DIY Wedding Challenge - Invitations


The first of my many DIY projects was my wedding invitation.  I was inspired by an invitation I had previously found online and worked with a graphic artist to re-create the design with a few revisions. We made the background canvas a burnt/pumpkin orange and reversed the copy in white.

Our wedding date was displayed vertically on the right hand side so it would peep out of the Envelopment 5×7 Portable Pocket in “Green Tea.” I bought the “Orange Lotus Blossom” sheets of paper from the Paper Studio and cut them into strips for the belly bands. Lastly custom strips with the floral motif, our names and date were wrapped on top.

In an effort to be environmentally conscious, we chose to have all RSVPs online via our website. We did not have any problems! Here was the RSVP panel info.

We also carried through the font, colors and floral motif through to the menus!

I wanted lace to somehow be incorporated into our “Shabby Chic” theme besides my antique lace wrapped bouquet.  I bought Fiskar’s Lace Border punch and punched the edges of each vellum program cover.

I wanted to carry the lace punch through to our table numbers. So I put my husband to the task.  Check out our twin glue guns!

And this was the final result.
