Invitations have been sent to the printer

After months of deliberating we finally ordered the invitations today! Originally, we were going to do a message in a bottle to go with the beach theme, but I was really struggling to make it elegant enough. I’ve heard that the invitations should be the first hint to the guests about the tone of the wedding. The message in a bottle invitations were really cute, but just didn’t fit the type of wedding we are having.

Once we decided not to go with the bottle, I started designing a traditional invitation set and a map insert. I purchased new fonts, created my own icon and even designed a monogram for us that we’re having made into a wax seal stamper. I had so much fun doing it that I am thinking about designing invitations and maps as a business.

We had three top choices for invitations and in the end we decided to go with a more elegant, classic looking invitation with a just touch of beach rather than a very themed invitation. I really love the one we picked and it’s more fitting with the wedding we are having. I can’t wait to see them. Keep an eye out in the mail around the end of July or beginning of August!
