The very loooooong task of making my wedding invitations....

My sister is a graphic designer. I love DIY. So I was never going to buy my invitations! But where to start... I searched the internet and mostly got drawn to floral designs. Here were the pictures that inspired me...

 I wrote the wording and my lovely sister got on with designing.

    It took 2 days to print the invitations (and I still need to finish printing the envelopes).

    Here is the mock up of how we imagined the invitations would look and the start of the piles of printed card!

    They look beautiful image def worth it. I made all my sisters stationary and we looked through her wedding box yesterday, it was lovely to know we had made it all ourselves and it was personal to her.

    Thank you all for the lovely comments (far more enthusiastic than my family and friends)

    I am lucky to have such a talented sister. She hand drew all the flowers then scanned them in and added colour. She is sick of the sight of the flowers... shame as I need to convince her to make all the other bits of stationary that I need!

  • They look fantastic! I made my own and I know how long they can take! Weeks for me! It's worth it though when you get the lovely compliments and the RSVPs back through the door! Well done! x
