I shared this post back in September and ever since it hit the blog our readers have been going crazy for it so I thought I would share it once again with all of you new brides to be. Rustic Wedding Chic has some pretty crafty readers! Recently a bride emailed me her DIY vintage inspired wedding invitation and I knew I had to share it with the rest of the Rustic Wedding Chic community. For all you DIY fans start taking notes because I guarantee you will want to make your own invitations after seeing this! The bride even gives us the inspiration behind this design and the materials used to create this look.
The design of our invitation is very simple and i wanted to have that vintage feel…because that’s the theme of our wedding. The color i chose are earth tones which became the color palette of our wedding with some hint of pastel to add some girlieness.
I used our home printer to print the invitations and maps/directions on vellum papers. I used recycled taupe brown fiber paper for the pocketfold, recycled taupe brown envelops for the outer(biggest envelope) and RSVP envelopes. I used 5-1/4×2-5/8 manila tags as the RSVP card. To get that vintage price tag look, i soaked the tags overnight in a bowl with 5 tea bags then i laid them out to dry. Then i used martha stewart Craft punchers to design the edges of the invitation, RSVP card, and pocketfold.
I ordered custom rubber stamps from froyoo through Etsy for the return address and RSVP.
