Stationary has been a roller coaster ride for me. I *love* paper products and have seriously made about 15 sample invitations. I have a constant tug of war with myself to make our Save the Date invitations either fun, or quirky, or elegant, or modern, or seasonal.. you name it, I have thought long and hard about it. I finally decided to incorporate both- an elegant invite that plays up our wedding colors, and a bright, fun magnet for the fridge. Here is my final product:
Each invite was printed on ivory cardstock, gold embossed stamp, and mounted on bronze metallic carstock. The bronze metallic envelopes were hand addressed in gold ink and lined with personalized ivory cardstock (it says save the date repeatedly on one line and the other says ryan and claudia repeatedly.
