I have no idea where you would get the invitations, but that is a really neat idea. I think if you can try and include them on the non-visual things. Like the menu, maybe cake tasting asking for their input on readings would help include them more. Also I don’t think you should be afraid to discuss visual things with them as well. I am sure they would love to just hear what your vision (sorry if that is an inapropriate way to put it) is for the day.

I think it’s great that you want to involve FI’s parents. I agree with MrsKesslertobe even though they won’t be able to see, explain your vision of flowers, centerpieces etc. Take them cake tasting..yum! Maybe if you need to interview bands they can sit in on that?

Also I think it is amazing that you are doing braille and I’m hoping would mean a lot to them that you were thinking of them when you made your decision.

It sounds like you’re being very thoughtful.  Yes, a lot of it is visual, but like others said, there are some things where maybe their enhanced senses may help out a lot (tastings, music, etc.). 

As far as invitations, I did a google search and found this: http://www.shadowsinthedark.com/Services/invitations.htm

Another option may be to contact an Etsy dealer and maybe all of the invitations could also include braille underneath/above the words.
