Invitation question

Recommended Posts

We've now decided to have an AHR. Our wedding is 7 weeks away now, so we're getting there!

 

My questions is about invitations. We sent out more formal invitations for the wedding, without mention of an AHR because we weren't sure. We want to go really simple for this now, so, do you think that it's acceptable if we send out invitations more like a flyer type-thing? Or is it just tacky or corny? We don't really want to spend any more money on invites. UGH, I hate all this etiquette/tradition stuff!!

 

Thanks ladies! cheesy.gif

I think it depends on how fancy your AHR is going to be. If it's real casual (think beef and beer style) a flyer-type invite would be fine. But if it's going to be fancy, I think you might need something a little more invitation-like. But don't forget that VistaPrint has all kinds of free stuff! For my shower, they used the flat invitation (we also reused it for my menu for the AHR) and they were nice and free! Except postage of course...

Yeah, I didn't even think of Vistaprint. We ordered our RSVP cards from them using the flat card. Great idea, thanks Carly! cheesy.gif

 

AHR is going to be pretty casual. We'll still rent a hall and dj and stuff, but it won't be over the top as we really can't afford that.

That would be an option but we have a lot of people who aren't into the email thing, unfortunately.

I definately think that Vistaprint is the way to go...

 

and remember that rack cards are the same as invites except you get 50 for free instead of 10!

 

I am planning on doing everything through Vistaprint. Im giving myself a crash course in Photoshop/Illustrator at the moment so I can have everything matching and in my own design :)

 

Make sure you post whatever you create so we can all see wink.gif

We are ordering our AHR invites through a woman who does calligraphy. They are gorgeous and simple. And pretty inexpensive. If you would like PM me for details!

Have you thought about a simple postcard? Or if it's at least a month or two after your wedding you could send out a wedding announcement/AHR invite all in one, using one of your wedding pictures. Like the front of the postcard could be one of your wedding pictures and it would say We're Married! then on the back you could say something like Please join us in celebrating our marriage...

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
