Invite Pictures! :)

So here's a few of the 175 or so invites that we made.
The paper was purchased from Their customer service and quality is outstanding!
The invite is made using the Champagne Pearlescent Cardstock and the pink wrap (it slides off) is Pink Azalea Pearlescent Cardstock with a gold cord wrapped around it.
I purchased the digital branches design from for I think about $3 bucks! :)
I was able to change it up to the color I
It was easy to work with too.
So anyway...that's the invite.
The groom wanted a bit of the gold branches on the envelope edge so I did that too.

ps...i scribbled out the address just in case somebody might have wanted to sneak in on our party by suprize!! :) ha ha

Look what I found!

I just found one of the neatest websites!
has really nice invites that you can just download and print at home or send off to be printed. Wow...FREE templates, and they are really cool ones too!
I find that designing an invite can be fun, but challenging so this is a great find for me.
I will try to get a picture of the invites I made for my niece's wedding to show you.
I did not use this site, but might have had I seen it earlier.
We have almost all of the invites mailed out now, and I forgot to take a picture before, but I do have a few more to make quickly so I'll get a quick picture before those go out.
Anyway......if you want some great downloaded invites head on over to
And here's a little hint they talk about on their site ~
Heavy paper is key to tricking everyone to think you bought expensive stationery shop invitations.

Thank You!

Thanks so much for all the input on the candy labels.
It seems as if most of you think labels would be nice.
I am going to try to work on some and see how they turn out and go from there.

Here is one of the 19 centerpieces.
We really need 30 but I think I've talked the bride into doing something simpler for the other 11 tables....hoping will look ok to have 2 different centerpieces!
We had seen something very similar to these centerpieces and thought they looked easy to do.....well, they haven't been ALL that easy!
And gold spray paint is expensive!!
But we are getting close to finishing them.

and a really bad close up picture of the label that will go on the centerpieces......
