Now that our invitations are all out and we’re just waiting on those straggler RSVPs I can showcase my hard work!!
The first step, choose a theme….We wanted a garden party so my wonderful graphic designers at work printed out a 20 some flowers and I came home to hand color them.
From there, we scanned in the flowers and Rich my designer placed them so perfectly throughout the invitation suite. Within the suite, was the invitation, rsvp with envelope, directions/accommodations (with a map on the back) and for a few people a rehearsal dinner and Sunday brunch invitation. We chose a golden pearl linen cover stock for the pocket and a stardust pearl white for the inserts. I love that Rich was able to find a font that had little flowers growing around the capitals in our names…similar to the way chapters started in really old books.
It took my Mom and I with the help of my friend Kristen two whole days to assemble the invitation suite and address all 156 envelopes.
I’m very fortunate to work at a printing company, I was with the project from start to finish. I was there when we cut down all the pieces to size, I was able to perforate the rehearsal dinner and brunch invitations and create the gold pocket fold with the green ribbon, I did (almost) all of it and if feels great!
I love using the shrink wrapping machine! So there they are, our invitations, I’m so happy with them and that they are unique!
