Wedding Invitations

Some updates about my wedding...


So since I've already asked the most important people here, the next ones in line were the rest of my entourage and VIPs. I decided to make 'official invitations' to make it more special. Here's what I did..

1. Design and printed out invitation cards. Something more informal for the kids and a formal-ish ones for the adults. I also printed out the needs-to-know/ info for my Page Boys and Flower Girls, aka attires. 

2. I bought gifts!! What's an invitation without bribes incentives anyway ;p I wanted something related to my wedding theme, something garden-ish feel. Girls were easy. I got them colourful cute soft toy bugs. For the Page Boys, it was slightly harder. What to get that are garden related? Gardening Tools? Kinda out my budget. Anyway, I popped into Toy 'r' Us with Lydia and managed to find some tractors. Red and Green. The yellow didn't really count but I bought it just cos the colour looks good with the others. Oh, and tiny little bug clips for the adults. 

3. Next, I made holes on the cards, dug out some ribbons from my craft drawer and tied them nicely with the gifts. For the adults invitations, I clipped the cute bugs clips at the top. 

4. Lastly, I stalked them and delivered the bomb legally binding documents. None of them can back out now. Muahaha!!! Nah, I did asked them nicely and so far none turned me down. Yay!! Am crossing my fingers that the last person wont turned me down. 

It was a joy to see my gifts happily received. Especially when all 3 flower girls were together hugging their new pet. They are going to be so cute ;p These people are important to us and we wanted to make them feel special. I hope they did. Thanks everyone!

p.s. Hot of the press!!! My invitation cards are ready. Its so pretty. Thanks BIL.

It goes without saying that you carefully planned this out. I like how your invitation is designed simply, yet comes with a personal touch. Particularly the ones for kids, where you personally attached toys and stuff based on the role they’ll play on your wedding. I find that move sweet and quite brilliant. Cheers!
