My colors are Robin Egg Blue & Gold, and I’m having trouble with my pocketfold invites.
I wanted to use lace, so I played around with blue paper and cream colored lace. I’m afraid it might look too babyshower like. Then I tried using cream pearlized paper but I’m not crazy about it either.
What do you think? Blue or Cream invitation?
Any other suggestions on how I could incorporate lace? or should I scratch the whole idea.

They are both really beautiful, and nothing about them says baby shower to me. I like the blue best because it fits the colors of your wedding. They are so very unique.

I like the white one. They look like hard work! Have you thought about doing an embossed lace design? It might give you the look you want without all of the cutting and pasting. And depending on the embosser, you might save some money!

I like the cream one — such a cute idea!

I don’t get abby shower either – I like them both. You know what I was thinking of doing at one point was sending out 2 different invites – same invite, in opposite shades, because I coulnd’t decide which I like more.

I have a suggestion but it might take your invites in another direction….Why don’t you use the lace on the blue card as a belly band? You could even use a thinner cream ribbon that is longer than the lace, lightly glue it down the center and tie the longer thin ribbon in a bow. That way you can have the bow in the front or on the side to keep the invite closed. It would look pretty and wouldn’t be that hard.

Thanks for the feedback! I’m off to AC Moore tomorrow to try the different suggestions. I’ll let you know how it turns out.

If its not too late here is another suggestion as you said gold was one of your colors……For the idea on the belly band and small thin bow, buy small gold wedding band favors to tie into the bow.

I actually like the tiffany blue and perhaps a gold band instead of the white. All the best – lets hear how it all turns out. I am using similar colours but I have chocolate brown pocketfolds, a tiffany blue backing and the invitation itself is in ecru. My even is in the evening – so I wanted a nice formal look.
