Colors

We originally had chosen blue and orange as our colors (as in our STDâ€s) but then changed them to blue, chocolate brown, and cream.

Save the Dates

I designed these and had them printed at Office Max (I hadnâ€t heard of Vista Print yet!)

Click the image to open in full size.

 

Invitations

I bought everything from Cards and Pockets to make these. I bought the Metallic Tiffany Signature Pocketfolds, Bronze (Metallic) Cardstock, Cream Cardstock (for the inserts), and the Milk Chocolate European Flap Envelopes (5.25x7.25).

My wrap-around label:

I made these in Word, printed them out on a full sheet label and then cut them out myself. I forgot to take a picture of them on the envelopes!

Reserved Seat Signs:

I designed these in Microsoft Word, printed them on the Cream Cardstock and used glue dots to adhere it to leftover Bronze metallic cardstock. Then I just slid the ribbon in between so it would still be adjustable. Very easy!

Old Lahaina Luau for our Reception:

After our ceremony, we wanted a stress-free and fun reception. I know this wouldnâ€t work for some people but the FI & I are just super casual and laid back so having a luau reception was perfect for us.
