We've been MIA - missing in action! Really we've been in action (a lot of action) you just haven't seen any of it. On Friday, we will have seven days to go before "The Day!"
I don't know if you know this about our Bride but she also is a "Bargainista." She's always looking for a bargain as long as it is stylish and fabulous! She really did a good job of getting the most bang for buck with her wedding invitations.
She ordered a basic invitation and accessorized it with cardstock, rhinestones, feathers and ribbon to make an elegant and fabulous invitation.
We fabbed it up by adding the black invitation folder made out of black cardstock and a lot of elbow grease. The edge of the folder was paper punched with Martha Stewart's lace edge punch, yup 175 of them! The black cardstock was then folded so the top front would show the invitation's first line which said "Because you have shared in our lives."
A feather was tacked to the front with a gemstone. All the parts of the invitation were assembled inside the folder and it was closed with a silver ribbon.
We also included a card to help plan our song playlist to be returned with the RSVP with a place to list any songs that the guests would like to dance to.
