    Hi Ladies,

     

     

    I just finished some of my invitations to my ladies and I am really proud of how they came out. Figured I'd share with you gals and see your thoughts?

     

    I knew that I wanted to ask my girls to be in my wedding in a special and memorable way. I struggled between doing something with photos and making a card…so in the end, I decided to do both! My Inspiration for some of the wording came from the link below:

    Early on, I purchased turquoise silk boxes from another BDW Bride “DawnBuckley” who had actually purchased them from “Boston Bride 2009”. I had no idea what I was going to use them for, but I loved them anyways.

    After many ‘trial and errors’ I came up with my invitation idea. I decided to make a booklet invite that contained a personalized letter to each lady. Then there was a “Will You Be My Senorita” section. I then included a poem that Bride “SMBride42012” had posted here: http://www.bestdesti...smaid-ideas/10 

     

    Each of the sections had a photo of me with them.

    I created a template in Excel. (Took many tries and wasted sheets of copy paper). Then I just copied the template onto sheets within the workbook and customized the pages for each girl. I have an amazing HP printer we bought last year...GREAT purchase. I printed the template double sided. Then folded the paper lengthwise…

    Then widthwise…

      I used my paper cutter to cut the page in half (widthwise) ...

    Then I was lazy again and used double sided tape to 'bind' the two pages together.
