    The invitations are a formality at this point, as we think we are aware of all of those that will be able to make make the trip.

    I ordered the Envelopment pockets from a local woman that makes invitations.
    I designed all of the printed items, just gave her the files.
    She had them cut and printed.
    I assembled and pasted them all myself.

    It is hard to tell from the pictures, but I used metallic envy and white micah.
    I cut out some small vellum-like sheets to cover the invitation print, like in traditional invites, they are not affixed to the invite.

    Micah metallic envelope, I had to cut all the seals:

    Fonts are dark-dark brown and green:

    Response card is a postcard:
    Click the image to open in full size.

    This one is a little blurry.
    Spanish version is on the back side of the Travel & Accommodations insert:

    If I had to do it again, I would use something cheaper than Envelopments, they are expensive!
    For as much work as I did, I would do the printing and cutting myself (would have been much cheaper), but she did a nice job with the printing.
    I have this ability to jam every printer I touch, so I was glad not to have to deal with that piece of it.

    If you see any typos, please don't tell me!
    They are done! Hehe!

                  They look beautiful Paula! Great job on the design of the inserts! Oh and about those typos.....just kidding; I however spelled accommodations wrong on mine and had to reprint the inserts after my mother (whom is a business teacher) corrected me by giving me the spelling lesson she gives her students: "Accommoadtions, like a room, has "room" for a lot of letters" since I forgot the other M....for god sakes.
