Our Wedding West Invitation

July 22, 2008

Our DIY Asian-themed invitations are complete and they’re in our guests’ hands. It took a couple of weeks of paper research and probably 10 different design ideas. When I first saw this paper at PUA Naturally in Downtown DC, it was my “invitation dream” come true. It was the perfect paper.

Daniel and I dedicated an entire weekend to finish them up and it was all worth it. We had so much fun in our little assembly line. Daniel told me I wouldn’t be a good manager since I micro-managed every single step of the process.

I want to thank Daniel for putting up with my obsession and craziness about our invitation and helping me with assembling everything.

Ta-da! It’s complete!

    Hi! I found your site though I love your invitations! I’m hoping to do something similar, but was wondering where you found the card portion with the bamboo on it. We are most likely going to have bamboo plants as our favors, so we thought that a bamboo picture on the invites might be the way to go. I figure, if we’re having a ton of food and a Vienese hour (FI is italian), we might as well have some asian (me) inspired things too.

    Thanks for your help!
