I am not sure if putting together my sister’s bridal shower invites was more exciting for her or for me. As a lover of snail mail, I believe that every aspect of the package is important. The envelope (including washi tape, stickers and stamps) is the first impression for the invite and the wedding will be held in Maui next month so I stayed true to the Hawaii theme with subtle nods to pineapples and LOTS of colorful flowers.
The invites were designed by ShowerThatBrideShop on Etsy. Heather, the creator of the shop, was extremely helpful when it came to customizing some pieces and she delivered the files almost immediately. I had never worked with a shop like that before but I was able to take her design files to FedEx and print them at their print center, which worked out perfectly because I picked them up the same day. Perfect for when you procrastinate, like me.
I hand-lettered the envelopes and got a little crazy with stamps and washi tape. They’re more fun that way. Links to all of my supplies are included below
