- Wedding: August 2017
I apologize if this post comes off as braggy or in poor taste– I’m just so excited about my invitations!
It was love at first sight when I found this design on Minted. Our wedding is a modern romantic style with blush and cream and gold geometric accents so this was perfect! I limited the number of inserts in our invitation suite (just the invitation, RSVP card and envelope) to save money because the foil printing was putting us near the top of our invitation budget. When I received my order I felt a little underwhelmed… the quality was amazing but it felt a little unfinished.
Meanwhile, my mom kept mentioning that a bunch of relatives kept asking her about our website because they lost our STD. So the idea struck to add a belly band/hang tag type thing with the website info to (literally) tie everything together. I ordered 100 business cards from Vistaprint for $10 and bought 60 yards of gold string from JoAnn for $3. I hand-cut the hexagons, poked the holes using thumbtacks, and tied everything together.
I’ll be sitting on these for another 2 weeks (waiting until the 10 week countdown to send them out), but I’m so eager to share these!
