As you may recall, Mr. Milk designed our invites and we had them professionally printed by a friendor. They arrived in a box looking like this
Pretty overwhelming to look at initially!
A close-up of our RSVP card
And the thing Mr. Milk is most proud of (I think), the directions insert with his DIY map.
The belly-band (which I am most proud of)!
While this isn't the best picture, you get to see how shimmery the paper and lettering is.
The whole thing put together. Due to the picture quality, you can't see the glittery paper unfortunately, or how it makes the ink shimmer. I love how the D, A, & R align.
And all wrapped up with the belly-band. We ordered regular pocketfolds and asked our printer to cut the flap of the envelope to move the point from the center to the right-hand side.
A better, detailed shot.
And here you can see what the invitation says (click to enlarge).
There you have it ladies, our invitations in full! So far we have gotten great feedback for them, which makes Mr. Milk very happy. A few important people didn't have anything in particular to say, but we've decided to just ignore them :) All in all I am super happy with how they turned out.
Were you happy with your invitations? Did you DIY, take the pro route, or a combo?
