Finally finished my invites and I’m so excited about how they turned out!! Everything that I liked was at least $800 and the invites I loved were more like $1500. Those special details like ribbon and guest addressing add up really fast!
We’re getting married in October at Sundance mountain resort. I love more organic looking paper and decorations so once I saw pictures of the raw / deckle edge paper or whatever it’s called I was obsessed!
I talked to 4 different printers and none of them would print on the paper I was willing to order myself! I know some people have tried just printing on the deckled edge paper at home but I was nervous it wouldn’t work. So I decided to get my invites printed on big sheets of natural felt paper and rip them myself. And they look exactly like the real thing! I downloaded the handwritten font from dafont.com for free and just designed these on Microsoft Word.
Please be kind tho... the ones I took pictures of are the ones I didn’t mail because I thought they looked too messy or crooked.
