Amanda & Matthew Tie The Knot!


All my invitations!

Change of Plans Cards

We had already sent out save the date cards for the big city wedding.
I sent handwritten cards to everyone letting them know we changed our minds. I know it's bad etiquette but we did our best.


We verbally asked our guests to get a guest list created and then discussed dates and travel with confirmed guests.
Even though they had confirmed, I wanted to give them a formal invitation. Since we only needed 4 invitations, I went the DIY route.

I used brushed metal tins to hold shredded filler in 3 of our 4 colors.

I found cute triangle shaped bottles to add sand and shells to.

I picked up nice, colorful leather passport covers for everyone.

I found velum sparkly envelopes to slip the travel papers into. I printed resort confirmations and the information for the flights.

Finally I printed invitations that I designed myself on in their freebie section.
The paper is flat for printing on one side and shimmery on the back.

I added a couple more shells to the box too.

Total cost per invite: ~$12

At Home Celebration Invites

These were so easy and fun for me. I ordered a fabulous design from Ashley's Party Inspirations. She was super fast! I printed them off on photo paper to have a shine, and back them using good old rubber cement and a sparkly, pearl shine card stock. I picked the card stock up at Office Max and I got my purple envelopes from The Paper Source.
