First of all, I KNOW that our invites should have gone out much earlier than now. I cannot believe it didn’t really hit me until this past week that—HELLO—our RSVP date is at the end of this month, and our guests have yet to receive the invitation! Bad bride! Maybe I was just too sad to part with them because I am so in love with them. Mr Frenchie is lucky I met him before these invitations (or I met these invites because of him) because it would be hard to choose between the two. (Honey, I am kidding, of course.)
This Sunday, Mr Frenchie, Mama Frenchie, Sister Frenchie, and I sat around Mama Frenchie’s dining room table and knocked these puppies out. (As a Bulldog I’m not sure I should be using that saying.)
Our friendor Joe had our birdie design printed on contact paper. I took the backing off the top inch (which was scored), put the still backed part in the envelope, and then stuck the sticky side down right below the glue part of the envelope. It was super easy!
I then handed the envelopes off to Mama Frenchie who would number the backs of all the RSVP cards with each guest’s corresponding number from our spreadsheet. This way if anyone forgets to put their name on the reply card, we can figure out who they are.
Next, Mama Frenchie handed them off to Sister Frenchie, who put a queen stamp on all the reply envelopes and stuffed the whole suite inside.
Early in the week I had printed our address on all the reply envelopes using my trusty (knock-on-wood) HP printer.
As you can see, I had to tape every envelope to a piece of paper because it was too tiny to feed through my envelope slot. This is how the pros do it, right?
After everything was inside the envelope, Mr Frenchie sealed the outer envelope with a wet sponge and affixed the SUPER CUTE wrap-around return address sticker. He then passed it back to me and I put the king stamp on the outside.
Here is what they look like as you open them (it pains be to cover up the info, it is so pretty)…
Didn’t BM F do a beautiful job?
The sticker isn’t completely stuck down on this one because it is the back of Sister Frenchie’s invite. On the rest of the invites, the wrap-around label lies flat.
The reception and morning after breakfast RSVP cards tear off to be mailed back, so the guest can keep the directions and accommodations cards.
So there you have it hive, the French Bulldog invitations! My DOC loves them so much that she wants me to send one to her so she can spend time with it. She wanted to know if that was weird, but I saw nothing wrong with it because, as you know, I wanted to marry them.
How close was your RSVP deadline to your invitations’ mailing date?
