Wedding Invitations!


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.

a few of the flowers I colored

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!

all printed!

I love using the shrink wrapping machine! So there they are, our invitations, I’m so happy with them and that they are unique!


Project Wedding.


When Rob and I first got engaged I was anti wedding website.  I thought it was just one more thing for the bride to be to worry about, guests will get invitations they’ll have everything they need to know…why bog them down with one.more.wedding.item?

Turns out…wedding websites are actually pretty helpful.  With everyone so busy, it’s nice to to give fair warning and to help guests with hotel accommodations.  Unless you are our close family or went to college with us, you wouldn’t know how we met or who our wedding party is.

wedding website

I didn’t really search around for sites to use but my friend Stephanie did! Stephhas the same job as I do ANNNNNNND is getting married the same day as me, but in Iowa! It’s fun to keep track with each other of what we’re up with wedding plans as well as what we’re working on at work.  She had done research on which site to use, made a projectwedding site, so I thought I should, too. Thanks for all your hard work Steph!

Here is our site! Take a look! Hope it helps with planning :)
