The envelopes with stamped return address and myriad of RSVP cards have been done for about a week now and hiding in plain sight. (We're already using the vintage train cases we collected to use in our wedding decor for storage!)
While we've had a general idea of what we wanted to include with the invitations (the design of which had been done since end of March), until today we hadn't finalized the wording. Wording is done and insert design is done! (The idea of stacked wedding inserts came from Miss Cola, a Wedding Bee.) Here's a sneak peek of what they look like.
The invitation will be printed on Banana Paper Card Stock. Inserts will be printed on Banana Paper Printer Weight. RSVP cards have been printed on Canon Color Printer Paper.
Luckily we don't have that many total invitation suites we need to put together (87 total) as this design involves a lot of paper cutting. 4 cuts for the invitations. 3 cuts for the Directions insert. 4 cuts for the Around Town insert. And another 4 for the Sharing insert. That's a total of 7.5 cuts per invitation (2 per sheet) for a grand total of 653 cuts.
The original insert design was a tri-fold (no cutting involved) that would be slipped into the envelope with the RSVP card and invitation. It's a good thing we're done. Who knows what other creative things the Wedding Bees will share.
Did you find yourself rethinking one of your DIY projects after you saw another similar DIY project? Did you stick with your original plan?
