Three. and. a. half. weeks...

Yep, in three and a half weeks time I shall be a married woman...oh my! It doesn't seem like that long ago that I first mentioned it here and I keep thinking back to what I was doing three and a half weeks ago and that seems like it was yesterday.

I have a feeling that the 29th is going to come and go in the blink of an eye, and am trying to enjoy this whole getting ready for a wedding thing...even the more stressful aspects, though of which there doesn't seem to have been many. Yet!

Anyway, I always thought that invites are the first thing a guest will see about a wedding and so kind of set the tone. I really wanted to hand make ours and screen printed them onto recycled card. They went out wth a little A6 inkjet printed RSVP card with the cutest powder pink A6 return envelope. The info was printed on pink recycled paper and the whole lot packaged in a merry looking Kingfisher blue envelope...

They aren't the most extravagant invites I have seen in my wedding research, but the are simple and pretty and give a good idea of the relaxed festivities to come...(in THREE AND A HALF WEEKS! Goodness!)

I love them! They have a really nice tone and I think you're dead right in saying they set the tone for the event - hard to do!

Obviously I don't you in "real life" but they feel like they represent you really well :)

Oh perfect! I'm a fan of your printing on the brown anyway makes for a lovely card. Love the bird saying 'yay' and the little fella perched on the rsvp card, cute. One can never have too many birdies especially yours. Not long now!!!

Hi,

I think your invites look great! Really cool and simple and different from the cream cards that most folks seem to go for!
