Thank you everyone for all the nice words and compliments on our invitations! My minions and I truly appreciate all the love!
You’re probably tired of hearing me wax poetic about our invitations by now, but I wanted to wrap up Squid invitation week with assembly, a budget recap, and some final thoughts.
Because invitation headquarters was at my parents’ house in New Jersey and we live in NYC, I tried to identify DIY tasks that could be done during the work week in our studio so that we could be super-efficient with our time in New Jersey. Turns out, addressing the outer and inner envelopes and prepping RSVP cards were pretty much the only things that could be done on a TV tray. It actually streamlined the assembly process to have the envelopes pre-addressed with the corresponding RSVP card tucked into each envelope.
I did a bit of research on if there was a proper way to assemble a wedding invitation. I figured some etiquette guru out there had determined the “correct” way to present all the pieces, and sure enough Invitations by Dawn had a handy dandy visual aid.
