Our Wedding Invitation Reveal!

I almost want to keep the invitations a secret for just a while longer, because I love them so, So, SO much.  They are by far my favorite part of the wedding so far.
Seriously.

They are the most decadent non-edible item I ever laid eyes on.
I luff them so.
And so what if people just throw them away before or after the wedding? I will always remember how absolutely gorgeous and stunning they are.

So, you can see I'm a bit obsessed with them.

One more thing, if you didn't catch my guest post yesterday about how we almost had to reprint all the invites, please go check that out now.
Then you can fully appreciate the depth of my love for these pieces of fancy cardstock.

Ok one last thing, promise, before the photo montage.
Huge, deep appreciation goes out to Sugar of DIYva Designs (& Nar, her partner, too!).
Sugar worked with my needy self, made countless changes to the proof(s), and is the genius artist extraordinaire behind the design.

So here they are.

(aka my heart attack)




































Needless to say, I'm more than happy with how they turned out.
And coupled with gold ink calligraphy on the purple envelopes?
Simply gorgeous.

The only thing better will be marrying Mike!

What do you think of them??

  2. uhhhhhhhhhhhh I think I'm commenting from work because I have to tell you how amazing they are!!!! I literally squeeeeeeed when I saw what it was, then whipped out the camera to take pics as I opened them, and then said "why am I doing this, Vicks will have such better photos of them with her awesome camera?" so I put the camera down and just opened... and they're on my kitchen table now, lined up in a row staring beautifully at me as I walk by.

    They are simply GORGEOUS!

    I love paper so much... and I noticed the hebrew and wondered where it came from, so awesome and thanks for the explanation the other day! I read it, just didn't get to comment.
