Yarny Wedding Invites

I thought you might like to see the wedding invitations G and I sent out... They are printed on white, so on our white blog background the edges kind of get lost, but you get the idea:

A dear friend designed them for us, and we couldn't be happier with them. Knitting (my passion)! Rollerblading (G's passion)! We're definitely going to get one framed and put it on the wall, I'm so in love with them. I never dreamed I'd had such personal, gorgeous little wedding invites for my low-budget wedding. Speaking of which, it's coming up REALLY soon! Please forgive my lack of posting in the mean time, I do have lots of knitting goodness to report on, but they are surprises!

I don't think I've said this yet, so CONGRATULATIONS! And these are really cute, kudos to your friend and I hope the rest of the planning is going well too!

What a beautiful invitation, and so personal! The wedding is sure to be an amazing event -- you must be so excited!

That is a great invitation! My best friend is getting married the day after yours. They're putting theirs together quickly like you are and also on a budget. I think it just makes good sense in today's times.

Those are gorgeous and awesome! I love them. Have you been to Wedding Bee yet? They have great suggestions (and contests), it's my recent obsession.

P.S. Congrats!

Bwa ha haaa! I'm glad you blurred out the time, date, loc, etc. Could you just imagine a bunch of us random knitters showing up, knit gifts in hand, saying "hey - you invited us!"

*giggle* I crack myself up.

Your invitations really are quite lovely!

They're so sweet! I love them - I think framing one is a great idea.

If you don't post until then...

Have a wonderful day.

Adriana said...

WOW! Those are gorgeous! Where did you get them done? They have the elegant but personalized look that I want in our invitations.

I can't believe your wedding is coming up so soon! Are you knitting anything for it?

Oh my gosh, Julie -- these invitations are BEAUTIFUL! And congrats on your upcoming wedding this Friday! So exciting! My wedding day was amazing and went so smoothly. Everyone who came called it the perfect wedding, and mine was low-budget, small and planned in under a month. I know yours will be amazing too and you'll look back at it everyday and have feelings I cant even explain when you remember it. Have fun!!
