Fact: I am not a photographer and REALLY wish I was. Please look past the fact that some of these aren’t in focus and that they’re still a little more “yellow” than I’d like. I took them in as much natural light as I could find.
Putting these together took a long time, but I’m extremely happy with the way they turned out and the comments I’ve received about them have been overwhelmingly positive!
Since our printer at home isn’t designed for printing invitations, we had Bridget print some of the pieces with a thermography style, which is a fancy way of saying some of the copy is raised on the paper. It looks extremely sharp in person.
This is what our guests received in the mail. Since we sent them out just after Christmas, I didn’t want them to be confused with Christmas cards, so I picked out “cotton candy” envelopes. The USPS also had wedding-cake stamps!
Then! After everything was printed and ready to go, I remembered an aspect I really wanted to include. Since we have a lot of our bridal party coming in from out of town, I wanted to put a little card in about the rehearsal dinner, just to let them know that it’d be great if they could come into town the Friday before. So, after slaving away on Word, I came up with these:
Meet at the Chapel
at 5 pm on the dot,
where Jessica and Kenny
will soon tie the knot.
After the practice,
when all is said and done,
please join us for dinner
for food, drinks, and fun!
Here’s the whole shebang:
So there you have it! Our invitations 🙂 I may post a price breakdown later, but that’s only if people are interested in that. I also took pictures along the way of us assembling them. I say, “us,” because there was a point when Kenny was up to his ears in having pink cardstock all over our living room!
