I am so happy to finally be able to share our invitations with you guys! They have been such a labor of love. There were so many times when I thought about giving up and just ordering invitations from a design company, but I knew if I could just find strength and look at the big picture it would all be worth it.
I had the writing printed at a print shop with the thermography machine, and they turned out FAN-FREAKIN-TASTIC!! I was so blown away by the price that I was given, because I was told and read about how expensive it was. I hand embossed all of the green damask elements on my invite. I also added the peridot Swarovski crystals just so I could have a touch of bling to the entire suite. All envelopes were hand written by me and the return address was a custom stamp. If you guys have any questions just ask and I will reply to your comment on this post.
