YEAH! My last major project is done and in the mail. This was a doozie! I designed them all myself as the local inviation shops refused to allow me to pick my text/color. I had a major issue getting them printed as it was a small order (only 50 invites). smile123.gif


I bought the woven grasspaper for $100 plus shipping (for 5 huge sheets, I have 2 left) from Paper.com Shopping Cart


I bought 2 sets of blue paper, the first from Thailand and did not have enough so (of course after I cut it all and could not order any more as it was discontinued...great) I had to change paper. i ordered the Carribean Blue cardstock from Cards & pockets. I paid to have them cut this time and was very disappointed as they cut them incorrectly and I had to recut them all. So 2 sizes of cut paper (45 of each) and 25 sheets of 8 1/2x11 was $59.00


I bought all of my envelopments paper at Where's The Party in Newport Beach (which is amazing but I did not like the designer who I was trying to use for design/assembly so I gave up and did my own, saving me about $700).


Envelopments: Ecru Micha color

Pocketfolds were $2.00

8 1/2x11 paper was .65 (I printed and cut all myself)

RSVP envelopes were .35

Large envelopes were .50

Total Envelopments: $140


Designed colors I used from my Logo I made. Heart Motif I used from my Logo I made.

2 bags of mini crystals (4.99 each) and crystal glue $5.00


Printing: No one would do my small batch except Kinko's and they won't do envelops.

Invite Printing on 8 1/2x11 paper at Kinko's-$41

Printed the evelops at home



outside envelop I used a beach heart photo with date that I took when I was in Cabo for Xmas. I ordered 3 sheets of stamps from PitneyBowes which did it through StampExpressions. Do not order from them on a rush! I paid a ton extra to have them in 1-3 days versus 1-3 biz days or regular and I did not get htem for 7 days. There was no phone number to call and service was horrible. They were not as good a quality as the ones I got for my STD from zazzle.com. $134.00

Inside: standard green wedding heart from PostOffice $16.80


Ribbon I bought to to match my ribbon on the wrapped fans and card tags. $4.99


Caligraphy was $120


Entire invitations cost including postage, printing, all paper, etc: $641.00. My inspiration was an Encore iinvitation that was about $1400 not including postage and not in my colors.


My mom and I sat for two nights assembling them (about 15 hours between the 2 days....OUCH)


Guests have begain receiving them and say they look very professional and had no idea we made them! YEAH!


Here are the pic (sorry for the squiggly lines I wasn't sure how to black stuff out. The paper was so shiny they were hard to photograph)

    • I am looking for a best bride box subscription. I think it's a good idea while pandemic. As I can stay happy having bridal boxes each month. So, did someone have a one? What can you advise?
    • Hello everyone. Who have a destination wedding in 2020? Do you postpone it or celebrate? Please share with you experience.
    • Now we can say life is divided into before and after. And only now I understand our life was so good when there were no restrictions and quarantine. Thank you for sharing this beautiful wedding story. We also got married before the pandemic, and we had a beautiful wedding and a wonderful honeymoon. And during the quarantine, my husband lost his job and was depressed, we had big family problems that could lead to a divorce. Fortunately, I found a blog with marriage advice on how to avoid divorce and we passed this test.
