I recently helped my mom make bridal shower invitations for a bride-to-be who will be getting married in Costa Rica. My mom wanted a subtle tropical theme and a unique wedding invite that she could design on her own. We browsed the wedding inspiration boards at the Evanston store for ideas, and loved a sample we found of a palm tree stamped onto a baby envelope. We decided we would print the invitation onto an A7 card, then attach the baby envelope with satin ribbon.
Originally the baby envelope was only to add visual interest, but in the end guests loved it because inside the envelope we included a small card with the bride and groom’s registry information. Instead of carrying around the whole invitation, guests could slip the small registry card into their wallet – so handy for when they’re out shopping.
Good job, Mom – they’re beautiful!
