    These are DIY invitations we did. We used a Groupon for Vistaprint for the printing and a good friend is a crafter and she and I did the "seal" which is a laminated sheet (the material sequins are made of)  embossed with an African batik pattern and hand painted. Each one is different as you can see. The cards are stacked under the invitation. Cheers.

We are the first to host a destination wedding, so we thought they'd be fun. My fiance loves them and he works in the art industry so he is picky. I feel like they are missing something but then again, I am over the top. I was thinking of adding a rhinestone to the front cover on one of the feathers, or adding  metallic chords to the binding. What do you ladies think? Leave well enough alone, or add my little touch? Mom bought a Swarovski hot gun that affixes crystals to anything so it would be subtle and easy to do but I am worried about messing them up.

              The travel inserts, invites, return mailing labels, RSVP's and the QR code cards were all ordered from Vistaprint. I used a floral template design for the invites and the RSVP's, and I added my own wording, etc. The travel inserts were just the beach background and we added the wording. And the QR code cards were blank biz cards. :)

                  These are really beautiful already but I don't think you could go wrong if you added a crystal between the peacocks maybe...
