Wow I have not been on here in awhile. Been majorly busy at work and spending my efforts on the engagement party that we just had (more on that later). Anyways, I’m gonna try and get back to the swing of things and post as often as I can.
First order of business…The Wedding Invitations. I’ve been told that you send these generally 3-5 months before your wedding date, while the Save the Date go out about 6-8 [before hand]. Of course this is all formality and if your wedding is happening in say…3 months (or if you guys are eloping whatever), this time-line doesn’t really apply to you.
The invites are really flexible. Me and my fiance talked about having a website, or a video, or just some simple postcards. It’s really up to you how much you want to spend and how important it is to you. I know that most people get it, mark their calendars and toss it…so it’s simply preference what you want. I know that for us, the whole “green” thing is in play so doing something that consumes less waste is better.
With that said…here are some totally not-less-waste invites:
Some simple, traditional, elegantly done designs.
I love the embossing/letter pressing thing. And the wood cards.
Cool ideas (cds, handkerchief, pencil, bottle).
