Our Invitations! Part One..

Let me start by saying that I am SO sorry for my recent lack of posting, but we have had some serious technical difficulties around here! First I couldn't get my camera to work, then the battery died and we couldn't find the charger. Luckily, Ryan came through and found the charger in one of our unpacked boxes today and now my blogging can resume! I am going to try to blog everyday this week so that I can catch everyone up on everything! And, since our invitations are pretty detailed, I thought I better break them up into a couple of posts. Enjoy!

Here is what our guests saw when they opened the envelope. We opted to not use an inner envelope because, well, they are kind of pointless and wasteful. And since we used pocket folders, the folder basically served as the inner envelope. (You can click any of the pictures to make them bigger.)

And here is what they saw when they removed the label and ribbon:

Here is a close-up of the main invitation:

And here is the side with the inserts:


Tomorrow I will share more details of the inserts and our calligraphy, embossing, etc. I can also do a cost breakdown if anyone is interested. These invitation posts are so long overdue, I hope they are worth the wait!

Your invitations are pretty. Make sure that you save one to put into a shadowbox as a keepsake.
