@RockStar33:  Love your invites! How did you make them? I would like to do something similar if it isn’t too hard!

Our table numbers! I scoured local thrift stores for months to find vintage high quality frames. We also made a frame for our photobooth, flips flops and guestbook. After we had chosen our favorites we painted them all antique gold and cut and fit all the numbers (gold foil cards). Not incredibly complicated when it comes to DIY but it took a lot of research and running around to get it all to come together.

Oops! clicked ok too soon. Too many to post, but I really liked how the painted vases, paper flowers, and the escort card pinwheels turned out. And, my pinwheel ceremony backdrop. THAT took forever!

It was a grueling process, hahah.. to be quite honest… my DH did all the glueing of the burlap, i did the decorating and inserts.  

we had no instructions to go off of unfortunately so it was trial and error for us.   The simplest way i can explain is we cut 2 pieces of cardboard to the size we wanted the invite, then we cut the burlap and placed the cardboard on it with a space in the middle where it folds… then we glued the burlap around it with hot glue… let it dry, then we decorated next, we picked up the supplies at a craft store and fabric store, hot glued it on and let it dry, then we cut the pocketfold to size and glued it on as well as the invitation part, and voila.  

It only took us a long time because since we started months and months ahead of time, we would do like 10 at a time, then leave it for a couple weeks, then do 10 more…. etc.
