After months and months of ordering samples and searching for the perfect invitations, we finally decided on a style and got to work! These were a labor love, that's for sure! Our inspiration came from a featured couple on TheKnot.com (the couple designed their own invitations). I fell in love with them and worked with Etsy designer, Cheerup Cherup, to create our own version of them. She did the invitation, monogram round labels, rsvp & double-sided details card. The rest we did ourselves! We ordered the jacket/pocket sleeves, belly bands & envelopes from Paper Presentation. I purchased the doilies from Etsy seller, Packagery, and I got the twine at Michael's. We purchased a stamp from Etsy seller, Paper Cut Industries, for our return address and rsvp addresses. I printed our guest's addresses directly onto the envelopes (font is Helinda Rook). We are so happy with how they came out and so relieved to finally be done with them!!

OUR Invitation Suite:
This was our process.
Step 1: Spray glue the doilies (let me tell you, tacky spray is not your friend!) We used three doilies per invite. The style doilies we used are called "Cameron" and they are 4".
Step 2: Attach the belly bands with a glue runner and put the Scotch foam mounting tape in the center for the monogram to attach to.
Step 3: Glue the twine to the belly bands and put the monograms on. I have to give major props to my FI for this, he did all the hot gluing and he was a trooper about it!
Step 4: Assembly!
Step 5: Address & stamp.
DONE! Here they are all done and ready to be mailed out!
Two days later we received our first RSVP replies!! YAY!
