Ok, I have to be honest, I am that girl…I have always been that girl and even as I age and mature, in some ways, I will continue to be that girl. I don’t like trends and I get quite annoyed when time catches up with taste and subculture becomes the standard. So, I guess it stands to reason that when I see something I like go from obscure to trend, I tend to shy away. Case in point– at one point I dreamed of Mason Jars… then Pinterest was inundated with them and while I still think they are lovely, I can’t imagine them as part of my day anymore.
So, starting at the beginning, I decided I wanted our invitations (which will be going out in the next month *squeel*) to be our own little piece of history. Now, before I sound like a hypocrite, I have to say…I am all for re-purposing and taking a piece and making it your own. So, in this process, I have to give a shout out to www.weddingchicks.com and some of their amazing free printable downloads. With the help of a lovely monogram, we were able to have a base around which we designed the layout of our wedding invitations- a cute little book with our story.
Now we have the design and we are finalizing having them printed or running them ourselves. Once we have posted and shipped them all, I will post a picture of the final product. In the meantime, here is a little teaser to whet your appetite.
