“I designed my invite on Adobe Illustrator.

Cards and Pockets for the envelopes, belly bands, and pockets. [I also used a] paper cutter, glue, scissors, embosser, and printer.”



“I first printed all the addresses onto my envelopes using Microsoft Word.

Then I embossed every envelope with our address on back with custom embosser I bought on Amazon.

Then I glued the invite to the pocket and cut the enclosure cards to fit on a tier in the pocket.”



“Ask your bridal party for help! It’s a lot of work but so worth it!”
