If you want to know how to make some awesome glitter letters like those, check out yesterday's post!
Alright, apparently there's an invitation theme, Becky at A Girl and Her Sparkles talked about wedding invitations too... except she talked about avoiding costs by making your own. For some of us less creative people, there are still ways to save money, and get some just as awesome as hers!
I'm sure you've all heard of Etsy, it's the sight of creative geniuses, where they sell stuff they make that people less creatively inclined can but it! Praise Jesus. If you're anything like me, you'll scroll through Etsy and think "man I could make that.. totally.. it can't be THAT hard.." 6 months later when you STILL haven't made said object, it's so much easier to order it... Call me lazy, but I just know it won't turn out as cute as what they already made for me to buy..
I was searching for wedding invitations that I liked which is a greater feat than I originially thought it would be. I mean just search "Fall Wedding invitations" it gets out of control quick. While I was going to every wedding invitation website that offers free samples, I stumbled across Etsy's invitation page.
"Wow, $20 for an invitation? that can't be right.. let me check this out.... ooooo it comes with a save the date annndddd RSVP?... hmm intrigued. Downloadable file? and they print it off? no just downloadable file.. interest sparked. Ok so I can purchase this file with all the appropriate information on it and print it out myself? Only $20-$40? Sold, sold, and sold."
Then the hunt begins, you find one you love, purchase it, add your info to it, and they send you the file! You can print it out at a print shop, or at home!
Some printable invitation examples:
These are just a few invitations that I found, loved, and favorited. I'm obsessed with the big flowers on these invitations. I just have to find some the right color to fit in with the Tuscany/chalkboardy/wine theme..
Be sure to check out Becky's post to see how she made her awesome invitations!
