BUT I have officially sent out our invites to our guests, so I felt it is safe to show them on here now! You have no idea how EXCITED I am for these. They are definitely my favorite wedding related DIY yet. I designed them myself using Microsoft Powerpoint (yes, Powerpoint!) because I am too poor and cheap to get Publisher or Photoshop.
I then printed them using VistaPrint. They are an online resource that has many of their own designs, but you can also upload your own.... onto tee shirts, invites, mugs, flyers, you name it. The best part, is they are always having awesome deals. Actually, my invites were recently posted on a friend's blog, who helps brides and other people with finding the best deals via VistaPrint. Check her out here!
I created our invites like a fan. If you look carefully, you can see a small button brad in the top left corner, that holds everything together.
And without further ado, here are my invites! Certain information has been covered for our safety.

|RSVP page. It is perforated where indicated, and guests can simply tear it out of the packet, |
fill it out, and drop it in the mail!
|This is a close up of the RSVP card itself. It is a postcard, so we didn't have to |
deal with the hassle of including an extra envelope.
|This is the back of the RSVP card. See, Postcard! :)|
|This was the last page, stating our website, and that you could find most any information there. |
We also gave guests the ability to RSVP online as well.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE our invites! What do you think? And for them to be so incredibly affordable, who wouldn't want to design their own and print them on the wonderful VistaPrint? I can't wait to hear what my guests thought about them!
