    I'll be mailing them out within the week. It was important to me to get all the information to my guests before they booked, I just felt that was fair. Most people mail theirs out 2-3 months beforehand though, so don't feel the pressure! lol.

      Great job! Those are awesome! You have given me inspiration to perhaps do my own. I love the sand dollars and the invites.

              The paper that the trifold is made out of is handmade mulberry paper called Blue Iris. I got it at a local art store, but there are lots of places online that sell mulberry paper. The only thing I'd watch for is that some places had mulberry paper that was coloured only on one side, and the other was white, so if you were to do this and get coloured mulberry paper, just make sure its coloured on both sides.

              The blue paper I bought at a scrapbooking store. It's got a bit of a gleam to it. The store called it "Bling", which is apparently a standard kind of paper they carry... the colour name is Prince Charming.

              Behind the invitations is burlap, which I got at a fabric store.

                  Love the invites courtney....it's good to know you are sending them early...I was kinda thinking of doing this...I have the weding website...but I think that I should send invites early too because most people are going to know this early I would think if they can go or not...I mean they have to plan and save for their trip and start booking. So why wait... good idea! :)
