Sending Out the Invites!

We've been working on our wedding invitations since Sunday.  We bought kits from Hobby Lobby and decided to print them ourselves.  I printed all of the invitations and reply cards on Sunday and started addressing the envelopes.  The actual printing of the invitations and reply cards was really easy and quick, it's the assembling of everything that takes so much time.  Every night for the past four nights, we have hand addressed envelopes, put return labels and stamps on the envelopes, and put stamps and labels on the RSVP card envelopes.

There is a ribbon that needs to be tied in a bow around each invitation.  Let me tell you, after tying almost 200 of these, I'll be happy if I don't have to tie another bow for a LONG time!  But it was worth it, because I'm happy with the way our invitations turned out.  In case you forgot, this is what they look like:

Of course, we only had about 25 invitations left to do and we ran out of stamps!  So when I go to the post office to drop off all of the ones that are done, I'll have to pick up more stamps and finish the rest up tonight and mail them out on Saturday.

This is a huge check mark off of my wedding "to-do" list and I can't wait to start receiving reply cards in the mail!!



  1. I was so excited when I started receiving our RSVP cards back!

    1. I love getting mail, especially when it's not a bill, so I'm excited for these to start showing up in our mailbox :)

  2. YAY for some fun mail coming your way!!! I think I still have all of our RSVP's as weird as that is!! LOL

  3. I'm glad to know it was simple to print, we're also doing ours and i decided if it got out of control i was just going to take them to Kinko's.

  4. These look great! I love that you guys did them yourselves!

  5. Got mine in the mail today and they look AWESOME!!! :)
