I already showed you my envelopes, so now it is time for the good stuff—the invitation itself.
The main invitation is adhered to a gold pocket, and when you flip it over you see:
When you take the cards out of the pocket this is what you see:
I wrote in the number of invited people so no one would get confused and think we wanted them to bring their sort-of boyfriend or their long-lost cousin or their kids.
I then used an invisible pen to write a number on the corner of each card in case someone forgot to put their name, and I am sad to say I’ve already needed to use it.
I worked with Amanda at Karmanos Printing and Graphics to turn my inspiration into reality. I cannot say enough good things about working with her. She never made me feel bad for being a typical bride and changing my mind or wanting things done a specific way. Their prices were shockingly reasonable. The process was so much easier than I planned, and I am so grateful I chose them.
The invitations came in a lot of pieces and I had to do quite a bit of work to get them together:
I did the majority of the work during a Saints preseason game while sipping champagne, which made it go by much faster.
So there you have it! I love them and I have received a lot of compliments on them, which is always nice. They set the tone for the wedding, which was my main goal.
Did your invitations set the tone for your wedding?
