What do you do when your wedding is already creeping over budget, and you haven’t even sent out the invitations yet?
We have talked all about my little sister’s upcoming rainbow wedding, and hoo boy is is getting close. It is now less than two months away! We both realized last week that it was high time to get those invites in the mail.
Ours arrived yesterday (they sprung for rush shipping from VistaPrint), and they look beautiful! Today she gave me the thumbs up to share them with you. I have changed a few pertinent details, but now I give you…the Rustic Vintage Rainbow Prairie wedding invitations.
For the front of the invitations, we went with a clean and simple palette with the earth below and the sky above, shadowed by flowers, grasses and butterflies.
On the back it is all about the rainbow. Looks a little familiar, right?
You see, the background of the Leave Me to My Projects logo was originally created for seester’s wedding, but I loved it so much that it slowly but surely crept onto the blog and became the rainbow-splosion theme that you see today.
On the back of the invitations, we included hotel information, maps, a timeline of the wedding – everything guests might need.
For the reply cards, we again went with the simple colors. Unfortunately, we (I) totally forgot to put an RSVP by: date on there, but seester solved that with a little slip of paper and a pretty paperclip attached to the card.
If you have not been introduced to the magic that is StoryBook Creator, it is simply the best digital scrapbooking software out there, and you can get it for PC or Mac.
As you can see, it can be used for anything from making photo albums to invitations, cards, graphics and more. With the huge range of art kits available it can get a little pricey, but still far less so than traditional scrapbooking.
Best of all, this only took me a couple of hours to put together, and only because I kept getting distracted and meandering over to Pinterest.
