I am gettng ready to send out invitations for my July wedding.. But before I print 60+ invitations, I was hoping to have some unbiased eyes take check them out to ensure I didn’t make any mistakes or miss any important details.
I’m not 100% happy with them, but I’m trying to stay on a budget. I live in Canada and I couldn’t find the exact colours I was looking for in stores. I did find some things online that would have been perfect, but they were just too expensive with the shipping and handling that it wouldn’t have been worth it. Anyways, the colours don’t exactly match our wedding colour scheme.. but I figure no one is going to bring the invitation to the Reception and match up the invitations with the flowers and table linens and realize they don’t match! (I hope…)
Anyways, here’s what I purchased
– Lilac Cardtock Paper (ordered through my work’s office supply company)
– Ivory Linen Paper (Walmart)
– Liliac Ribbon (Dollar Store)
– Ivory Ribbon (Michaels)
– Envelopes, Silver (Minted)
– Rose Decorations, Ivory (Ebay) – i ordered these a while ago but they haven’t arrived yet, I’m hopign to put them with the ribbon band with an additionall tag that has our names/wedding date
Thanks for reading!

Whoa i think they are gorgous and there’s nothing that I could critique! I would only ask whether you think the song request could be on the back of the RSVP card and whether you think that would increase the # of people that would compete the song request or not?

Thank you so much everyone for the kind words! I feel better about printing them now. I’m nervous to waste all the paper and ink, and then to notice I forgot an important detail… like in my first version I put the name of the hotel, but not the actual address.
yes! the dollar store! weirdly when I went, I didn’t see any ribbon, but my mom found the purple ribbon at the Dollaramma near her work, so she went to a few different Dollerammas to get enough ribbon. I hope you find what your’e looking for!

Very pretty. Btw, the invites don’t need to be the same color scheme as your wedding. You could have a metallic gold invite for an electric blue and black wedding if you’d like. Invites convey more of the formality of the wedding. It’s more important to match the formality of your invite to the formality of your wedding than matching colors.
My invites were goldenrod and brown – wedding colors are royal blue, gold, ivory, and coral. They conveyed the garden wedding we’re having, so that’s all that mattered. 🙂
