    Absolutely Stunning! I haven't seen such a professional looking DIY invite! 

     

    If I may ask, what did you highlight on your 'packing list' card?

     

    Beautiful job again!

        Hi Arch 713,

         

        Thank you so much, you're so kind. I just attached an screenshot of the packing list card. I hope you find it helpful :)

                Aww thank you so much. The letterpress part was time consuming but i have a small wedding so it wasn't that bad. :) Did you do your wedding invite yet?

                  No, we're not getting married until 4.27.13 ~ but I've started looking around a little. It's so hard, I want something that is a least a little "beachy" but I do love the way a traditional, clean black and white invitation looks too. Ugh, too many decisions. Thank god I'm not having a "normal" wedding - having to pick a florist, a caterer, a cake, etc. would be too much for me to handle!! LOL

                    Hi Faith,

                     

                    You got plenty of times then :). I didn't start designing my wedding invite until March ahah and my wedding was in May (I just got back from Riviera Maya). You can take you're time with all the detail stuff. Are you bringing your own photographer?

                      We are using Adrian from Victor Herrera. The package that we booked at Now Sapphire does include a photographer, but only for like an hour or so ~ and my fiance and I definitely thought it was worth it to spend a little extra $$ to hire an outside guy.

                       

                      And Congratulations on your wedding!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
