All of the invitations have gone out and been received, so I thought it would be fun to share our invitations on the blog today!
Let me tell you, this entire experience has been challenging but a blast! Everything I thought I wanted completely went out of the window when I got engaged. Suddenly my focus was on creating something different and unexpected. When we first started looking for invitations, I had my eye on a particular suite that at the end of the day, was out of budget. BUT! I dreamed up this beautiful creation that was brought to life by myself, Aaron and his groomsman.
And here they are! I just love them to pieces, I really think they turned out to be fabulous!
That white spot-I whited out our address. I can't have anyone showing up at my door. I think that'd be pretty awkward...more so for you than for me! For the addresses (I really wish I had signed up for calligraphy last year!) I decided to handwrite everyone's address versus using a label. I think they are more personal that way. They came out pretty good once I decided how I wanted the handwriting to look. The text on the actual invitation is ombre and foiled. I like that when you hold the invitation straight in front of you, it looks like it's silver!
This project was a lot of fun and I wouldn't mind stretching my creative muscle in this area again in the future!
