You are cordially invited!

We got the invite proof yesterday! I love our invitation vendor...she does completely custom invites and her stuff in fabulous! Here's the final draft we decided on:


It's layered paper. So it's grass green card stock, layered with navy cardstock, layered with white cardstock. The yellow band at the top is actually yellow satin ribbon, wrapped around the top layer of cardstock. All the printing will be done in navy.

Obviously I had to take out all the personal information, but you can get the main idea. I love that we're adding a little bit of ribbon, to make it a little bit fun and textured.

My favorite part is that it's actually a pocketfold invite...the green cardstock actually has a pocket on the back of it, where all of our insert cards will go. I really liked the idea of a pocketfold, but I didn't want anything that opened up or was too much. When she showed me that she actually had a flat pocketfold option, I was SO excited! So I get the convienence of a pocketfold, to keep all the cards in one place, plus it's very clean and traditional looking for the actual invite.

We'll have the inner envelope, and then the main envelope, which will be lined in navy! Yay for lined envelopes!

We're scheduled to send these out June 25th...umm craziness!!
