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 cardâ€¦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 â€œDawnBuckleyâ€ who had actually purchased them from â€œBoston Bride 2009â€. I had no idea what I was going to use them for, but I loved them anyways.

After many â€˜trial and errorsâ€™ 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 â€œWill You Be My Senoritaâ€ section. I then included a poem that Bride â€œSMBride42012â€ had posted here: http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/thread/30208/will-you-be-my-bridesmaid-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 lengthwiseâ€¦
