one month

I am going to marry my one true love in one month. So I thought I would share some glamour shots of our wedding invitations today. I didn’t want to forget what they looked like, and how much work I put into them.

The invite is an embroidered design, and then I hand lettered them all. (I know.) The RSVP card is attached to a recipe card, and guests were asked to send back a favorite recipe with their response. I love my ma’s collection of hand written recipes, so I thought this would be a fun way to start our own collection. I also am really pleased with my stamp choices, and how they turned out in general. One of my best craft projects ever.

So real talk: It took me a very long time to make our wedding invites. Now, I did choose something crazy, and I totally knew what I was getting into, but there were times when I thought that they I wouldn’t be done until after we were already married. They kept me up at night. I thought about them all day. But even though they haunted my dreams, I loved making them. The guy would leave me sweet little notes of encouragement on top of my supplies. They gave my hands something to do instead of worrying about weddings and stuff. I was a little sad when I finished them, because the time in my life when I made our wedding invitations in my every spare moment was now over. So here is a little photo timeline of our wedding invites in the making.
