Here is mine.
Here is mine.
I don’t have a shot ready, but I have to chime in. Our invitations were 5×7 8-page minibooks.. and we sent them off with ONE stamp! We had an online RSVP for our save the dates, so we did get to avoid the rsvp card/envelop insert.
I was able to send mine with just the regualr stamp. I designed them myself. Got the paper at paperandmore.com, printed them at FedExOffice and cut and assmbled them at home. Not sure of the cost though.
The text was printed on regular wieght pearlscent paper and attached to a cardstock weight folded card. The envelope was pearlscent to match the paper and we did online RSVP so there was no response card. I also printed address and return address labels on clear labels at home. (they add weght too) The only photo I have of the invites is a collage with another sign, so that had nothing to do with the invites!
I did one sheet 5×7 printed front and back. The front was just an image with our names and date. The back had “you are invited to the wedding of blah and blah on date at address.” Then it said “RSVP on website or text or call my mom” then it said “visit our website for time sensitive accommodation and transportation information”. It worked great. We got a lot of online rsvps, more phone call or text rsvps, and filled a bus of 55 people with guests who looked on the website after getting the invite. It was easy to read and all the important information was received, anyone who wanted a hotel room texted me and asked about it if they weren’t sure about the information. We had a google doc on the website that kept track of the online rsvps and people left some really amusing messages. I don’t think anyone was upset we didn’t have paper rsvps and all the envelopes and extrs postage that goes with that. I personally hate getting wedding invites that just explode with a million papers that get lost all over the house etc. and I always let the RSVP sit filled out and prestamped on my coffee table for a good week before remembering to put it in the mailbox (idk what it is about them!) Most people I spoke to were thrilled they could text my mom. What I’m saying is less is more and it can be done in an easy and classy way! We are libing in the future I like to take advantage of that 🙂
Casual outdoor wedding, DIYing as much as I can. I designed and printed them using pic monkey and Canva. They are just two layers of alternating neutral cardstocks, RSVP on invite. Kept it below weight and under budget 🙂 Simple but everyone seemed to like them?
