- Wedding: August 2012
I’m so excited, our invitation paper arrived today by courier! We bought tree-free, recycled cotton and silk paper invites (can you believe they were the cheapest option I could find, and eco-friendly?), and they come with packages of vellum paper and outer envelopes.
We are printing and assembling ourselves. We are making gatefolds for them to make a little more special, and we got handmade hemp paper in gorgeously rich colours. Started cutting them tonight too. It’s going to be an ongoing job for the next week or two I’m sure.
So now I realize that we need to finalize our invite wording. I had fairly traditional wording, and now I’m think of adding some fun. Our wedding will be a bit whimsical and offbeat anyway.
Together with their parents,
invite you to celebrate the beginning
of two lives united forever in love
