Wedding Bells Are Ringing...

Just deleting some old documents on the PC and came across our wedding invitations I made for our wedding this year in Corfu, Greece. I fell in love with this paper a couple of years ago in a shop called 'Oliver Bonas' and by the time of our wedding it had been reduced from £3 to £1 per roll. I loved the colour and texture of the flocked velour and use it in a gatefold (?) layout for the invitations. As our wedding was very much a relaxed family affair, we could justify the cost of handmade invitations. Myself and hubbie literally had a factory system going on covering the blank white cards in paper and we designed the inserts and acceptance cards ourselves on MS Publisher and used the same designs and colour scheme for the table decorations. For other young couples out there, just remember: Who says weddings have to be expensive?

Products: Cerise Pink Flock Paper (Oliver Bonas), White Silver Embossed 'Wedding Invitation' Toppers (John Lewis), Gems (Papermania), Pink Ribbon (Spool, John Lewis) & Permanent Glue Pen Adhesive (EZ/ Stick It).
