It’s so wonderful to see how creative people get with their invites! Jodi Miller and her hubby-to-be are one of those couples that really took some time to make sure people would be greeted with a lovely intro to their wedding!
Here’s what Jodi herself had to say about these babies: I knew once we got engaged that I wanted something new and creative for our wedding invitations, something that hasn’t been done before, but also something to reflect the style of our wedding and allow our guests to have a “sneak peek” into the actual day. We wanted our invites to be personal and completely handmade and really give our guests something special.
We constructed our invitations out of thick board, burlap, twine, and these cute cameos we purchased from PoppyLovesParis on Etsy. Kurt went through tons of glue cans to get this burlap to stick.
We glued blue envelopes, purchased from the Paper-Source, on the inside of the invitation. I cut off the flaps of the envelopes then glued strips of doilies on the inside as an extra detail.
Our inserts were somewhat of a trial, as I had them printed and then coffee-stained, but they unfortunately didn’t turn out how I envisioned, so the inserts were printed on cream paper purchased from the Paper-Source.
Each guest received a different cameo…these cameos will also make another appearance at our wedding in another fun detail.
And last but not least…our invitation film!! When we got engaged we had toyed with the idea of doing some sort of stop-motion film for our wedding invites, we didn’t actually expect to create one…but we did! We spent hours and hours on this film, that Kurt and I created ourselves…we hooked up a wireless remote to our cameras and clicked away…again we wanted something to reflect the style of our wedding!
