I'm sad to say that after already purchasing the paper from the print shop, sinamy ribbon, and other supplies, my mom and I are no longer going to be making my wedding invitations! We initially were planning on making 30-40 invitations, sending them to people who were attending or were still not sure. But one thing let to another and my FI wanted to invite more people and send invitations to some family members even though they had already told us they were not going. So, the number of invitations rose to almost 80. 1, we didn't purchase enough supplies for that amount and 2, with my work schedule and finals coming up it was going to be difficult for my mom and I to get together and work on creating them. We made one invitation as a sample which I have attached below. It's funny, I wasn't too fond of it when we made it and now that I'm not making them I'm sad about not having those invitations sad.gif

I'm going to place an order for invitations from Designs by Lenila. I haven't heard anyone else on this forum speak about this site, so I hope they come out well!

I like your invitations! They are soo cute. You did a great job. Are you sure you couldn't get them done? What a shame! Well maybe you can incorporate some of the design in a menu card or Day of timeline.

You did a great job on the sample and I am in the same boat with the high number of invitations needed and the amount of time needed to make them! I agree with Myda!! Great idea!

Those invites are so cute. Make sure you take some with you to your wedding. You should definitely have your photographer get some good shots of them. They are worthy of going in your scrapbook (if you have one)!!!

aw what a bummer you arent going to make these anymore, theyre really pretty. i agree with nikki, take it with you to mexico anyway so your photog can get a good shot cheesy.gif

 

or.... what about still making them but then for the extra ones you have to send out, just order some from the white aisle or somewhere online inexpensively?

Thanks for all the suggestions everyone! I'm thinking I will probably use some of the paper and ribbon for my "welcome letters." And yes, I will take the sample invitation with me for some pictures!!

do you have a pic of the ones you are orderinghuh.gif are they simialr at all?

No, the new invitations don't look like the ones my mom and I made. They still go with the whole beach/starfish theme and they were in my budget.

Below is a pic of the invitations I'm ordering, except the hand-torn mulberry paper will be tan and there will be a raffia ribbon instead of the one shown. Also, the print will be in sepia instead of the color shown to coordinate with my wedding colors.
