Wedding Invitation Posters at Etsy
January 18, 2008
I found this idea on etsy (one of my very favorite websites) and I loved it so much, I just had to share. These super sweet wedding invitation posters are from "Unless Someone Like You Designs" who came up with the idea when she wanted to create something unique for her own wedding. She designed an 11x17 wedding invitation poster which was sent to guests in a mailing tube. Such a brilliant idea. I am obsessed with mailing tubes- they are a totally fun way to deliver precious paper products safely- and really, how excited and intrigued would you be to come home and find a mailing tube amongst all of your other mail? Mailing tubes can be found very inexpensively at PaperMart (another favorite of mine) and can be dressed up a number of ways with cute labels and stamps. I would make the RSVP in a postcard style (I figure an envelope here would be a bit cumbersome) and either attach it with a ribbon or soft yarn around the rolled poster, or I would create a band out of patterned paper to wrap around the poster and tuck the RSVP card in gently. I may even make a tiny tag to hang off the yarn with which I would display a wedding website address for more information about the wedding. (In place of the other typical invitation inserts- map inserts, accommodations info, reception cards, etc.) Or I may have some fun with the mailing tube caps- and display info directly on them!
The poster would also be a fantastic alternative to a guest book- it could be framed and matted and set out for guests to sign. After the wedding, glass can be added and it is ready to hang!
"Unless Someone Like You Designs" will create a custom designed poster that reflects you for $150. The cost includes the price of the design only. The image will be digitally sent for you to have printed at a printer of your choice. Check out the site for more ideas!
You have just experienced one of the most incredible events of your life. The person who you love most in the world has popped the question and you have answered 'yes!' The whirlwind of the wedding planning world has now opened- questions and excitement from friends and family, your childhood wedding dreams re-visited, wedding magazines taunting you from the shelves of the check out lanes. You are finding yourself with a new language. A vocabulary full of words such as Fiancé, Chivari chairs, fondant--words you had no idea that you knew and now they seem to run off your tongue effortlessly.
I know how fast everything seems and how overwhelming it all can feel at first, so I created this blog to help answer questions, give advice and inspire new ideas.
