Our Wedding Invitations

I’ve been dying to share our wedding invitations on my blog, and now that pretty much everyone has been invited, I can finally do that!

Glen and I decided to design the invitations ourselves. Glen is really awesome at Photoshop and he was able to interpret my very few ideas into something beautiful. We weren’t very fussy about what we wanted but we wanted to make sure that our invitations matched our Save The Dates.

When designing your wedding invitations, keep in mind your wedding theme and colours. This is a great opportunity to show your guests what they can expect on your big day! You can read about our theme here.

This is what our Save The Dates look like:

We have two wedding invitations:

1. For those invited to our ceremony

Glen and Kelly's wedding

2. For those invited to our very intimate reception afterwards:

We originally wanted to use the CD idea we found on Pinterest as our wedding favours and then we decided to rather use the CDs as our invitations.

Of course, these invitations would not have made it to our guests if it wasn’t for our incredible bridal party that slaved away one Sunday morning. They created the most efficient assembly line I’ve ever seen:
