I swap emails with some lovely girls who are planning their wedding, and often they share with me some of the handmade details they are making. Following on from these lovely floral luggage tag ‘save the dates’ from reader Charlie, I have some more wedding stationery to share this evening.

These invitations and envelopes are made by Caroline, one of my readers and bride-to-be, and her fiancée Mark. Firstly a big congratulations – they are getting married next week on 8th October!
For their invitations they used these free printable bunting invites from Wedding Chicks – you can even select your own colour scheme. They decided to stick the invitations into cards, and also included a photo from their pre-wedding photo shoot (see all the photos here) that had all the RSVP information on the back of it.
The envelopes they lined themselves, with husband-to-be Mark busy with the tube of Pritt Stick. Caroline told me they even had someone ask them where they got the envelopes from – a sure sign you’ve created something beautiful. Although Caroline said that they wanted their friends and family to realise it was in fact their hard efforts on Friday night that had created these pretty envelopes!
And finally, they tied everything together like a package with raffia. This is such a simple thing to do, but I agree that it really makes your wedding invitations feel that bit more special – or at least I’d like to think so!
