So just before the s**t hit the fan here, we got the first bach of our invitations.
Sorry for the bad quality pics from my phone...
We printed the wording an the image on an envelope. Our DJ made us a cd with some retro disco music mix from the 70s, 80s etc to copy and put inside every invitation instead of a normal paper invitation. We got the cds extremely cheap at a wholesale. They ended up costing less than a normal paper invitation would. Plus this way the invitations are double purpose: they introduce the guests to the wedding theme and they will be able to keep them as a memorabilia like a favor.
This is the frond and the back of the invitation. The back has a hole so one can see the cd inside.
So now I will have my girlfriends come over to help with putting the cds in the envelopes so the inviting can begin.
The inviting is probably the most time consuming part of the wedding. In Cyprus is almost an insult to invite someone by mail, mostly because the island is so small -just over two hour’s drive from one end to another- and so both I and FI and our parents will now begin visiting people in order to give them the invitations. Hopefully we will finish a couple of weeks before the wedding.
