Since, a lot of you know me now and how I’m super close to my wedding date! (OMG!)
I wanted to post my invitations for you here on the local boards. I have to say they came out better than I even envisioned! I’m glad Mr. Holiday pushed for the wax and we added the ribbon look. They took a long time but so worth it in my opinion!
The ribbon was a pain in the behind. We fell in love with this gray velvet ribbon, but we couldn’t get enough. So we had to buy some different ribbon like half way through the “stuffing” party. 🙂
What do you think? 🙂

awesome. Any special tips on the wax seal? I’ll be doing mine this weekend. I’m assuming it is glue gun wax. Did you put the seals directly on the envelopes, or make them on a glass plate and tansfer them later?

Aww! Thanks ladies! We had an amazing team and these are all DIY, we did have a friend at a printing shop, that printed them and cut them for free. That didn’t suck 🙂 I’m just so in love with them! One of my bridesmaids did the graphic work, Mr. Holiday and I picked out all the wording, color, weight and information to add, and my mother and I picked out the ribbon. It was a village effort 🙂
@Jacqi The wax! omg I’m so glad I had someone that worked with wax before in my group. She had all these tricks!
1. Keep the sealer in a glass of ice water and of course dab it dry before you put it on the wax, but it keeps the wax from sticking to the sealer and pulling off.
2. Put a blob in a circular motion and a lot! We did about nickel width and maybe two high.
3. We did use a glue gun, high temperature one. And we did it directly on the ribbon, invites. We did put a dab of wax on the ends of the ribbon to keep it from sliding around.
Oh and DON”T touch the edges of the wax for a good 3 to 5 minutes.
