I think this is really sweet. You could do a lakefront theme with little fishing boats and willows…..ahhh my imagination with this one 🙂

To me, that design looks like a beach wedding.  Not lakefront.  I’d try to find one with grass and/or trees, because if I got that invitation, I’d be expecting a sandy beach next to an ocean.  Just my two cents.

I think this is a really nice theme.   You can also maintain this theme into your response cards where they have a lake theme also.

@SoontobeMrsA:  If you can find one with a beach but also grass/trees or something, I think that would be more in keeping with your theme.  I’m also getting married on a lake, and I just think that those don’t really go.  I guess if you’re getting married on one of the great lakes and it really does look like that, it could be different.

@SoontobeMrsA: While I think the invitation is adorable I dont think it really goes with a lake wedding – definitely way more beach-y. We got married on a lake and our invitations were not lake-themed at all. Actually all of our paper products had dandelions on them that looked like they were being blown in the wind. Where did you find that invitation and how much are you looking to spend? I would love to help you out and scour the web for some cute lake invitations (yes, I miss wedding planning sometimes!)

On the topic of dandelion invites, I sort of fell in love with these awhile back.  They’re from Kinkos (I know, I know) but they have lots of paper options and customizable text.  Anyway, I think they’re beautiful, still fun and whimsical but also elegant.

@SoontobeMrsA: sure! The woman I used was LittleLadyBugPress on Etsy – Im sure she would be willing to work with you to create something you love. She was WONDERFUl to work with!

 

Our programs (these were DIY from a template)

 

The Etsy seller created that monogram for us as well 🙂

PitbulLover’s are way fancier than the ones I saw, though I’m guessing these are cheaper.  Here’s a pic, although I did get the link to work.

@SoontobeMrsA: Yes, they did double as fans! They were pretty easy to make, but time consuming. It was 95 degrees on our wedding day so our guests did use them though! Actually there are 2 pictures and if I click back and forth between the two it looks like people are fanning themselves! Even my bridesmaids used them while standing up!  Our invitations were $2.75 per invite and the RSVP card was a postcard so that was cheaper. We ordered 130 invitations and including postage it came out to less than $500. I’m sure that the seller would be willing to come up with something less expensive for you. She is so nice and worked with me every step of the way completely customizing to my tastes. She has a lot of really pretty and colorful invitations!

 

@Miss OBG: I think those are really pretty!
