You may not know this, but Rapunzel is my favorite Disney princess! I love her spirit and her heart. And her love of the arts!
I jumped at the chance to design an invitation for a Tangled themed wedding! I bought books about the art of the movie to dive deep into its conception and learn more about the background of its artwork.
My concept of the invitation artwork was inspired by Rapunzel’s hair when her and Flynn go into town. The top left florals wrap around behind the main part of the invite, and end at the bottom right. I threw in a bird and butterfly for good measure and then lined the edge of the circle with gold metallic dots to represent the lanterns that the town lights each year.
And then on the details page, I painted a yellow lily-like flower to represent the flower that gives Rapunzel’s hair its healing powers.
While these details are subtle and may be missed by the average viewer, I loved creating them and wanted to give the suite an added depth that only the strongest Rapunzel fans may notice and appreciate.
But one of my favorite details in the stationery was the addition of a golden sun wax seal! It’s so very subtle but adds that royal look of the sun logo from the movie.
