This weekend Luke and I spent all day Saturday addressing, stuffing and stamping our invitations. It was a big undertaking, but I’m so excited they’re out! Invitations were low on our list of priorities for our budget, but I think they turned out super cute!
I enlisted the help of a graphic designer I work with a lot for my clients to help create a custom-designed invitations based off this photo from our engagement session.
We loved that this photo showcased the Chicago sky-line since our wedding it a trip for most our guests. We used this as the photo for our save-the-dates to get people excited about the city and then carried it over into our invitations.
I worked my friend to create invites that played off our yellow and green colors while maintaining the feel of the photo. What he created was a bright yellow and white design showing the city scape and our sillhouettes. The copy was in green and we chose a metallic, grass-green envelope.
I’m really happy with how they turned out and we got it all for a steal!
You may also notice we incorporated some social media into the invites by giving our guests the option to keep their RSVP stamp and instead send us their response on the Wedding tab of my blog.
I’m excited to start getting more RSVP’s- it’s getting so close!
