Invitations

What is everyone using for their invites? If possible, can you post a picture of the invite you are using in this thread?

I had mine customed designed. The girl who did this for me was a past bride on the board.



I don't have a scan of our final invitation. My printer/all in one is broken. I really liked having everything custom designed. I really liked having that special touch.


However, this girl is REALLY talented! She has done alot here in Dallas for many high profile people and she is very reasonable.

I was going to design my own invitations but kinda ran out of time, so I copied ones I saw in a magazine and liked but couldn't afford (gulp!). I am very lucky to have a friend who owns a letterpress stationery business, so he printed the invitation cards, the reply cards, the envelopes, and the thank you notes, which look like blank reply cards.

I designed the folders and the Itinerary/Transportation Schedule and had them printed from a PDF on a color copier at a print house. They look just as good as offset printing but cost half as much!

Exclamation

I have a suggestion for a moderator - can this topic be sticky? I think it's really helpful to those looking for ideas and I have a feeling it's something everyone would be interested in.

I really like how you added the thing about no kids.. it's done very tastefully... I know some people take offense when their kids are not invited, but how can they with your reception card worded like that! Great Job!

Haha thanks. We are all ready way over our guest limit so we had to cut the kids. And honestly I love kids to death I work with them but sometimes you just a need a night for you ...... Without kids. So far we haven't had any huge issues, most of our guests with kids think it's great to have a night without them. I've only had one person making a big stink about the kids which would be FMIL about her 2 nieces but she's not paying so she gets no say. (YIKES that kind of sounds bad )

Mickey and Minnie

I used the all white Mickey and Minnie invite. Mickey and Minnie are on the front and they are shiny. Mickey is holding Minnie in his arms. I don't have enough posts yet to upload a picture.
