We now come to the last detail of the Bracelet invitation suite. It’s not the most romantic part of our invitations, but definitely among the very important ones: Our information sheet.
I wanted to include all kinds of useful information for our guests, so I decided to make a trifold leaflet myself. A single card wouldn’t have had enough space. I bought nice printer paper and created a horizontal Word document with three columns. I used the full length of the paper, but kept the height in line with our invitation envelopes’ width. The fonts I used were our “wedding fonts,” Edwardian and Mrs Eaves Petite Caps, as well as Garamond.
We included the following sections:
It’s a bit difficult to envision the final product by just looking at my Word screenshots below. When our guests opened a folded leaflet, they were greeted by “wedding weekend” and “accommodations” on the left panel and “contact information” and “homepage” on the right panel. Once they folded open the right panel, they got the full inside view.
The sheets needed to be cut to size (to fit into the envelopes) and to be folded, so one afternoon many moons ago MOH R and I got together to cut all the information leaflets. MOH R was so awesome as to supply her parents’ paper cutter—I don’t think we could have done this project without it!
You might be wondering what the light box in the photo above has to do with the leaflets? Well, folding the sheets was tedious business, especially trying to align the columns neatly…? Yeah. Difficult. Which is when I remembered my light box (made circa 2000 by my dad as a Christmas gift when I was still heavy into painting and sketching). Being able to see through the paper enabled us to align anything perfectly!
Did you include an information card in your invitation? If so, what format did you choose?
