DIY stationery: mine

So I thought I'd start this month by sharing my own wedding invitation. I can't tell you how difficult it was to make a decision on this, so many possibilities especially as a wedding invitation designer! Our wedding is loosely themed around vintage travel photography to reflect our love of photos the fact we spent many years traveling the world together. I chose three simple square inserts, a formal invite, a map and a 'to do on the day list' in pale aqua and purple. They are held together in a petal envelope printed with a vintage map design. (I chose this because of the way the folds of the petal envelope remind me of a camera shutter) The invitation is finished off with little paper travel tags addressed to each guest and tied up with string.

Head over to Style Collective for our latest DIY tutorial for how to make your own petal envelopes.

  3. I know your pain!!! I designed about 12 invites before I settled on my design, and I still look at them and wonder what I could have/would have done next... :o)

    they are gorgeous tho, the colours are very delicate, and tags and string are so 'now' and I love that look! nice work ;o)
