I purchased 3 boxes of a DIY invitation at Michael’s about 3 months ago. When I opened up all the boxes this weekend to begin putting on the return address labels for the RSVP envelopes, I discovered that I did not have 3 boxes with ivory “pointy flap” envelopes. I in fact had 1 box of the ivory and 2 boxes with white “square flap” envelopes.
All I could do was chuckle and think it was a good idea I abandoned the envelope liners . . . because my pattern would only have worked for 50 out of the 150 envelopes.
And then I looked over the boxes for some kind of indication that the same invitation suite would have different envelopes (and RSVP cards). Nada.
So, if there’s some less laid-back brides out there (who would care about the differing colors), be warned – check your boxes to make sure they’re all the same.
Or . . . just go with the flow!

Haha, weird!! I’m glad it doesn’t bother you 🙂 Thanks for the tip though, I’m thinking of going the Michael’s route!

Always a good reminder — amazing how many little things there are to check on in DIY projects like that! My process is make the list before going to the store and assess what I’ve got in the basket compared to that list before I leave…and I still find myself in situations like this sometimes. 🙂 Glad you had a good laugh about it.

Well, I think you had the perfect attitude & reaction to it 🙂

I’m even thinking of sending the ivory to my family and the white to his, so when we get the RSVP cards back, I’ll know which side it’s from before even opening the envelope!

I got two different boxes, and the shades of white were different on some of the reply cards. One set looked really ivory. Oh, well. They come back to me anyway!
