Our guests have received their invites and now it’s your turn to get them!! Well, in WB form of course.
in the pre-stages
I made about 100 lace bows (We invited 300+ guests). I have to admit—our invites turned out a bit like… sextuplets (shout-out to to John & Kate Plus 8!). They were all a little different but special and adorable in their own way. Some have little bows, others have big bows, thin ribbon, thick ribbon… very random indeed, but we wouldn’t have done it any other way.
Here are the adorable paper clips I posted about earlier. Special Thanks Mrs. Tiramisu!
all the inserts and the inner and outer envelopes
thin ribbon, small bow
thicker ribbon, thicker bow
thin ribbon, no bow (I was getting really tired of bow-making!)

RSVP card front
the back – hopefully all our guests will write us a message so we can display them all on wedding day

In they go!
now for the inner envelope- stamps with our initials for embossing the flap

My attempt at calligraphy 2- outer envelope
I accidentally purchased 40 of these nitrile gloves for one of my labs (when I needed just one.) So I have 39 gloves just sitting in a box waiting to be used… for nothing… or so I thought! I asked Mr. Blush to apply the return labels on the outer envelopes. The clear label was prone to fingerprints and you could see the fingerprints on the envelopes. I looked over and saw Mr. Blush’s hands in these gloves! It was so funny and adorable at the same time! (It was definitely an “I love you so much” moment.)
Our assembly process lasted a good three days. We didn’t send them until two days after they were done because we wanted to hold onto them just a bit longer. Finally, I walked over the post office with two “Big Brown Bags” filled to the brim and let them go. A sigh of relief later, I walked home to an invite free home. It was great!
