DIY-ish invites: the hidden pieces

Our reply postcard (which is my favorite part of the whole package) and the reception info insert...









We printed the postcard on 220lb Crane Lettra, which is a big reason why I love it so much. BUT just so you know, it gets totally torn up coming through the mail. It must be the sorting machines or something.

Thanks to Bird and Banner for their inspiring copy, not to mention the most beautiful invites I've ever seen... I may have borrowed a bit for the post card.

Hi there, I absolutly LOVE all of your wedding papers...your invites and envelopes are beautiful, I posted them on my blog because they are so fun and inspiring! But to have a post card for the reply is genius! I love the thought and personal touch you put into these, they are fantastic!!

Love! See, we're trying to not do reply postcards, and be all old-school about it, but these are so great it almost makes me want them.

Would you mind telling me what font that is? It's the perfect mix of formal but still fun!

Thanks!

Those are beautiful! Is that a script typeface you're using or is it custom calligraphy? I love it!

thanks everyone for your nice notes!

Courtney and Lara, yes the typeface is calligraphy from the amazingly talented Jenna Hein.

Oh SO beautiful! we printed each piece of our wedding suite on crane 220lb. I designed a post card themed reply card as well. I thought about sending the postcard through the mail, but at the last minute, I put it in an emvelope. Bird and Banner was a huge source of inspiration. I'm so glad I found my way to your blog (via thoughtful day.)

So, I do not really think this will work.
