So confession time. In case you didn’t notice, I missed #WeddingWednesday last week. Simply because life was crazy & I had market for work, but hey I am not creating excuses for myself 😉 With that being said, I am back & in action with my weekly wedding post today!
Several of you had mentioned that you wanted to see my wedding invitations, so here ya have it! When choosing our invitations I knew I wanted to keep them elegant & classy, yet have a little sparkle. I searched several different wedding websites & finally came across these on Wedding Paper Divas! Better yet, Wedding Paper Divas was having a 40% off sale, so I got these at a pretty good price. Needless to say I may or may not have had these since May! LOL.
The color of the invitations go extremely well with the theme we are going with for our big day. Think glam meets vintage with a tiny hint of rustic [& I mean extremely tiny]! I am having a ton of gold throughout the venue on our wedding day, so these invitations seriously fit perfectly.
I simply included all the necessity details on the invite, but also stuck a “wedding details” card in the envelope, as well. This details card includes everything from the parking at the venue, accommodations for out of town guests & even the attire! I believe this little card helps people get a better idea for the occasion. This is also a great place to put your wedding website if you have one!
Finally, the RSVP card. Looking back, if I could change one thing regarding our invitations it would have been these cards that made it easy for people to acknowledge if they are attending or not. Simply because it was one extra cost having to buy stamps for each card! I mean I should’ve gone the easier & cheaper route & let people RSVP online. Oh well, you live & ya learn! On this card, I also included a space that said _ out of _ are attending. I filled in the second blank with how many people were invited with each invitation. This is an easier and nicer way to let people know if they get a plus one. Since our venue only holds 200 people, we did not give dates to friends who are not in a serious relationship. So, hopefully this made it easier for people to understand 😉
We simply printed the addresses for the envelopes on clear labels at home. I really wanted a calligrapher to address each invitation, but this was something that was not within our budget. And honestly the more I thought about it the more I couldn’t bring myself to pay for it. I mean think back to all of the weddings you’ve been invited to. Can you remember what the envelopes look like? I am going to guess most likely not 🙂
Sadly enough, Wedding Paper Divas is starting a new beginning under Shutterfly. Which is kind of ironic because this is who we bought our save the dates through! I do not believe Wedding Paper Divas look is going to change, but they are going to be called The Wedding Shop under Shutterfly! So if you are on the hunt for invitations, I would suggest looking there.
Thanks for stopping by.
