When all is said and done after all the oooohing and aaaahing over pretty wedding invites, I managed to get 300 of ours printed, flat-front/back, reply postcards and envelopes for about $350.TOTAL.
Tis good to know people! Thank you CHRIS from the COPY STORE!
And my dear friend Heather was so, so, so wonderful and took about 5 of my different crazy ideas and made one cohesive VERY CHUCK/JEN design for us as a shower gift. Bless her heart—they are just perfect! I’m so nerdily excited for our friends/family to get them!
Even better? The invites were sized to use a normal FOREVER stamp without additional postage.
I’ll post the design in a few weeks…stay tuned.
But for now, thank you Heather & Chris!
Here’s a few samples of invites I really enjoyed…our invitation is a sort of kind of blend of some of these elements sort of maybeish.
Wow. Little did I know how
indecisive MULTIdecisive I would become when it came down to deciding on an invitation! There are so, so, so many beautiful ideas out there in the world. Can you say letterpre$$? I’ve had a hard time narrowing down my options. I want all the options!!!
A while ago I asked my friend Heather if she would design our wedding invitation and she graciously agreed. (Thank you Heather!) Of course, this means we had to formulate an idea. I narrowed down my many options to about four and sent them over to He Who Makes Me Smile to get his opinion. He had one specific like out of the four…which SHOULD have made me happy and decisive! But instead, it made me go back and look for even MORE inspiration.
I know, I know.
I realize the invitation is something that no one will remember. I can’t remember what my friends invites looked like. But you see, I want people to remember our invitation—I want it to represent US as a quirky couple and our awesome fun casual wedding weekend. Hahaha. Yes, I know this isn’t going to happen…but I can hope, right? So it’s been a really fun search and search and more of a search. But I’m happy to report I’m very, very close. (I have to be those babies are gonna need to go to print soon!)
Now with that said…you have to see how creative people are in the world!
Wedding SEED package invitation
Tea Towel Invitations – I actually priced these…but since they are made in the UK and very popular they no longer ship to the US. Boo.
Email from BFF to me and He Who Makes Me Smile: I FOUND YOUR WEDDING INVITATIONS! You can thank me later.
