I am wanting to make my own invitations. Our theme is very rustic, and I have somewhat of an idea of what I want. I want to include burlap into our invitations, maybe just as a backing to the actual invitation. I was also thinking of using the ideas I have seen as button boutonnieres on my invitations. Does anyone have any ideas? I have searched and searched, but can’t seem to fine what I’m looking for. I don’t want to weigh my invites down with buttons, but I’d really like to incorporate them somehow.

I think that would be a really cute idea.
Be aware, anything that makes an invitation “non-machinable” adds to the cost of postage. I have a pearl bead embellishment on the belly band around my invite suite and it ends up costing me 20 cents extra per invite for postage.
Letters that meet one or more of the nonmachinable characteristics below are subject to the $0.20 nonmachinable surcharge. For items over 3.5 ounces, see Large Envelope or Package.
- It is a square letter (the minimum size for a square envelope is 5 x 5 inches.)
- It is too rigid – does not bend easily
- It has clasps, string, buttons, or similar closure devices
- It has an address parallel to the shorter dimension of the letter
- It contains items such as pens that cause the surface to be uneven
- The length divided by height is less than 1.3 or more than 2.5

Type in “button invitation” or “button wedding” into Google images: it gives a lot of inspiration!
