Weddingnesday… our diy wedding invites

 Weddingnesday... our diy wedding invitesTwo months ago, we got married.

Three and a half months ago, we started making our invites.

Having left no budget (whoops!) for invites,
I’d decided we would make them ourselves.

I had a rough idea that I could use
my rolling stamp in some way…

Then I came across some coloured library cards…

As we’ve been together a rather long time,
I thought it would funny to stamp them ‘overdue’.

Well, we used that to make our envelopes.
(It’s actually just wrapping paper but looks the real deal.)

then 130 envelopes… phew.

Then we got stamping…

 Weddingnesday... our diy wedding invitesAnd stamping some more…

(I had inky fingers for a whole week!) Weddingnesday... our diy wedding invitesAnd there may have been ‘a bit’
of handwriting too to fill them out.

Then the easy bit… envelope stuffing! Weddingnesday... our diy wedding invites

And hopefully lots of ‘awwws’ when everyone got them.  Weddingnesday... our diy wedding invites

And maybe even a little applause! Weddingnesday... our diy wedding invitesThen all we had to do was wait for the RSVPs…

Oh yes and organise a wedding!
But more of that once I have the pics.

Hope you like them.

P.S. To anyone thinking of doing their own diy invites,
make a decent playlist to listen to while crafting…
and always check that you’ve spelt a word right
before stamping it over several invites!
