i thought i would use the DT forum on some different looks/layouts on the following invitations.

yes, i know that i spelled invitation incorrectly inthe poll, but i can not edit it

please keep in mind that colour is not the issue, as they come in many varieties. some info: the first two invitations come from www.claudicalhoun.com

the third invitation is from www.rexcraft.com and the symbol on the front is "love" in chinese

invitation 1

I love the look of the first one (and the style name ), and I can just imagine it in red to match your gown!

But I chose the third one because of the symbolism, and it's very pretty. Again, I imagine it with red lettering and accents (why would I think of red for Cinnamon Girl?)

Am I confused? Aren't you eloping? Maybe these are for the announcements, or there are people going to your elopement.

Nonetheless, I like #2. Simple, elegant, and why does it have to match your dress? I sure hope not. Even if that's "supposed" to be done, it won't in my case. The paper I chose for ours is brown recycled paper with little flecks of other colors in it. But, I am going low budget (making them myself). I think I spent $30 total on the paper for the invites/thank you's/RSVP's/envelopes. Clearly, I am NOT the wedding etiquette expert in any way, shape or form. I had to be informed what a "nosegay" was a few weeks ago. Boy, will a lot of the more traditional people in my family have something to talk about.......

I love the third one with the love symbol.
It seems to suit you two.

well we are eloping, but we are inviting our friends to the celebration of our wedding after the fact. eloping just takes the pressure out of planning one HUGE day. this way we get to break it up do everything our way, and still celebrate is with our friends and family.

no, the invitations do not have to match my dress. it if were up to me, i would scribble directions on the back of a subway napkin for everyone, or just e-mail them. these are more for my mom and grooveh's grandparents(out of respect)

i was thinking that maybe the paper would be shaped like number 3, in a blue paper like number 1. the symbol would be embossed in platinum ink. inside, the layout would be like invitation 2, with platinum ink. in the upper right hand of the inside, we would paste in a black and white photo of us with silver photo corner thingees.

i dunno...i will probably change my mind a million times by the time we decide. grooveh has been the perfect groom..."whatever you think, honey!"

AAH, thank you. I am NOT going nuts, just yet. I was sure LA, then Tahiti (who would forget Tahiti????).

I like the combo idea you've got going on. Now to get someone to do it!
