    This is a mock up of my invites (done with pieced together scrapbook paper and printer paper - don't mind all the tape!). I feel like its missing something but not sure what. I've looked at some online but most have flowers/swirls which is not me. The envelope will be silver and the band will be silver as well to tie into the modern look of the resort.

     

    Does anyone have any ideas on how to spruce them up? Any and all suggestions are welcome! Thanks!!

      love your colors!

       

      could you do your monogram on a contrasting color on top of the ribbon band when it's closed? or a starfish or a tiny piece of a palm leaf... I don't think they need a lot of dressing up, they're very pretty!

       

      can't wait to see the finished product!

        Those are great!  I printed my logo onto round stickers, and then sealed the envelope with those. I was going to do ribbon too, but then the post office said it would be $1.20 instead of  $.62.  The stickers were perfect. 

         

        When you do send them, don't forget that you can get the post office to "hand cancel" them for free (instead of running them through machines).  That way they will come out perfectly through the mail.  They'll roll their eyes at you because it's more work for them, but it is part of their service when requested.  :)

          simply beautiful! It's almost the same of my sister's invitation when she is getting married. I adore color blue so you've got my appreciation on your work. Well done!

            What about stamping the envelope, maybe with a palm tree or some other tropical item.

              I think they look nice, especially the inside of it.  You don't want things to look too busy and cluttered.  You could add a thin pink ribbon in the center of your silver, if the outside is what you'd like to add to.

                  Thanks everyone! I love the idea of adding a thin pink ribbon to the outside @lovepea - will bring that pop of brightness. I haven't found the exact ribbons yet (what is on there now is white from a friend's invite). We figured I need to make 70 of these so I should be ordering supplies soon so I can get cracking!

                    Wow beautiful, what about adding colored ribbon (thin) on the outside or adding a real starfish on the outside??? Of course then you wouldn't be able to fit them int their envelopes probably :(
