It's that time of year again.
Two months and counting 'til my little sister gets hitched, and I have a couple of friends getting married later in the year, too. Lately they've all been talking about invitations.
I was lucky, marrying Jake - he designed and created our invitations himself. They were absolutely beautiful and perfect for our little country-chic wedding.
See the "MJ" in blue, intertwined with all the branches underneath?
Each invitation was hand stamped in blue paint from a linoleum cut that Jake made of his original design, then we printed the words (and birds) on translucent vellum paper and attached the two together at the top corners with blue ribbon.
I was really happy with them.
(Yay, DIY printmaking!)
Of course, even now that I'm happily married, I still love looking at pretty wedding stationery.
So, for those of you who might be getting married soon and actually need to be looking at this stuff, here are a few of my recent finds to provide ya with a little inspiration:
from Tear Drop Weddings
from Elum Designs
from etsy seller Anista Designs
from etsy seller Little Spark Creations
from Cactus and Quail
from Beast Pieces
Aren't they all so lovely?
There are a million cute designs out there. So, if you're a bride-to-be, I know the planning can get overwhelming, but try not to let it - just have fun! Enjoy every dazzling option set before you.
