Here are the invitations that Signatures By Sarah made for me... I ordered the invitation and 3 inserts: Accommodations, Map/Directions, and RSVP. I was going to have the RSVP be a postcard but Sarah was nice enough to let me know that it would be smaller than a standard postcard and some people have reported that they got lost, so I changed my mind and decided I'd include an envelope with them. They are actually the same invitation that my bridesmaid friend co-worker Christy had for her wedding, but Sarah did make a few changes to them for me... first she did them in my wedding colors (black, white, pink & grey), then she added some flowers to the corners of my inserts, and I also used different wording. Once I got the invitations printed, I decided to "dress them up" a little by adding some bling:
before the "bling" after the "bling"
At first I wasn't sure if I liked how the "bling" looked - I thought it might be considered ghetto. But the more I looked at it, the more I really liked it... I feel like it made them pop! :)
I mounted the invitations onto an onyx colored Signature Pocketfold that I ordered from Cards and Pockets (I love how shimmery they look!). I also had one of my favorite pictures of us printed in black & white as a wallet size and used black adhesive photo corners that I got from the craft store to attach the pictures to the invitations.
As a closure for the front of the invitations, I had one of my monograms (I think this one is my favorite!) printed on white cardstock and then I double-mounted it first onto a shimmery silver cardstock (I think it looks great with the shimmery onyx pocketfold!) and then onto a pink cardstock that was pretty close to the "watermelon" color of the bridesmaid dresses. I attatched them to the front of the invitation with double-sided tape.
ready for stuffing! :)
my girls Myrtle & Molly were very eager to "help" with the invitations! :)
all ready to be mailed out! I dropped them off at the Post Office after work on January 14th...
... and we got our first RSVP back on January 18th... a yes! :)
The invitations turned out to be ALOT more work than I had anticipated but I LOVE the way they turned out so it was definitely worth all the trouble. Everyone has raved about how much they love them too, which makes me feel really good! :)
