Invitations by Sunshine & Ravioli

The invitations have been one of my favorite parts of the wedding planning process 🙂 During the very early stages of planning, I remember telling my mom “Eh, who cares about the invitations, no one really remembers what they look like and they end up throwing them away. I want to spend very little time and money on the invitations.” That is, until I discovered Etsy and the amazingly, creative individuals like Stephanie from Sunshine and Ravioli. I first contacted Steph in February about designing a “vintage inspired” invitation. She charges a $25 consultation fee for all customized work. If you end up placing an order, the $25 goes towards your order. During the early stages we emailed back and forth about the colors, design and wording of the invitations. All of her work is hand stamped, and I had a hard time deciding between a bird, and an oak tree as the image of the invitaions. We ended up going with the oak tree, as it is reminiscent of the venue where we will be married (in two short months!) Part of our evergrowing pile!

I opted for a glassine bag with a handstamped sticker seal (instead of the more common inner envelope) –not a very good picture

The invitation and reply postcard came tied together with raffia…

Don’t mind the crooked raffia in the next picture, I tried to manuever the reply card out (without having to untie it)
