our WEDDING INVITES!

August 20, 2012

/  /  photo's & invitations by me... the fashion gal  /  /

the invites are out... which means this fashion gal & that fireman are officially gettin hitched! when it came to the invitations i wanted to keep things simple, but original and us. i wanted our invitations to set the tone of our wedding and give our guests an idea of what to expect at our big day. so i ordered a simple square rounded edge kraft invitation with a matching rectangle RSVP card from Wedding Paper Diva's. then to add a little homemade touch I bought {& cut} gold foil polka-dotted papers that laid in between the two kraft papers, wrapped the three papers with a mint & white bakers twine, and finished it off with a homemade ((hand typed)) tag that our wedding website was on. once it was sealed with a stamped return envelope, glued shut, and sprinkled with a little gold glitter, i then did my best semi-calligraphy and topped the invite with mixed matched stamps. and........ ta-da!

check them out...
t h e   d e t a i l s...
1. RSVP Card- I added a fun (& helpful) question, "What song gets you moving on the dance floor?"
2. Extras- These three pieces (the mint & white bakers twine, typed out accommodations tag, and a little sprinkled gold glitter made our invites all that more special... and have a semi homemade touch!
(side-note: the gold glitter was lightly sprinkled on the back closer of the envelope)
3. Mixed & Matched Stamps- I think this small detail adds an eccentric and pretty touch.
4. A Little Mint- The slight pop of mint in the " V & T " and throughout made our invites a little more modern.

So gorgeous! I'm designing my invitations myself as well and have been feeling so frustrated lately. This has been a great inspiration to get me going again. Where did you get the gold foiled polka dot paper? I'd appreciate the tip. Thanks!
