Well....my order came in the mail a few weeks ago!
If you haven’t guessed already….we went with the same look as our save the dates.I adored how the sparkle looked on the white background, so I just had to do the same for our invitations!
We choose to add the bracket style, use pearl white shimmer paper and use fancy gold envelopes as well, which went perfectly with the gold on the invitation.
For RSVP’s, we chose to do two separate things.
For the older generation and those far away, we chose to do traditional RSVP cards, also with the bracket style and a gold envelope. We added some fun wording at the bottom asking for peoples favorite songs to make it more whimsical and not so serious.
For those closer to us and more tech savy, we included a small card asking them to go to our website to RSVP. I really loved the idea of these as they helped us save money with smaller paper, no extra envelopes and no return postage.
Unfortunately, when I received the RSVP cards, I was pretty bummed. They were soooooo small! About two inches by two inches. Yes, it does say that online, but it was on a separate page that I unfortunately didn’t check. My plan was to put them in the envelope with the invitation, so I know some of them got lost inside. I'm sure some people only pulled out the invitation and didn't even see the card. We did our best to use all of the reply cards we had and only use a minimal amount of the insert cards, but I’m still not happy about it. I have a feeling a lot of people will be asking how to RSVP because they didn’t see that dinky thing!
Besides the tiny RSVP card, I absolutely love the look of our invitations….what do you guys think??
