I am trying to figure out what looks best with the raffia - feedback is greatly appreciated. Some things to note: on the picture with the raffia wrapped both ways, imagine a starfish charm in the middle. In the second picture, the color is off so don't pay attention to that. 

 

Thanks ladies! 

 

PS - we have some enclosures to include so one of the concerns is that if I do horizontal raffia only, they'll fall out. Or...do we not wrap them up with the raffia if we do sideways only??

I prefer the second one, with the one strand. It looks easier to open for guests. I wouldn't wrap your extra papers in the raffia and just leave them loose.

@kellymiller

 

thanks! so far between you and some people offline I have 2 votes for the raffia going both ways and 3 going one way. Who knew that I'd ever care so much about raffia? lol. I'm so excited.

I think it looks ok both ways but I'd probably chose just the one why for myself. I wouldn't worry if something slips out/out of place :)

Definitely like the 2nd one better and I don't think you should wrap them with raffia.

I like the second, the one raffa tie. I had a single raffa tie on our invitations. I went back and forth with it also lol. I wasn't sure if I wanted to include the additional mailings behind the invitation, tucked in the raffa. I ended up leaving them loose so when they were opened, it would be near impossible to miss the additional items! Good luck!

Yay! Thanks girls. I went with the second, and tied a little starfish charm to it. I loved it and got great feedback from my guests.
