Now that our guests have received their invitations (a few weeks ago actually), I’m excited to debut my creations to the blogging world. I seriously love how they turned out! After everything was put together, they looked even better than I imagined. I wish the pictures conveyed that better :(
I designed them all in PowerPoint. They were definitely a labor of love... each piece of cardstock was adhered to the one under it with double-sided tape. That's 50 invitations and 150 inserts, but it didn't seem that bad because we spread out the work whenever we had a free evening.
I had them printed at The Printman Design Workshop on Freeport Blvd. I originally went to FedEx Kinko's but they were kind of jerks so I just walked into Printman because I had driven by before. They were so nice and I love them!
Here’s the front of the invitation.
And that ribbon goes around the back to hold all the inserts.
We have three inserts – an RSVP card and envelope, a reception card and a card for the barbecue we’re having the day after the wedding.
And like our Save the Dates, I had to have an envelope liner for the inner envelope. Had to! I liked this paper because it looks like ocean waves, and we’re getting married right next to the ocean.
We’re also getting married next to a lighthouse, so I got this lighthouse stamp on eBay for the inner envelopes. The stamp will be used on our programs too.
I had to remind myself that nobody cares about stamps when the post office was out of lighthouse stamps for our RSVP envelopes. But seriously how perfect would that have been?!
