The paper elements were all DIY. I worked with a friend to come up with the design for the invitations and save the dates and we printed them ourselves.
Each of our paper products contained this image in some shape or form:
SAVE THE DATES:
Here were the supplies…
They were printed on paper, then mounted on brown and then teal cardstock (from Papersource).
See that little jewel in the upper left hand corner? That was my idea. They needed a little bling! I bought some “diva” iron on jewels and with tweezers, applied them to each one.
We bought a kit at Target, but basically threw everything away except for the envelopes.
The actual invitation:
All put together:
Yes, I invited the President. He actually wrote back with a congratulatory note too!
The Back: (I made custom stickers to seal them with).
There they are going off to the post office! (I totally asked a stranger to take this picture!)
BRIDAL PARTY CARDS:
We made our own cards to ask our friends to be in the bridal party.
Groomsmaid! (Irving designed and created this card all on his own!
EJ was on Irving’s side, so we made up the term “Groomsmaid”. haha
Everything else for the wedding was coordinated to match our invitations:
-Rehearsal Dinner Menus
-Out of Town Welcome Letter
-Welcome Banner for Ballroom
