October 2010 Weddings

AW and crappy PIP: I'm having a celebratory lunch because...

...my invitations are officially O-U-T!!!  Dropped them off at the post office at lunch time.  It feels so good to not have to deal with them anymore!  Like Kristen, this has been my LEAST favorite task so far.

Oh, and last night when we were finishing them up, I realized I hadn't taken photos of them.  So, I just snapped a few on my cell:


Wes lovingly did all of those wax seals.  He was the best helper!!


Ta-da!


The "invite" part of the invite.  The top is embossed!


The enclosures: Directions, Reception, and Response.  The tops of all the enclosures were ALSO embossed.

And there's a picture of how I did my wraparound labels/envelopes in my bio.

I feel SO GOOD!!!  AAAH!

    You ain't kiddin', L!!!  I'm my own worst enemy.  My mom pleaded with me to just print the enclosures and save myself the work of embossing them.  The invites didn't really have to be so difficult, but I wanted everything just so...

  • YAY!  They look great!  I'm so happy for you! 

    I was going to do wax seals, but my fiance put his foot down on how much more detail I could hand add to each invitation because he thought I had enough on my plate with the printing and assembling and ribbons and rhinestones.  Now I'm going to show him this and be all "SEE?!  SEE HOW GOOD IT LOOKS!?"  Haha.

    That's pretty funny, because Wes was the one to suggest and insist that we do the wax seals.  I do really like the look of them.  Tell FI to lighten up!!  lol

  • I won't lie, Liz, embossing is a pain in the butt.  See if Kal or a BM will help you out.  Wes and I did the embossing together... I stamped (because that's the more detail-intensive part) and he sprinkled embossing powder and used the heat tool.  It really helps to have it be kind of an assembly line!

    They look great Jackie!! And how sweet of Wes to help you out - he did a great job! :) And I agree, an assembly line is a must for DIY invites. 

    You'll have to let us know when you get your first RSVP ;)
