Our DIY Invites!

For our invitations we searched online but couldn't find anything we liked.  So I decided I would attempt to make them!  We went to the Paper Source and picked out an assortment of items for me to play with!  We got everything in our colors- dark blue, white, and silver.  After that we made a stop at Paradise Pier and picked out some Mickey punch out items they have at their gift shop as well as some fun scissors that cut Mickey edges.  Finally we grabbed some postcards and a Disney notepad.

Here's a pic of the stuff we started out with.

Here's what we created:

Inside (this one has no text because it was the first one I made, we printed the invite info on the rose paper in the middle):

I really love the rose paper.  It reminds me of Beauty and the Beast! 

We used an assortment of Disney postcards for our RSVP cards.  There's a pocket in the card where the postcard fits perfectly.

We also bought envelopes for the RSVP postcards.  Jared came up with the back of the RSVP on his own!  He put one of our engagement pictures on it and I love how it turned out!  

We did English ones and Spanish ones as well for my family.  We used the notepad for handwritten notes that we inserted into the invitations that went to the members of the bridal party.

I love how our invites turned out but I must admit it was a lot of work! We spent a whole Saturday with Jared printing invites and cutting silver paper into strips and me glueing & putting it together. This doesn't include all the time it took to label them all and tie the ribbon around each card.  We were so happy with the result though that the hard work was worth it!  I'm really glad we took on the task of doing them ourselves!
