My invites are out, and I can't wait any longer to share them!! Our colors are light blue (bluebell) and orange (papaya). 

 

I went a semi-DIY route, meaning I had a graphic designer who did the invite & RSVP for me (based on a design I saw from another bride here at BDW), then printed using 123print.com. I used the linen-type paper, and they came out amazing!!! 

 

I then did a quickie design for an insert with our website, and a perforated tear-off for the welcome dinner RSVP, both in word.

 

I wrapped the inside stuff in a strip of handmade Japanese paper, secured with a square of craft paper with the sand dollar on it (Martha Stuart punch), and then tied orange & white twine around the bundle. 

 

The orange (papaya) invite envelopes are from a local paper store (Paper Source also carries them though).

 

I made the envelope liners myself using

 

The RSVP (front):

The RSVP (back): 

 

The pieces: 

 

And all assembled: 

 

The envelope seal: 

 

Thanks for looking!

            These are great!  I'm having such a hard time deciding on invitations - I like the semi DIY!

              These are gorgeous! Was the graphic designer expensive? I feel like I am like you, semi-DIY, and definitely know the designing piece is something I cannot do. 

               

              How long did it take to all put together?

               

              Fabulous job! You are truly an inspiration to us future brides who have yet to complete invitations! : )
