homemade wedding invitations






these are our wedding invitations! completely made by us, using our scanner/printer, some water colour paper, tracing paper and gold thread. It worked out fairly cheap as we had a lot of the paper left over!

To go with the invitation was a map of how to get to the wedding venue and some other information. I can't show you these bits as maybe not a good idea to broadcast the details to the world, but I will put better pictures up after the wedding so you can see it all!

It was really good fun to make our own, although the printer did not want to co-operate after working hours and some stationers (ahem, ...Rymans & WH Smiths) insist that B5 envelopes do not exist when they obviously absolutely do, ok!

anyways, all jolly good fun! X
