Reality: Invitations

So I've shown the digital designs of my invite but now it's time to show the final product! This way by far a labor of love and I'm soo happy how they turned out! If you have any questions about my process, any materials used etc feel free to leave a comment and I'll get back with you.

First up: The Invitation

I made some really chic bows from a tutorial by Mrs. Emerald on Weddingbee. You can access her instructions here.

Next up: The accompaniments

Followed by: Envelopes

I really wanted to do something different from the regular printed labels, and calligraphy was just too expensive so I printed addresses on the envelopes using my trusted Canon Pixma. I used the same font on the envelopes as was used on the invitations.

Finally: The Entire Suite

Packed up and headed to the post office:


  1. Gorgeous!!! You rocked those out! CONGRATS on those!!

  2. 100% Beautiful!!!! love them :)

  3. The invites are beautiful! What does it say above the box on the back side of the RSVP postcard?

  4. Ok seriously, they look great! I love your colors!

  5. Hi K! I stumbled across your blog and am thrilled to see the invites all assembled! They really look lovely. And I LOVE how you did the envelopes. Congrats on a job well done!

  6. Beautiful invites! Where did you find your cardstock and envelopes?
