some thing is missing from my invites! help!

Recommended Posts

Not only do they not look finished, but are they going to mail alright with the starfish glued on? (is the starfish gonna be crushed when they open them? Should I get busy and make some else to go around them or something?)

Do any of you have any experience with these? And can you think of anything that I can add to jazz it up a bit?! Or do you like them simple like that and then surprise everyone with all of the color once they get there?

Help!

I think they are simple & elegant! They look great! I personally love the RSVP - too cute wink.gif

 

Have you tried squeezing a starfish? if that doesn't break, I wouldn't get to worried about it.

If you are worried about it, I guess you could always just place a bunched up tissue around it after you stick it in the envelope?!? I don't know - I'm sorry I have no experince with this either!!

 

But anyways - I think they look great!

I was also going to say tie a piece of Raffia around the invites.. maybe sheild the starfish by putting some colorful tissue paper around the invite and then tie the raffia paper around it... if you want to add more you can always print out your monogram (small size) and punch a whole through it and attach it to the raffia so it hangs from the tie.. if that makes sense.

Leigh-

I think your invites look great! What are your wedding colors? I like the idea of the rafia tied around the invite. I think a blue color would look beautiful and go with the whole beach/water motif. The wording on your reply cards is great! I've been struggling on how to word them. I would like my guests to include their travel dates as well.

I vote, leave them as it is. IMO they are perfect, people put way too much thought into invites, and if you think back how many people do you think actually keeps theirs or teh guests remembers them? Don't get me wrong I love a pretty invite, and their are so many awesome ideas on here, but I think sometimes less is more.

Yeah a long time ago, when I sent out my STD's we just decided to do the invites at the same time because we knew most people couldn't attend. I made them, but they were super simple and I only mailed out like 40 of them. We plan on doing an annoucement after our wedding.
