We loved our save-the-dates so much, that we decided to hire Sarah Parrott to design our invitation suite as well. After stumbling across her blog, A Homegrown Wedding, I feel like she gets our vision even more now. We have very similar taste. Now, onto the invitations…
They will have about five parts to them. Five! I know, that’s a lot. 1) An invitation card, 2) A map, 3) An RSVP card + envelope, 4) A hang tag attached to raffia, and 5) some will have a rehearsal dinner invitation.
In designing these, I really want them to seem connected to our save-the-dates and feel similar to our inspiration stationery. One of the ways we’re doing this is to include another drawing from my very talented husband-to-be, Mr. Cowboy Boot. If ya’ll remember, he drew the horse that adorned our STD postcard. This time, the drawing is of a barn since that’s what our reception will be.

And, while I tried to get Mr. CB to pen some barn swallows and more horses, illustrating wedding invitations doesn’t make him very excited. Thus, I turned to Ms. Parrott to find some coordinating images to use throughout our suite. Here’s what she came up with:
Which are your favorite? Which do you think go best with Mr. CB’s barn?
