Whether we accept it or not, millennials are now going into adulthood. Some of them are finally getting married; and they're making their own rules when it comes to wedding planning.
I, myself, am a millennial. But my mind's not into marriage yet. I don't have a Pinterest album for my future wedding. I don't know yet where my dream wedding would take place nor have I partially daydreamed about the reception. So when a friend's sister, Kristine, first asked me if I could do her wedding invitations, I had no idea why she chose me.
I've already helped Kristine and my friend with graphic design for a handful of projects by the time she approached me with her request. She also knew from my Instagram that I practiced brush lettering as a hobby. And you would say, well, there's the reason why she chose you!
But I also knew that, like any responsible bride-to-be would do, she and her fiancée, Harold, have gone to wedding fairs and got most of their suppliers from there. She has gone on the internet and researched like crazy like any millennial bride is expected to do.
She is well aware of the biggest names in the Philippine Wedding Invitation Industry and yet here she is choosing me.
