    I love your original idea with the invites, and I think it would be beautiful and unique!

    I think they wuld look beautiful on the invite, but laminating is probably a good idea to ensure they travel safely. Try mailing one to yourself to make sure they come though ok.

    You can buy self laminating paper at any office supply store and it’s super easy to use.

    By the way, all I can come up with at the moment is “Love is in bloom.”  Maybe I need more coffee.

    Ive just written a piece on this for style collective that will hopefully be up soon, but how about just spraying them with some clear spray sealer for protection and then glue them onto invitations, order of services, menus etc.

    No I dont think so, if you press them well so they are nice and flat and glue them on should be fine. Make sure the invite paper you glue them too is nice and thick too, at least 90lbs.

    Could always go for a gatefold or pocket fold invite so there is an extra bit of paper over the top to protect them. Laughing
