Etsy Saves the Day Again…   1 comment

So a few posts back I showed you a couple invite ideas we had for the wedding. Well, Mr. Darcy, Mama Austen, and I all decided book themed invites would be perfect. So after doing some research, I decided I would be DIYing our invites, kind of what I was trying to avoid. Another Etsy search later I had partially eliminated my DIY issue. I found this lovely piece at a wonderful price.

These are from seller KwirkCreative. Aren’t they cute? I am so in love. So here is the plan for putting it all together.

1. The invites (pictured above)

2. Penguin Post Cards as the RSVP cards

3. Book Plate Insersts

There’s all the elements with their book theme, but I also have plans for packaging them. So I found a few inspiration photos on my favorite wedding blog, Wedding Bee.

Do you see the pattern? Belly Bands, Twine, and Hanging Tags. So there you have it our Semi-DIY invitation suite inspiration. Mr. Darcy will be making the belly bands. I will be cutting out the hanging tags and insert cards, Mama Austen will be addressing the envelopes and writing out the RSVP cards (if we can’t devise a way to print them). Then we will set-up an assembly line to put all the elements together. So we all have our jobs. Ready, Set, Go!

Were your invites a team effort? Did you order them from an invite company, completely DIY, or semi-DIY them?
