Invitations & DIY Liners...

The time is near! Our invitations go out this weekend :) I did get a little crazy crafty and decided at the last minute I wanted envelope liners. So, after a quick stop at Paper Source I recruited D to help me...

D after 3 hours of cutting paper. He's so cute.

Another hour in...I turned to this...

The final product, roughly 5 hours later.

I must say I do love how they turned out- but honestly should have just decided on them earlier and had Anita (my wonderful stationary designer I have mentioned many times before) take care of them for me. I'm not the craftiest, and needless to say it was a long and stressful process.

Because I'm in a picture sharing is D in the Memphis airport being a doll and carrying my bag for me...the bag looks good on him huh? :)



  1. Hey Ali; I think they look amazing! Great job! I DIYed my invites too :)
    Have you checked out my weekly column Wedding Wednesdays on the Wedding Stories blog?

  2. Ohhh they look so so cute, I love them! Gosh this summer after the baby is born I really need to get organised with my vow renewal planning process....but by then I will be able to turn to a glass of wine to help too : )!!

  3. The envelope liners are gorgeous! It's one of those beautiful details that guests will remember. Just discovered your blog! Love it, looking forward to reading more!

  4. I want to do my own liners too! You'll need to tell me how you did them. Annnnd I may or may not also want to steal your invitation designer. Isn't imitation the sincerest form of flattery?! :)

  5. oh my gosh ali those were totally worth it...they look BEAUTIFUL!! you did a great job! and yay for d for helping (both in the airport and on the cards! so cute!) hehehe :D

  6. Ohh they look great with the liners! Great job! :)

  7. They look beautiful! I agree that envelope liners make such a huge difference - well worth all the work (and wine)! :)
