Your wedding invitations have inspired me and my friend to "steal" the idea for her wedding invitations.
They're so beautiful and well made, I hope mine turn out as well.
Thank you for the idea and congratulations again.

WOW!! Those are sooo lovely!! I think you did a wonderful job! I was wondering how did you print out the envelopes? Because it's 12x12.. Did you find a printer that was suitable for it?.. BTW I hope you have/had a wonderful wedding!!

Aww...thanks!!  The original cardstock was 12x12, but once I folded them for printed they were 10 1/2" x 4 3/4".  I printed them at home on my photo printer.

The wedding is August 26...it's coming up fast!

Sweets-the more stuff of yours I see the more I love you Smiley

I'm going to throw this idea at my brother for his wedding. I have a feeling a good amount of my time is going to be used for his wedding. Between my mom and I, the entire thing will probably by DIY. Small weddings + two very crafty gals=DIY. I have to ask though, did you do an assembly line type thing to put them together? I'm thinking my mom could cut the stuff out, I could design and we could both put them together. We have *ahem* problems "crafting" together. We fight. You should have seen us when we painted our bathroom  Roll Eyes, but thats another story...

Those are absolutely gorgeous, and you should be very proud of yourself for making them!  All the best to you and your soon-to-be hubby!

*blush*  Your post made me smile!  I assembled all by my lonesome, so it wasn't too much of an assembly line.  I sort of did things until I'd get bored with them and then switched to others.  I designed, cut and assembled one entirely before I started more.  I wanted to make sure it would all work out.

Then, basically I did it like this...
Envelopes - Cut out, fold, glue (it sounds so simple, but I think I hated this piece the most...boring!)
Invitations - Many parts!
     Cut the dowels, paint them, hammer in those evil little beads with evil little nails
     Design the invitations on the PC, print them, apply glue & adhere/roll them on dowels & clothespin to dry
     Roll, roll, roll & ribbon for final packaging Smiley
Info packets - Design on PC, print, cut into stacks of 4 (four pages to mine including cover), assemble with brads
Package for mailing - shove it all in your envelope Cheesy, seal/sticker (and postage, of course)

I think you could easily make an assembly line out of any one of the parts or you could assembly line the entire project.
