DIY INVITES: Part One

Wednesday, March 24, 2010

First off, I just want to apologize for being MIA. Life has consisted of so many wedding planning events. So with that being said, I have much to tell you.

In this post, I'd like to let you in a little somethin' somethin' that I have been working soooo hard on. OUR INVITATIONS!!

I have been working on our invites for over a year now. I repeat, over a year now. HA! I have done more research I had ever dreamed I would do. I guess you can call it my little secret addiction :/

A few days I ago I got a few boxes in the mail.


And I was pleasantly surprised to see my wedding invitation boxes happily awaiting my arrival from work.


I ordered 120 5x7 1/2 matte black jewelry boxes.


I purchased each box at 80 cents a piece from Box and Wrap. It definitely beats the $2 a piece price Paper Source was charging me.




I also received my order from Cards and Pockets.


I purchased 120 "black tie" 5x7 custom made pockets at $1.05 each. These pockets will hold my Maps, Directions, Accommodations, Additional Info and RSVP cards.


I also purchased 120 "black tie" 5x7 panel cards for 25 cents each. These will show case the actual invite that I got letterpressed =)


I am so happy they are finally here!!! I can't wait to start the MASS PRODUCTION this weekend.

Please stay tuned as I have more and more to reveal!

I follow your blog because you're the opposite of me! I can't believe how detail-oriented you are...gosh! I took about 2 minutes deciding my wedding card - even less time deciding who my groom will be HA - go figure!
