One Step Closer

I am excited to be writing this post! As some of you already know Mr. Milk and I have recently been working on our invitations. We've been looking at colors, fonts, wording, paper, envelopes, monograms, ribbons, you name it we've looked into it! You can read about what Mr. Milk was up to a few weeks ago

So without further ado, here it is:



Hahahahaha. Just kidding! Mr. Milk found this while browsing for invitation wording and we thought it was HILARIOUS! Not sure where he found it so no source (let me know if you know).

So back to being serious. We have debated over what items to purchase. Mr. Milk has some good connections in the printing business due to his work, and we are fortunate to be able to use these connections for our invitations. We have decided that we want pocket-fold invitations. We can get the paper for the invitation, inserts, and mats from the printer, so all we needed was the pocket-folds and envelopes.

So over the weekend we made the purchase. I found a wonderful site called Cards and Pockets a while back and bookmarked them in my favorites! I encourage you to check them out as they are also offering 25% off their entire site until November 15th! I even ordered a sample set with the colors I wanted for only $10 with free shipping. I highly recommend doing this. We were able to play around with these and get an idea of the inserts we wanted, the sizes and so on. 



I ordered them in pearl metallic cause I just love the metallic papers. Our invitation mats will be a tiffany blue. Neither of us was keen on the European Envelope, so even though the other style only comes in cream and white, we opted for those. I can't wait to get them! I know its only the outside but it means we are closer to making them happen! Stay tuned for more to come on the invitations!

How are you invites/stationary coming along?

3rd: I was totally going to tell you Cards and Pockets! That's where I got my stuff for my STD's and if I was DIY'ing the invites, I would have used them for the pocketfolds. Love that you found them...very affordable and great selections. :)

Can't wait to see it come along.

Our save the dates we got printed and they were great. But we decided to print our own invites to save money. And now here we are 52 days before the wedding with lots of lovely card and envelopes that still need to be printed. Ahhhhhhh
