wedding invitations

My step son Nicky and his fiancee are getting married in October in Gretna Green. There are 45 close family going so only 17 invitations needed :o) Of course smarty pants me says "oh we can make them as complicated as we want" What a thing to say lol

LeeAnne had an idea what she wanted, she wanted little pockets to put the rsvp card and directions to the wedding, she had sketched out a trifold card. So I had a bit of a play and ended up making it gatefold with the pockets on each of the small flaps. She wanted pink as her colour originally and then she found her perfect dress which has a black ribbon under the bust. I just happened to have this spotty paper and she fell in love with it!! In fact she loves it so much she is having a polka dot wedding cake to match :o)

The stamp on the front as well as the cake on the rsvp card I found on ebay. We both fell for the Charles Rennie MacIntosh style stamp. The ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons and the paper is by Anne Stemplewska from Anna Marie Designs

This is the rsvp card, it is a dinky size, 9.5cm x 6cm! It fits in the wee envelopes you get with flowers :o)

Can you believe I forgot to take pics of them when I finished them at the weekend? What a total numptie I am ~ I was so excited to get them finished that I gave them to her then and there!! I had to wait til our invitation arrived in the post today lol As Nicky and LeeAnne already live together I said that the invitations, place cards and favour boxes would be our present to them. I am also going to do some thankyou cards for them as well.

The happy couple are very happy with them, in fact LeeAnne loves them! She loves how funky they are (oh to be 25 again and happy with funkyness lol)
