Bookish Invites At Last!

You saw the inspiration. You saw my scribbly sketches. You saw the start of Ms. Giraffe’s work, and some progress. You’ve read about printing the envelopes. Now you get to see the whole thing, revealed at last!


The websites I’ve found say that only British citizens will receive replies from Her Majesty. I’m hoping that being from “the colonies” will work in our favour, plus Cinnamon Buns and I do both have dual citizenship, as our parents were born in the UK.


Can I just say how sad it was to blur stuff out? They’re so pretty and I made them ugly with my need for privacy and not being stalked! Sad face.


H <3 P !! I love it!


I’m a big fan of how the belly band doesn’t cover up any information, just our silhouettes! After looking at so many sideways photos of myself trying to find the right one, I realised that I actually have a very flat profile/face. It made me sad for a little bit, but I got over it. Cinnamon Buns’ looks just like him though!



Our info card. Yes, we are not inviting children. Yes, we put it right there on the invite suite. Luckily, we don’t know too many people who have children (or children under 20, anyway!) so we’ll only actually be ”˜offending’ about 2 people. And I do believe that all parents deserve a night off! We tried to be funny in the wording with that one.


RSVP card, with green envelope behind, addressed in our pretty pretty font.


We tried out some book-y wording (thanks for all your help with that!) but we ended up loving the ”˜bells’ wording. And I love that Miss G worked a little handbell in there, too cute! I hope we get a few cards returned with people’s art on the back.




Love that font.

I just have to say that none of this, absolutely none of this would have been possible without the amazing work of Miss Giraffe. We are so happy with what you made for us, G! Love!

    They look amazing! Miss Giraffe did such a great job! And you guys did, too!
    I ALMOST used the same bell wording on our RSVP cards, but I just couldn’t get it all to fit. So glad someone else is doing it! I love that. :)
