Two weekends ago, my fiance, his mom, and I knocked out our wedding invites after I had been obsessing over them for ages. All of this was done in MS Word and Photoshop and it was printed at Kinkos.
The outside: Red Cardstock wrapped with silver and black ribbon, and a tag on top specifying the guest's name(s).
The flip side: The outside back. The ribbon holds onto the RSVP card and the map/accommodations card.
The address side of the RSVP postcard, complete with an Alaska highway stamp (because i'm from Alaska - I scored these on eBay for cheap, which I liked because I didn't want to have to use the panthers.
also, they are 29 cent stamps, which still works after postage goes up in May):
The information side of the RSVP postcard, design based on TheBon's RSVPS:
The Map/Accommodations card, Map side. Design based on Wedding Mapper.
The Map/Accommodations card, Accommodations side.
and, finally, the inside of the cardstock, the ACTUAL INVITE:
...and the envelopes, hand addressed by moi; and, at the bottom, the return address label (for good measure).
Please pardon the ghetto censoring - I didn't have time to futz with photoshop
So? Whaddaya think? Very un-pokeball
, yeah? They'll be going out next week-ish
ETA: crap. i didn't realize these pics were so washed out when i posted... you can get the gist, though, right?
