Petalfold Wedding Invitations - LOVE them!!
Posted 15 June 2009 - 08:06 PM
This is my third attempt a posting pictures so I'm going to keep this short in case I lose everything again Anyway, we had our STD's made in January and though we were happy with how they turned out, they ended up being really expensive (and the customer service was crap!) We wanted a magnet STD so people would put it on their fridge instead of stashing it in a drawer... didn't, however, like the quality of the full-page magnet the store printed on - so we went with a magnet strip across the back. Also, I knew that the idea of a save-the-date would be foreign to some of our guests, so I printed a little explanation on clear labels and stuck them on the backs of the cards.
Our invitations were a completely different experience! I was happy to DIY my invites but didn't want to be typical... I also wanted to find a way to tie them into our STD's even though they weren't going to completely match (since going back to the same place was not an option). I happened to stumble upon The Uncommon Bride - a website with some original DIY kits. My experience with Patti Nott at theuncommonbride.com was absolutely incredible! She was quick to answer any questions I had and I was thrilled with her product and how they turned out! I ended up ordering the 'Paige' and the 'RSVP' DIY kits.
Everything we included:
Everything stacked nicely in the petalfold... My fiance also found a little fish embosser/hole punch. We punched out a ton of them and included a few in each invitation... little fishies swam out as people opened their invites - they LOVED them!
In the RSVP envelope we included the RSVP (which reads 'Accepts: Here are the names of those of us who look forward to sun-kissed skin and are hoping to join you in November!' 'Regrets: Unfortunately, we will not be able to attend, but will be thinking of you as we prepare our snow shovels for the long season ahead!'). We also included 'A wish for the Bride and Groom' (some had red fish, others had orange) as well as an explanation card, asking that people send along a wish on the back of the cards for us to hang on our wishing tree at our D.R. reception.
Travel agent/wedding coordinator contact information, as well as prices and important dates (deposit, full payment, etc)
Additional information - our e-mail address, phone number, resort link.
Hope this helps anyone looking for something a little different. Again, I would HIGHLY recommend The Uncommon Bride... Patti was awesome!!

Stephanie, we've heard great things about the Palladium resorts so far - hopefully your parents are in agreement.
The embosser was from Michael's (I believe it was part of the Martha Stewart collection)... They've started to come back with the RSVP's and I'm trying so hard not to peek! It's sooo hard though - especially since some people have gotten creative (adding little heart shaped bubbles coming out of the fishies' mouths - too friggen cute!).
As for the Uncommon Bride, I'm really pleased with the quality of her work - she was so efficient! And a fellow Canadian girl (based out of Calgary)!
