This is the final post in a week-long series of amazing DIY projects from Kimberly at Inspired Goodness from a wedding she designed. We already shared her ceremony canopy, ribbon wall, chair back signs and tissue paper garland and fabulous photo-display wall and seed packet escort card favors… but check out these cute invites, too!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Part of the winning package for the Lucky in Love Contestants included a set of custom wedding invitations. Since Dan and Marquina were only responsible for the printing fees, we worked on a suite that fit into their budget.

The invites were designed to be economical and efficient and we choose to treat the RSVP cards as a postcard, eliminating the need for a second envelope. It also gave us an opportunity to add a map of the area where the wedding took place, Red Hook, Brooklyn, which can be a bit hard to navigate for those not familiar to the area.

The top card featured the main invitation. On the backside was an angular pattern influenced by the industrial feel of the venue. The bottom card had a detailed map of the area. This card was one and a half the size of the top card. It was perforated at the end, where the RSVP card was attached. Guests were instructed to tear off the RSVP portion and mail back. The backside of the map featured driving directions and parking directions.

Cost Breakdown for (150) Invitations:

• Printing Costs: $350
• Envelopes: $45
• Eyelets: $5

Total Costs: $400

Thanks, Kimberly, for sharing so much delicious (and do-able) wedding inspiration! We’ve loved hosting you this week! Come back again soon, y’hear?

    How about using wedding hand fans as wedding favors? You can have a pic of bride and groom on one side and vows and other info on backside. These are great for outdoor weddings and make wonderful keepsakes that are also functional. Check out http://www.hand-fan-factory.com for more info.
