Invites Are Out The Door...

My wedding invitations finally arrived last Thursday. As testament to Blush Design Studio's detail to attention, they arrived beautifully wrapped, ready for me to tear into like a kid at Christmas!


After two straight nights of assembling these babies with Andrew (luckily, Andrew's mom kindly took on the addressing duties), more than 100 envelopes are now ready to be mailed in the morning:














Even after staring at these things for hours on end, I still love them to pieces and don't regret the many hours spent designing them.  To preserve the element of surprise for those of you who will be receiving one in the mail, I'm going to wait a little bit before doing the grand reveal. My wonderful letterpress designer is also going to blog about them, so I'll be sure to share that link as well. Stay tuned!

Yay! Can't wait to see a pic when it's the right time. After you send out the invites, it's a funny feeling...like there is no turning back now! Good luck!

Joyce!
The invites are GORGEOUS!
Perhaps my favorite ever! And they are so soft...is that a weird thing to notice?
Love, Camille

Yay! Thanks Camie. I'm not going to lie, I really, really LOVE them myself. :) And no, it's not weird to notice the texture! I picked a thick 140 lb paper to show off the letterpressing, so yes, I'm a paper nerd.
