Invites!

I picked our invitations up on Monday! 

Since the wedding is a holiday weekend, we are planning on sending them out a few weeks earlier than normal. They will be in the mail THIS MONDAY!! eeek! That makes everything so REAL. Anyways, I'm totally obsessed with the invitations, I think they came out really well. They were hand designed and created by one of my friends, who also owns her own stationary company. They are very fun and bright, but I think they are still pretty traditional as well. 

Onto the pictures...
We did both outer and inner envelopes. The inner envelopes were lined with navy blue, which I think really pops the invitation and makes it stand out. 
The front of the invite
The back of the invite. You literally just flip it over to get to the pocketfold on the back. (sorry, I couldn't get that photo to rotate) All 4 of the insert cards fit right into the pocket and there's nothing to open or anything...it's all completely flat and just 1 piece of paper. 
One of the insert cards. I love the yellow line (all the insert cards have that at the bottom). I think it really ties in the yellow ribbon on the front of the invite.

We just have to put stamps on them this week and drop them at the post office Monday. Woo Hoo!!

They came out so lovely! The colors look so nice and I just love them. I am a huge fan of pocketfold invites (we did them too).

Once the responses start rolling in, it is so fun!
