Our DIY Stationery Update

My wedding shoes finally arrived in the mail yesterday, and they are fabulous! I was a little worried to order them without ever having seen them in person much less tried them on for size, but they are absolutely perfect. I love checking things off my to-do list, and this was a big one for me since I’m so picky!
In other news, Joe and I are in the process of DIY-ing our invitations. We’ve done literally everything from scratch including creating the design, printing them ourselves, cutting the paper, gluing the paper layers, and affixing the embellishments. It is a lot of work but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t having a blast doing it. To be honest, I don’t trust anyone BUT Joe and I to make the invitations. As graphic designers, it’s a big deal to us that they look perfect and we figured we’d do as good a job as any professional company, but for for half the cost. They really are quite gorgeous and I can’t wait to post photos of them after they are mailed out to our guests in early August.
Also on our stationery to-do list? Design the monogram to be used on our photobooth printouts and the dance floor lighting. Print and assemble our DIY programs. Design and print the Menu cards. Cut and assemble the escort cards. Print and embellish the RSVP cards and Directions cards. Finish the timeline cards for the bridesmaids. There is much to be done! But we’re making progress. Here’s a sneak peek of the sticker design we made that will be pasted onto the box of each guest favor:

It’s true that we have a lot left to do, but we have a very clear direction on everything so I’m not at all worried. It’s a good thing we don’t have any summer vacations planned because it looks like we will already be extremely busy! That’s okay though… we love spending time together while making the stationery for our wedding. I’m so lucky to have such a helpful fiance! : )
