Our invitations

Choosing our wedding invitations caused me the most frustration out of all the wedding planning. I was against making our own because I didn't want the added stress but after comparing costs we decided to go with designing and printing our own. I think they turned out pretty cute. {full list of items used below}

this silver twine took too long to wrap so i switched to AC ribbon

envelopes were full of loose confetti as well

I hand stamped our address and hand wrote our names in white ink

What we used:

printer: Epson Workforce 545 It fed through the tiny RSVP cards and prints photos really well too. I love that its wireless, and you can print from your phone. Also you can buy each ink color separately.

all paper and envelopes were purchased from Paper Source: A7 Envelopes in fuchsia, A7 note cards in eco-white,  4 Bar envelopes in fuchsia, 4 Bar note cards in gravel, oval labels in fuchsia

also from paper source: Uniball white gel pens and the glassine envelopes we used for confetti

our confetti was from Walmart (sold around Easter)

I used multiple washi tapes: Freckled Fawn Arrow Washi, Freckled Fawn  Red Heart Line Washi, October Afternoon Celebrate tape, and a few from Target

for RSVP envelopes i used this make your own stamp from Staples, and Colorbox frost white ink pad.

vintage seed packet forever stamps (I wish these Johnny Cash stamps would have been out 3 months ago!)
