Wedding Invitation








My brother is getting married next year. I offered to make their wedding invitations. It's going to be a huge job, they are inviting over 200 people. I am looking forward to it though, I think it will be fun. His fiancee is going to help me work on them, and I've had other offers to help too. (Thanks Chrisi!) My brother's fiancee hasn't been able to pin down an invitation that she likes yet, so I decided to make a few samples and send them to her. I thought if she saw a few, she could choose her favorite and I could get started working on them. This is one of the invites I made, and it is my favorite. I hope she chooses this one, although I think it will be the most work out of all the samples I sent to her. I dry embossed the daisy on the front & inside using my favorite Lasting Impressions template. I'm sure by the time I dry emboss 400 daisies (2 for each invite), that template won't be my fav anymore! Her colors are going to be brown/pink and she'll be carrying daisies. It's going to be an outdoor wedding. (The wording on the invite is just a rough draft, and yes I am aware accommodations is spelled incorrectly! I'll get it all figured out before I actually start mass producing them!) Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate it!

I like this one, too. It's gorgeous. Love the layout & daisies are one of my favorite flowers. A big project but rewarding. You will have fun doing it for your brother. I have made invitations for 2 of my granddaughter's weddings (150 @)& also for my daughter's 25th anniversary (100).Not quite so big but fun.
