Adorable emailed wedding invitations with dinosaurs and monsters

November 10 | meganfinley

Artist Ann Marshall and her husband had quite possibly created the cutest emailed wedding invitations I've ever seen. Seriously, at one point there's an adorable T-rex who photo bombs a picture of a New York city sky line.

You gotta see it! But first I'll let Ann explain their masterpiece:

As an artist, I have high standards to all things visual, but was priced out of the letterpress invitations the etiquette books all said were required for the type of event we were throwing. Not wanting to use a cheaper version of something nicer, we reinvented the paradigm.

Their guests received this first panel in their email inbox, and clicked through to the end, which you should do now:

  1. I love not just the design, but the idea behind it! "Not wanting to use a cheaper version of something nicer, we reinvented the paradigm." YES! That's what it's all about! :D

  2. When parents are single/remarried/deceased, it is often challenging to deal with in invitation wording. In addition to being one of the most creative, personal, unique and adorable invitations I've ever seen, these deal with that challenge in a way that made me smile from ear to ear, and the image representing your husband's father is so sweet it made me a bit emotional. Bravo to you Ann! Truly brilliant!

  15. Oh no! I can't see the invite :(

    The screen say :The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request."

    I wanna see the little dinosaur.

  16. Please, oh please! I neeeeeeeeeeed to see this in its entirety!!!

    Any way to get a hold of Ann Marshall to have her fix the link? I think when she updated her website, the invite got deleted. She would make so many of us insanely happy.
