wedding - invitation suite III

so, the bridal party was totally game for our October wedding,
the save-the-dates had been sent,
the color palette chosen,
& it was suddenly invitation time.
there is something completely surreal about picking out invitations to YOUR wedding.
it was a magical time.

I had known for a long time that letterpressed invitations would be the ideal for our someday wedding.
once we were engaged, I quickly realized that looking is a lot less expensive than purchasing letterpressed invites.
so! we did a mixture of DIY & letterpressed invite cards.

some of the DIY flair:
-hand dyed edges on our "dining & dancing" cards
-I designed "dining & dancing" cards
-hand cut + glued belly bands
-hand cut + tied "B's"
-invitation calligraphy by phoebe (sister-in-law) *wish I had a sample!

creating our invitation suite was a lot of work, & definitely had plenty of hiccups 
(like, only half of our envelope liner order arriving with no time to wait for more)
but certainly a labor of love, & a sweet time with family & friends as we put it all together.
