          Colors
          We originally had chosen blue and orange as our colors (as in our STD’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 hadn’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!

            Ceremony Music
            Our wedding coordinator’s husband, Jamie Lawrence, was highly recommended by many. We’re excited!
            Bridal Party Processional: A traditional Hawaiian song that we left to Jamie’s discretion
            Bridal Processional: Maunaleo
            Song after ring exchange: Kawai Lehua A’ala Ka Honua
            Recessional: Somewhere over the Rainbow (ukulele version)

              Programs:
              I bought some of the Metallic Tiffany cardstock from Cards & Pockets and the rest of the paper was left over from the invites. We’ll put these on the palm fans on everyone’s chairs.

              This was how I had it set up in the Word document (screenshots with names taken out):

              Click the image to open in full size.

              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 wouldn’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.
