero may sense of "compulsion". We saw an old version of a US Subpoena, dun kami nag-pattern pero we made it a bit rustic to match our wedding theme. We drafted the contents then WINK helped us with the layout. Yung small elements like the clock and the telephone was my idea para lang hindi too formal if purely subpoena style. One of our guests said, "Talaga palang kailangan ko pumunta dito." Another said,"Delikado 'tong mga subpoena na to e."
In general, guests found it unique naman, parang andami raw nangyayari dun sa invite.
Thank you for this, Karla! Rebellious Brides, keep 'em coming!
