DIY: Wedding Invitations



Because I had a little bit of extra time after I made the invitations, I enlisted my mother and sister to help Gocco the ceremony booklets. When they were all done, they became my favorite wedding paper item! *picture added post-wedding




**UPDATE** I revamped the invitation...well...just a little.I rounded the corners. Thanks for the idea Riss!


These are the wraparound labels inspired by those on the Martha Stewart Weddings site. I'll affix these to the bronze envelopes instead of hiring a calligrapher. I would like one but I'd rather spent the money on a honeymoon upgrade :)

I'm outrageous, I know. But I really believe that if you are inspired enough, you can create beautiful decorations that are both elegant and cost-effective. Take a trip with me, won't you, we're a-moving down craft lane...








Invitations:

These are the panel invites I created. The top one is the final version (4x9) and the bottom is my first attempt...a 5x7 panel card.



















These were really a labor or love...and price-consciousness...I enjoyed making them and I just couldn't stop adding elements (i.e. the DIY red pocketfold, ribbon, envelope liner, monogram tag...you get the idea). Knottie BriannaNichole gave me a HUGE hand in learning to navigate Photoshop. I am very grateful! This allowed me to design my invitations my way...and on my own budget :)
