A friend of the family did her own invitations and they turned out really amazing. She’s big with scrapbooking…i know i could never do as well!

I remember my favorite part was the inside. Instead of having all of the information just on one piece of paper, she had a slip of paper for the announcement, one for date and time, one for the RSVP information, and one for the registry and and website information. It was kind of built like a ladder of importance. The announcement was at the top and showed, then under it was the date and time (and the announcement slip would just be lifted up), then under that was RSVP and contact information (time and date would be able to be flipped up), then registry and website information.

I thought it was pretty creative and it looked really neat.

Definitely get one of the printable invitation kits that you can find at designbetty

Print the text in a nice orange font, and then dress it up with fuschia ribbon (or vice versa). Many craft stores has a whole range of ribbon colors and carry special hole punchers that just have 2 long slits – perfect for feeding ribbon through.

Just remember that adding ribbon and things will make your envelope bulky, so you probably won’t be able to use regular stamps. They will be a little more expensive.
