— Judith’s Story —
My (now) husband and I got married on August 17, 2018 at mountain top of Hudson Valley, New York. I was inspired by the colors of the summer- floral, greenery, something fun & romantic.
My colors were gold, rose gold and blush pink. I wanted to be soft & full of sparkle at the same time.
Pinterest and a Facebook wedding group helped me a lot. I always knew I wanted a full wedding suite (with inserts & belly band).
My husband has the passion for graphic design, he actually helped me picked the template from C&P (we used Flower Bouquet). I have an eye for detail & a sense of creativity, it was a teamwork altogether.
My mother in law helped me assembled the Invitation cards, RSVP cards, Reception & Details card.
- Custom Printed Invitation Card (4.5 x 6.5″) – “Flower Bouquet” on Snow White
- Custom Printed RSVP Card (3.5 x 5″) – “Flower Bouquet” on Snow White
- Custom Printed Accommodations Insert (3.5 x 5.75″) – “Flower Bouquet” on Snow White
- Custom Printed Reception Insert (3.5 x 4.25″) – “Flower Bouquet” on Snow White
- A7 Mailing Envelope (Euro Flap) in Vellum White
- RSVP Envelope (Euro Flap) in Dusty Rose
- Monogrammed Seal Laser Cut Belly bands in Gold
- Cardstock paper in Pink (see ours here)
- Glue Tape Roller
- Cricut Explore Air – for cutting mats and addressing envelopes
- Custom made address stamp from Etsy

I created the files using the Template maker on C&P’s website. Once I had all my materials and tools, the (fun) assembly began..
1.) The process first started by cutting the card stock paper into 4.75x 6.75″ with the help of my Cricut Explore.
2.) The mats were set in place with glue tape to the back of the A7 invitation cards. (Thanks Mom in law for the help!)
3.) I then assembled the RSVP cards with guest count and numbered at the back of it so I know who the guest was just in case they forgot to write their names. (Thanks Facebook wedding group for this tip)
4.) Four inserts were assembled from smallest to biggest, so that the insert headings could be seen. These 4 were carefully wrapped with the laser cut Gold belly band “W” (The initial of my husband’s last name)
5.) After the invitations were fully assembled, my Cricut Explore & I spent the next few days to a week of writing everyone’s mailing address onto the outer envelope. I then stamped our address on the return label.
I DIY’d most of the details of our wedding with the help of my family & friends. From flower table centerpiece, to spray painted votive candle holders, to the invitations. It was indeed fun & rewarding! I’d do it again in a heartbeat. Don’t be afraid to ask for help, it is a big task! Have fun and don’t stress yourself too much.
Congratulations, Judith & Brian!
