DIY Invitation: Jill & Matt

No fancy graphics nor multi-color ensemble here. But by golly this has gotta be one of the most brilliant, creative, darling, type-a-licious, as-unique-and-personal-as-it can-get invites I’ve ever seen. Yeah, I could go on… but I’m gonna stop here and let you guys soak it all in. Swoon!

12 Barnyard Chic Bride { 06.11.09 at 3:04 pm }

this invite is adorable. I love it. My favorite part is the end where it says “…and eternity to follow”

13 Tenille { 06.11.09 at 4:30 pm }

brilliant.

14 Dog-Eared { 06.11.09 at 10:30 pm }

oh my gosh, this is the most amazing invitation i have ever seen. ‘eternity to follow’ is the perfect way to wrap up such a thing, i think :)

15 Bridechka { 06.12.09 at 12:10 am }

Awesome.

16 Paige { 06.12.09 at 12:31 am }

Absolutely amazing! And I agree with everyone else that “eternity to follow” is the sweetest thing ever! I wish I had thought of that for my invitations!

17 Stefanie { 06.12.09 at 8:38 am }

Absolutely amazing. Love the story and the sentiment (except for the anti NYC stuff haha)

18 Julia @ Mélanger { 06.12.09 at 8:59 am }

This is adorable. I guess there are no rules in what should go in an invitation. :)

19 Maria { 06.12.09 at 10:16 am }

Absolutely brilliant! Thanks so much for sharing.

Wow. Almost makes me want to get married again! Fabulous, fabulous. (We did a cartoon with a similar sort of running story for our wedding, but that was 20 years ago now! Perhaps I was on the vanguard of DIY weddings?)

Why is the bride’s name so much larger than the groom’s? That looks odd.

Before you realize it you will find yourself scrounging

project for Miley Cyrus. You can find tons of them to get a very low price as well.
