@actime:  Nice job!  (I was very confused with your name change. lol. I was like, “wait.. that’s not who I’m replying to! Oh, she changed it.”)

Show us your Invitations? Picture below

Where did you order from? I got mine from 123print.com.  Super cheap!

Did you make or design it yourself?  It’s one of the designs already on the site, but it was exactly what I was looking for if I had to design it myself. 

Where did you get the wording? I looked at numerous examples from several different websites and just messed around until I found wording that fit and worked the best for us.  Our wedding actually starts at 4, but I decided to make it 15 minutes earlier on the invite so that the people who come late, won’t really be late (hopefully!).  I HATE when people are late.  It bugs me like crazy. 

When are you sending them out?  I already sent out all of the invites to FI’s family who are all Out of Town.  I also sent out the invites to a few others who are Out of Town and don’t know anyone local who have yet to get theirs.  I’m sending them out in batches to get an idea of the attendance.  There’s a few more coworkers we really want to invite and not leave out, so once we have a better idea of everyone’s responses, we can then invite the handful of other coworkers.  Our 60 or so coworkers will be the last to receive theirs since we’ll most likely be handing them out.  (I know that’s not very proper, but we don’t have their addresses and it’s just easier to give it to them in person)

@actime:  Lol, the 15 minutes earlier is definitely a good idea!  When I asked the venue manager, she highly recommended doing it.  If people are too early, then oh well.. they can just wait.  Better to be early than late! 

Oops, I just realized you had your whole invite setup, not just the invite itself.  I only have one other piece which is the RSVP and it has the exact same side design as the invite.  So I don’t think I’ll bother posting the RSVP. Lol

@actime:  Thank you!! I love black and white and the damask pattern, and we are going to add splashes of red with roses.

Fiance’s mom will be designing all the paper stuff and signage. She did our save the dates, too. I asked her to take the damask from the save the dates, make it navy and put it at opposite corners and this is what she came up with:

These are not our actual invitations, just the design we chose.  We’re using shimmer silver envelopes instead of the purple pictured.
