    As some of you may know I lost my job (redundancy) half way through our wedding planning - so the budget has been reduced as we only have 6 months to go. So my FI has tasked me with the job of making the invitations for the AHR which is going to be a big affair - 100 invites to make - as we are travelling from the UK so most people wont be coming to the wedding so we are continuing the turquoise and gold through to the AHR.

    Its working out about £1 per invite. The RSVP cards are meant to look like luggage tags - they are just free business cards from Vistaprint I have cut up and added turquoise cord. I really hope our guests like them as they will know we are on a budget but I still want everything to look good.

    Thanks for looking

                  Hi Josie. Luggage tags are original. I like it. The outside is cute but can't tell what the inside looks like.

                  Josie, the invites look wonderful! Never ever tell anyone you made them yourself or how much it cost...cause they look like they were professionally made :) I love Vistaprint!
