I was so inspired by people's DIY wedding invitations that I designed my own. I had no idea when I started how much work they would be! God bless my mom, who stepped in and made them from my design. I based the invitations on the mini albums made by Kolo (that's the thing at the top of the picture). My husband made the map. Our wedding colours were "celadon" and "merlot" (according to me; according to my husband, "green and purple"!?)
The first page of the invitation "booklet" is a sheet of white velum, and the next sheet is green cardstock with a stamp of a bride and groom on it. In the middle of the booklet is our invitation itself.
We sent out a save-the-date card, too.
These are our wedding fans and our favour tins. All my cousins and aunts pitched in to make these, and my sister provided them with margaritas to keep them going.
I was glad we had the fans...it was a hot day! My aunt had the brilliant idea of drilling a hole in the bottom of the stick and putting ribbon through the end. Before that they looked a little like lime popsickles...
Thanks for the inspiration everyone!
