Yes, we’re back to the wedding theme. With another wedding in the family, a request was made to us for some handmade invites and of course we couldn’t resist! Now, if you’ve read my post on ‘The little wedding invitation’ (http://thelittlepomegranate.wordpress.com/2012/02/26/the-little-wedding-invitation-2/), you’d know I’m a big advocate for making your own invites! It’s not as time consuming as you’d think, all it takes is a little effort, organisation and know how and trust me, you’ll be in love with the results. Ok, I know you’re looking at the last invites and thinking ‘yeah right that’s not time consuming!’ and to be fair, those ones were a little more complicated-but I promise you, you’ll have these ones churned out in no time! And in this current climate I know what the clincher is, price! Last time we gave you invites which cost ~50p per invite, this time they’re less than 20p each. How’s that for saving the pennies? Anyway, motivational talk over. Once we had narrowed down a style that our Groom liked, we were on our way designing the invite. Tree and I have been working on our computer skills so this time we decided to make it completely original-…
Having come back from a beautiful weekend away in Geneva for a friend’s wedding, I’ve got weddings on my mind. (While I’m here, I’d just like to wish my lovely friend, who I shall name Sunshine, and his wonderful wife a lifetime of happiness together). What a ray of sunshine he is. Anyway, back to the purpose of the post- I thought I’d share our handmade invites with you. As I’ve mentioned before (http://thelittlepomegranate.wordpress.com/2011/12/27/the-little-wedding/), we quite like to make things ourselves and having searched high and low for invites we decided to make it a DIY job. We made quite a few, 300 (which in hindsight was a bit excessive), so it took a few days to complete but both being uni students we had enough free time! We also had a brilliant team of helpers who worked diligently. The results were beautiful; they were exactly what we wanted, a fraction of the price (~50p each), and made for some brilliant memories and our recipients had no clue that they were a DIY job!
