Lace Wrapped Wedding Invitations – Rhode Island Invitations

There’s something special about lace that just makes us smile. Maybe it’s the textured, elegant fluidity or its graceful sweetness. Maybe it’s the swirls of joyous patterns that bring us to a state of enchantment when we see lace. Or maybe it’s the timeless sophistication that evokes unmatched exuberance.

Whatever the reason – we all tend to gravitate toward lace and ribbons. What better way to send an invitation to your closest family and friends for the most magical day of your life than with one wrapped in lace?

Wedding Menus and Table Numbers: Shimmery Silver with Monogram and Crystals

Silver is a perfect color for a winter wedding. Christy plans to use these silver menus and table numbers for her reception on December 28th. She was looking for some elegant touches for her tables that tied in her light, silvery color theme. Using some shimmery “tinstar” cardstock and Swarovski crystals, these were carfeully handmade for her upcoming wedding. Congrats Christy!

Couture Boxed Wedding Invitation – Handmade

Who says DIY can’t be glamorous? 😉

After many trials and errors…I have finally made my first wedding invitation in a box! I fell in love with couture invitations online, but was not in love with the idea of paying someone to produce an invitation that I felt I could make myself. With my home printer, Microsoft Word fonts, shimmery card stock on sale at the local craft store, and decorative details from wholesalers online, I figured out my own boxed invitation formula.

My fellow crafters, it IS possible to do it yourself. You just have to be willing to hunt around and have some patience. This is NOT something you want to do if your wedding is right around the corner. I expect that this will take me a good 2 months to put 75 of these invitations together (since I work at SeraCare Life Sciences full time, and am currently getting my M.B.A.). Once you get the first one done, make sure you have all the dimensions written down – even the exact length of the ribbon you used. That way you can  cut 75+ card stock squares, all at once, in the length and width you want, and get them done so much faster.

I will post a tutorial soon! I can’t believe I haven’t blogged in almost 2 months. It’s true that once you become a bride, things get very busy! Most of my past 6 weeks have been spent trying to get into beach shape and trying to devise the blueprint for an invitation that looked decent enough to share with you! Let me know what you think! I hope this inspires some of you crafty brides to take a crack at making boxed wedding invitations of your own!!

I’m hoping to seal them with a burgundy wax rose. But, I have to purchase a lighter and do a couple practice ones first before I try it on one….That will be a project for another day!
