Wedding Invitations for a Vintage Inspired Wedding
I thought I'd do a little post on wedding invitations for those of you I only know from afar!
I spend quite a lot of time stressing about the cost of wedding invitations. I had it in my head that I wanted those pouch style invites for a long time but seeing that the ones were available we're so expensive (around £5 each) I started to wonder if this was really what I wanted.
However during my blog reading I came across a post by Jeni Yesterday that mentioned Bride and Groom Direct for stationery.
Upon looking at their website I saw beautiful pouch style invites that I had longed for at the very reasonable price of £2-3 which was around half the price of so many of the others!
The style I opted for (upon the approval of my, at the time, fiance - thank goodness) were a lovely blue with the pink floral design and they were just what I had been looking for. Include in the price were envelopes for the invitations, printing costs, personalised messages, RSVP cards and envelopes and ribbons for tying it all together. It really seemed like a full package. You could also easily add notecards for a bit of extra cash but I printed my own to add to the invites.
I had a lot of fun practising calligraphy to write out the invitations although it got a little bit dull towards the end. I currently writing out thank you cards an I have to say that this task is no less dull and time consuming.
