I used Chena Design. The designer is a good friend of mine, but she's been a-mazing to work with. She is opening her Etsy shop by the end of this month. I'm obsessed with her hand-drawn monograms.

If you scroll through her blog, you'll find my Save the Dates and Invitations (which photographed darker than they really are - they're purple!).

We don't really need to send invitations because our guest list is so small that we could just give everyone the information (we'll only need about 10 invites). But I like the idea of sending them, plus I'd like to have the keepsake!

I think I want to get these. They don't seem to have a minimum order, plus I just love the design. FI is on board and he likes them. We just need to finalize a ceremony time with our officiant and then we'll probably order them.

Oooh, I love stationery! I hope you don't mind an old married lady popping in to share!

We ordered our invitations from Crane & Co. They were hand engraved, white on black. The response cards were black on white, of course, but I can't seem to find a picture of them. Here's the invite:

My mom calligraphied the envelopes:

I had one of our invites framed opposite the engraving plate:

Haha! Thanks, slg! I was having a hard time with the wedding map. I realized that I left some personal info on there, but mistakenly ended up double posting, and just made a mess of things. At least I figured it out!

haven, your invite is pure class. But that map! Heavens! I remember your mom did your calligraphy...does she do artistic things professionally?

I just scrolled through that blog and I LOVE YOUR INVITATIONS! So beautiful. Your friend is really talented, and her blog is delicious. I'm going to bookmark it right now. (I hope you don't have crashers looking for mashed potatoes at your wedding, by the way . . . :lickout: Mmmm, mashed potatoes.)

My mom is a middle school technology teacher, actually. I wish she would surrender to her creative abilities, but alas she will not. She designs a lot of temple newsletters on the side, which is kind of creative, I suppose. Our joint dream is to open The Haven (an experiential learning retreat) so we can spend our days flitting about from one creative immersion experience to the next. All in good time, all in good time.

Seriously, though, your invites are BEAUTIFUL! Gorgeous calligraphy, too.

Haven - wow. Just wow. :love: Those are incredible.

I'm having the hardest time uploading a pic for some reason, but I'll post mine as soon as I figure it out.

Okay, here we go. I got mine from H2Cards, which specializes in Chinese invites.
