Truth be told, Nate and I began planning parts of our wedding before we were even engaged. We were friends for a long time before getting together so once we started dating, the whole process just happened fairly naturally. We didn’t know all the intricate details but we knew we wanted things to stay fairly simple and cost efficient. One of the first topics that popped up first was the guest list and whether or not we wanted to send out paper invites or use an online service. Luckily we both agreed that by sending them online, we would not only save money, but it was more environmentally friendly in the end. Win, win!
I started by looking at Paperless Post since I use them for every party and gathering already and really liked their wedding invite options. I love that you can customize them to your liking, plus they have a really pretty selection of designer styles, including Rifle Paper Co, Kate Spade and Crane & Co. I had already considered reaching out to them to see if they wanted to collaborate on a post about the beginning steps of our wedding planning, but they beat me to the punch! I have to say I love it when projects effortlessly fall into place with a brand or company that aligns with my style and aesthetic, and this is definitely one of them.
I mocked up a couple invites below that I thought were pretty and elegant – which one is your favorite?
More to come on this soon, so stay tuned! xoxo
