    Again...beautiful!!!!

    Thanks, I really love what he did... The feather-frondy thing, lol, was actually an image he purchased on one of those stock image websites (istockphoto). Then he converted it into an illustrator file

      I love Burgues Script!!! I am using it on our invites, but I love the way your names look! I didnt use and of the really scrolly letters... but I might go back and change that!

        Okay, just one more question (probably)...
        What size mailing tubes did you get, 2" or 2.5"?

        I don't think I've seen so many impressed brides-to-be! Way to go!
        You should be super proud of yourself!

          i used the 2" diameter, it kept the bottle snug so it wouldn't be rolling around in the cylinder. another tip... you're going to have to add tissue paper since the bottle is shorter in length.

            Since it's the day after Thanksgiving, I wanted to tell you how THANKFUL I am that you posted your pics. I know this may sound silly, but my invitations have been an ongoing battle for months. I have discovered over the last few months that I don't like most wedding things-most decorations, most dresses, most invitation styles etc. I have changed my mind about invitations like 8 times and was about to lose it until I saw your pics. You did a fantastic job and have totally inspired me to make mib invitations. Supplies arrive next week, I'll make them over the weekend and will hand-deliver most of them when I return to Illinois for Christmas!!!!
            The madness is OVER! Yay!
            Happy Day-After-Thanksgiving!
