Last week I shared the outside of our DIY wedding envelopes, and today I’m going to show you what we had inside.
Now that wedding invitations have been sent out, and RSVPs are starting to trickle in, I wanted to share our NYE wedding invitation design on the blog.
As I mentioned before, I designed our wedding invitations using Mixbook.com. I was really happy with the quality and value, but most of all I loved how simple the website was to use to create a customized design that was perfect for our New Year’s Eve wedding.
I ordered the return address stickers from Mixbook.com, too, to match the invitations, and put those on the back flaps of the envelopes. I didn’t use them to seal the envelopes with the glue because I figured they’d get torn when opened. Instead, I sealed the envelopes with a piece of glitter tape, which I think gave them a fun look. The more sparkle,the better, I think!
I went for a flat card-style invitation, since it’s a less expensive options. I had the idea early on to try to make one side of the invitation be something that people wouldn’t hate having up on their fridges or pinned to a bulletin board until our wedding. To go along with the New Year’s theme, I designed a glittery gold image that says, “Cheers”.
Along with the gold polka dot envelope liner and the stripes and glittery dots on the invitation, I think it all looks a bit Kate Spade-inspired, don’t you?
“Cheers” is something that we’re incorporating throughout our wedding decor in small touches to tie it all together. The stamp I designed for the front of the envelope had a variation of the “Cheers” design, too. Love those little details.
And speaking of details, here’s a close up of the text we included in our invitation. Did you know that traditional etiquette requires that the brides name goes first on everything before the wedding and second after the wedding? Funny little things you learn when planning a wedding.
