Addressing invitations in the living room.
Piles of envelopes in the Post Office, being stamped by me.
Inner envelopes. They were hand-sewn along the sides by my momma, using an orange thread. They feature a cut-out center to allow the invite to show through. There is also a half-circle cut-out on the back to allow for the invite to be easily pulled out.
Once pulled out of the envelope, this is what the guest is looking at. I love the bow-tie detail.
On the back of the owls, this is what you'd see. Isn't it fantastic?
There's a map card in the invite, too, but I didn't think you'd need to see it. Above is the reply card, mad-lib style. These are so fun to receive!
After sewing and stuffing envelopes, Mom posted on her facebook that, "This morning I sewed envelopes for my daughter's wedding invites. Nothing 'traditional' about them! (Turned out great, though.)."
I hope you all love them as much as Brad and I do.
