Invitation Inspiration

I’ve mentioned before that I’m designing our invitation suite. And, y’all, it’s finished and it’s legendary. I love them. I can’t wait to get the prints so I can show them off! In the meantime, I’ve decided to show you some of the invitation ideas that inspired me. We pulled bits and pieces from some of these to create our suite and added in our own elements as well.

Oooooh I want so badly to show y’all our design now! How am I going to be able to keep it a secret? I am bad at holding in things I’m excited about!

What inspires you?
