These DIY wedding invitations have a sophisticated look but
can be done at home with the right paper and font.
It was created for the wedding of the couple for whom I made this wine themed bridal shower invite.
The invitation features the bride and groom’s name boldly in my Dom Loves Mary Stylistic Font.
The flourishes are from my Belluccia Flourishes font.
I used Adobe Caslon Pro for the text.
The shimmery, white card stock ( Curious Metallics Ice Silver)
is backed with a black card stock called Boutique So….Silk.
Both are from FasClampitt Paper.
One thing to note, the white paper is a thick card stock.
If your printing at home, make sure your printer can handle it.
Otherwise you may want to make color copies at FedEx Kinkos.
I know their machines are able to handle thick paper.
You would need to print 2 on an 8.5″ x 11″ then cut to size.
The invitations are packaged in these gorgeous stardust gold pouches
from Marsupial Papers. The invitations are secured
to the pouch with double stick tape and the rehearsal dinner invitation
and RSVP card are inserted in the pouch.
This was printed on the other side of the RSVP post card.
The vineyard ornament added the perfect touch to this wine country wedding.
It’s available from Laura Worthington’s Azalea Smooth Ornamental Fonts.
On the other side of the RSVP card, I used
embellishments from my Belluccia Calligraphy Font.
( The pointing finger and border around the return address.)
Having an RSVP postcard saves money since you don’t need an envelope.
And the return postage stamps are .34 instead of .46.
The pouch was sealed with a monogram backed with black.
The best way to do this is to attach the monogram to the pouch just on the sides so you can tuck the end of the flap into the monogram card.
This allows for easy opening and closing by the guests without tearing up the invitation.
I addressed the envelopes by hand using the lettering style of my Dom Loves Mary Calligraphy
font then used a beautiful wedding cake stamp.
You can have beautiful invitation and envelopes like this by purchasing my Dom Loves Mary font !
Here’s a video I created to show you how to address envelopes with the font in Microsoft Word.
