- Wedding: June 2014
So, here are the pieces of our invitation suite. Can you please look them over for any glaring errors or ugliness? I mean, I like the design and have spent A LOT (A LOT) of time of them, so don’t say anything too mean, but maybe if there is something small and easy to fix point it out to me. But if it’s remotely difficult to fix, or really freaking small, don’t tell me.
So first up – the papers. We’re (flat) printing on Cream Puff from Cards and Pockets, and will be using a Cream Puff outer envelope and probably a cream puff inner envelope. Or maybe a velum envelope. Or a gold one. Or something. Haven’t decided yet, waiting for my hard copy proofs to decide. And we’re going to use a liner of some sort (again, haven’t decided), and maybe a belly band because FI likes them randomly.
Oh, and for those interested, I designed these using Open Office Draw, and the script font is Lavanderia Regular, and the serif is FoglihtenPCS (both free via dafont IIRC).
So, here’s the main invitation (5×7):
Then we have our Map/Direction card (double sided) (4×6). Honestly, the whole purpose of this was so we could share our wedding website. And that map was a PITA to make. OMG.
Next is the RSVP card, which will have an envelope in emerald green that matches the green printing. It’s 3.5×5 (or whatever the 4bar size is.
Then, THE BEST PART!
Our teeny tiny reception cards. They’ll be placed in a 2.5″ square envelope in antique gold (from paper presentation), and they’ll be embossed with “and then we celebrate” in our script font. I seriously am dying over this detail and it’s my favorite part. Even though I’ll probably hate the embossing by the time it’s all said and done. So yes, these cards are small, but dang it, I love that part.
BLAMO! Also, I totally just posted these becasue I want people to tell me they like them. Everyone IRL (my mom, FI, and BMs) are tired of hearing me talk about them.
