I have been looking at the prices of invites, and since I will be sending out just over 100 invites and I already bought these I figure I will try to dress these up somehow. What do you ladies think, does this look tacky?

    Very pretty christine!! I had the same exact ones in my hand to buy, then I ended up buying the ones with just the silver border instead. I am also going to add the monogram that I made at the bottom. But you are way more martha than me adding the ribbon!!

    I think you did a great job with them!

      Christine, that looks great! Are those from Target? I've seen some cute invite kits there.

      You can also try to punch two holes on the top of the invite and tie the bow through the holes.

      that's what I did Amy, great minds think alike.

      Thanks girls...I just don't want people to get this and think, wow, they are going cheap, I would just rather spend the money on the reception.

        I made my own and put a sash with bow across it to dress it up.

          These do not look cheap at all. I think they look nice. I was thinking though, just a thought, did you try with a smaller bow? I think it takes up a lot of space, I could be wrong though, things always look different in pics. They do look great though.

              Christine,

              Those look really nice. The satin bow really dresses it up.

                  I agree that these look very nice - no worries about looking cheap at all!
