Those are stunning! Love how you incorporated your theme without it going over the top. 

Here’s an example of ours – perfect for our ivory and gold fall wedding.

This is our set! So proud with how they turned out! They were a lot of work, but it really paid off (minus our typo issue, but its our one thing that has to go wrong with a wedding ha) 🙂

Our theme is james Bond in oriental spring so that’s why my FH and I had to comprise on the colors gray and pink.  he wanted James Bond, I wanted Japanese spring because I’m in love with cherry blossoms.  This is what I came up with when I designed it on photoshop. 

It is square and going on a very sparkly glitter lace-style background heavy cardstock like the second picture below (from my inspiration set of pictures), expect the glitter lace cardstock is silver and minus the bow.

I haven’t made the invitations yet, but they’ll be following the tone set in the STD’s. They look tragically hand-made compared to everything else posted, but I like a hands-on approach to organising my wedding, not to mention the money it’s saving! And sure, they’re not all technically the same size, and if you took a spirit level to some of them it might not be perfect (that’s for making my FI help, and not wanting to discourage him!) but they’re good enough for me! Though when we sent one to my FBIL, he said the names were the wrong way round! If I’m spending hours choosing fonts and cutting birds and gluing card, then my darn name is coming first! *Girl power!*

I’ve been really shopping around for my paper goods.  I haven’t found anything as far as Menus/Programs/Place Cards that I loved.  My invitations are perfect but I started to DIY my menus and place cards.  I will also DIY my programs but I haven’t settled on a design for them just yet.  As of now I have my invites and am working on my menus.

 

Let me know what you think! (Don’t mind the wrinkled menu. They were heat treated and settle down after cooled)

MrsMcInnis2Be:  I love your invites!!  They sort of match my save dates!!  Could you share where you ordered them from?  This is the closest that I have seen so far, that I like.  I’ll share a photo of our “save the dates”…Hopefully, that can count towards showing off our invites?  I apologize, in advance, if this is not a place for that.  They just came in 2 days ago.  Super excited!!  And again, I love your invites!!  Congratulations, they are well done!

MrsMcInnis2Be:  Wow! Although, I am really disappointed that I can’t order something similar, I’m even more impressed with your skills!!  I love DIY!!  My ideas and creativity are usually awesome but when it comes to the actual execution…ehh, not so much.  You should do a step by step blog post…or did you by chance follow one in particular?

serenitykittie:  Thanks! It helps being a graphic designer. Just my job. lol 🙂 Just happy to share the love and give inspiration!  I just designed the printed sections, did a little math with how I wanted our invitations layers, and went with it. 🙂 I decided I wanted our invtations as a 5×7 and them figured I wanted 1/8 or .25 (can’t remember now)  inch border of each the sparkle, and foil, went a cutting!
