My Fiance and I are on a pretty tight budget so we are trying to do as much as we can ourselves to cut costs, but also trying to keep things polished and pretty. We’re having an outdoor vintage garden wedding and decided to take on the task of designing and making our own invitations.
Here’s our sample, I would love your input and constructive criticism before we start putting them all together.
**The Bee logo in the middle is the same as my icon, we designed it ourselves and has sentimental meaning. 1. We’re both a bit ocd and dislike when things aren’t symmetrical so using his Monogram “B” wouldnt work for us. 2. When we first met everyone would simply call him by his last name instead of his first name so overtime my nickname for him became simply “Bee”. Throughout our relationship I would have cute little bee necklaces or other bee items that would remind me of him in a sweet and subtle way so we thought we would keep that and use the Bee.**

Thank you! I purchased almost everything at Paper Source, except for the lace & riboon, those I purchased online, it’s actually a strip of the same paper used for the envelope liner that has the lace over it and then the ribon over the lace and the wax seal on top.
Here’s the link for the wax seal & wax… http://www.paper-source.com/cgi-bin/paper/stationery/waxes-seals.html
