— Tania’s Story 



I had a very specific vision to our wedding invitations. I wanted them to be classic, timeless, and elegant. As someone who works in the wedding industry, I see a lot of wedding colors and instead chose to go mostly colorless with ivory and accents of gold. I had a very specific vision to our wedding invitations. I wanted them to be classic, timeless, and elegant.

I designed the invitations myself but was lucky enough to have a wonderful friend come over for a “wine and envelope assembling” evening.

  • Krylon Gold Leaf Pens
  • Self-inking return address stamp from Etsy




Assembling the invitations was very easy!

1.) I decorated each envelope with the Gold Leaf pens, and stamped our return address on RSVP and mailing envelopes.


2.) Once I had decorated and stamped each envelope my friend and I created an assembly line.


3.) She added postage to every invitation, I stuffed the invitation (4.5 x 6.5″), RSVP card (3.5 × 5″) & RSVP envelope (3 5/8 x 5 1/8″) into each outer envelope (A7).

4.) Then we both hand addressed each invitation.

Don’t be afraid to order samples! I ordered 10 different envelope colors and took the pen to every color until I found what I had envisioned!
