They are not in the same colors as our wedding scheme - our Save the Dates were but Mr Fix It wasn't as in love with the color scheme as I was so we compromised and decided the invitations did not need to be in the same color scheme. However - the graphic elements you see on the invites *ARE* in fact being used throughout all of the stationery, favors, etc at our wedding...but we changed it from aqua (as seen in the invite) to turquoise to match the colors at the wedding.
Please excuse the quality of the images, I was so excited I took the pictures on my camera phone...it's actually not a bad camera but the lighting and such in my office is horrible. So what do you think?
Look at how perfectly the graphic on the inserts flows from one to the next so that it looks like one continuous design!
I am going to add some clear rhinestone embellishments to each of the little graphics (one on each side) to give it a little punch and bling it up a bit :)
The insert cards all lined up next to each other.
The insert cards stacked on top of one another to show the graphic flow :)
My favorite part! The double sided RSVP cards...these are the 2 cards, one for the 'yes' responses (on top) and one for the 'no' responses (beneath). The other side of each of these cards has the place for them to write in their info such as number of people attending, name, etc (see insert image above).
Close ups of the two insert cards with our pics showing excitement (jumping for joy) that they can attend and sadness (pouty face) that they won't be able to make it. :)
Mr Fix It and my mother did not like the Century Gothic font I selected for the information part of the invitations - like the font for the 'Please reply on reverse' in the photo above. They thought it was just a little too 'simple and plain'...so that is the only thing we are changing...going for something with just a little bit more 'pop' and something with serifs on the letters.
So after that change, I am eagerly awaiting their arrival soon. To save some money, we had her shave a little bit off the cost of each invite in exchange for us putting them together by placing the insert cards in the pocketfolder and attaching the belly band ribbon and stuffing the envelopes. Our personalized postage stamps have arrived! They will go on the black envelope along with the wrap around address label that has the invitation design on it. I will show you those as soon as we are finished assembling...my custom designer thinks she should have them shipped out to me by this weekend! :)
