The Invite series
Ideas from pin-trest are so handy and inspiring they have
A huge variety of styles, colours and themes
Our wedding invites
The acceptance card my mum made!
We have finally sent out our wedding invites and managed to get them sent out 5 months before the wedding. Our style/theme is very rustic, vintage and classy. I love small details, and making an item yourself shows how dedicated you are to making something look good! Throughout our wedding preparations and planning you will find that we have made a lot of our own decorations etc.
Here is a mini guide to invites; who, the style, when and some inspiring pins.
Guest list: don't feel pressured to invite people you don't really want there, it is your day so think of yourselves, not the guests.
Also think of your numbers and what your budget is. My fiancée and I both have four cousins and most of them have partners but unfortunately we are on a budget so they are invited to the evening party. Think of alternative ways of getting other guest to your wedding not everyone has to see you get married
The invites: styles, themes and colour schemes. If your having a theme for your wedding but don't want your guest to know, the look of the invites can be a big giveaway. Try going for something elegant and classy then they'll never guess. Be as pretentious as you want just make sure you have all the information required.
When: like I said before, we have sent our invites out 5 months before the wedding, this gives time for your guests to book time off, organise travel, accommodation and also helps give a reasonable rsvp time. We have written in ours to let us know by the 1st of May. We've had quite a few acceptances already, and a gorgeous one delivered the other day, how adorable is this wedding acceptance card my mum made!
I hope you enjoyed the read
Lots of love
