I've beaming with joy with the our invitations. This is the biggest DIY project that I've done and I'm actually not sure at first that I can successfully manage to complete it. And yet here they are! Isn't obvious that I'm really happy with them? I'm proud to say that I've conceptualized everything in this project. Sure I did ask that Topher thinks, but knowing myself, I'm my own worst critic. So me being this happy is something else. I can't help but gush every time I've finished assembling one.
I decided on the color scheme, where to buy the paper, creating the pocket folds, designing the main invites as well as the 3 inserts. I created the map on the 2nd insert as well! Ha! Had to cut and measure everything precisely. I had to make sure that the "titles" (Entourage Cards, Location Map and Reception) on the 3 inserts will be precisely in line with each other when placed on the pocket. Designed the monograms and had it cut and adhered to their mats.
So without further ado, here are the invitations:
But wait, if you personally know me and you think you'll be invited to our wedding, close this window! NOW! I still want you to gush over our invites when you personally received them, okay? For everyone else, enjoy!

I initially didn't plan on placing a note on the Reception Card telling that a small/enveloped gift is preferred, but then Topher had to remind me that not everyone have access to the internet especially the oldies (planned to put the preferred gift at wedsite). So I included a note that states that we preferred small gifts that we can bring back here in Chicago after the wedding. I didn't explicitly put "monetary" or "enveloped" words because we still want to receive small tokens from guests!
