Hey everyone!

 

We finished our invitations last night, and I thought I would post them to share! We are just waiting for our personalized stamps to arrive and then they will be going in the mail. eeeek, so excited!!!

 

 

 

 

This is a travel insert with just some basic general info about the resort and Mexico for those that haven't been. We put a lot more detailed info on our website.

 

 

 

This is our RSVP postcard.

 

 

 

This is a pic of the invite with the background, pocket-fold, and belly band.

 

 

 

This is all the components together, except for the QR code cards

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here are our QR code cards. FI is in IT and he wanted to add this, i though ti t was a great idea:). The code links to our wedding website when you scan it with your smartphone.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here's the finished invite. We also put a small business sized card in that our TA gave us with all her contact info and the resort name and date.

 

 

 

And here is the finished invite with the belly band on it.

 

 

 

This is the back of the envelope with our envelope seals

 

 

 

 

And, here is the finished envelope with mailing labels.

 

 

 

The travel inserts, RSVP's, invitations, return mailing labels and QR code cards were all ordered through Vistaprint. I designed everything myself but I used their floral pattern template. Including a Groupon I purchased and use of free links, all our Vistaprint stuff came to around $48.

 

The pocketfolds, envelopes and green colored paper were all ordered from envelopes.com. I was contemplating making the pocketfolds from cardstock, but with being in school full-time and working part-time, I thought that it might take too long. For 60 pocket folds, 100 sheets of paper, and 100 envelopes it cost us around $80.

 

The mailing labels I made myself using Word and just printed them on full sheet sticker paper and cut them out.

 

The belly bands were made by myself in Word and printed on regular printer paper. 

 

All in all for 60 invites (and lots of leftover supplies) we spent around $140.

 

Liz :)

      Those look great! I wish I had gone with VistaPrint, I ended up having a lot of trouble with my invites.

        Hi Ashleigh!! 

         

        I don't think they have names, but here's the link to the postcard:

         

        http://www.vistaprin...&xnav=popsearch

         

        They also have a matching image (search under their images for 'green flower' and you should be able to find it), which is what I used for the invite. I just created the back of the RSVP myself on Word and saved it as an image and uploaded it. I did the same for the wording on the invites and then just added the vistaprint image along the side.

         

        Liz :)

        Ok, for some reason the link is not working properly... If you go under the postcard section under marketing materials, and search for "green flower", it comes up on the first page!
