Save The Dates
We decided that we wanted to let friends and family know about the wedding approximately six months prior since we do have so many people traveling.
Mark wanted to incorporate the poker chips that I had shown him so we were able to attach the magnetized chips to the cards and mail them out.
NOTE the envelopes were not really sturdy enough and we should have included card stock or something similar in the envelope to protect the chip area. We had two returned envelopes and one was somewhat damaged while the other was very damaged and the chip was missing.
STD design: Delight Boutique
Poker chips: Best Wedding Favors
Seriously, one of the most awesome things so far has been the invitations. Again, we used Delight Boutique, who has been amazing to work with. Her designs are beautiful and spot on. I had seen the use of a swirl with the Las Vegas sign on another save the date on the Las Vegas board on the Knot (see below for the original inspirations and the credit to Gribbles from The Knot). I decided to use the swirl and the sign on the STDs. Then Alexandra incorporated the swirl onto the invitations and the inserts. I love it so much. We plan to use the swirl on the place cards, the wedding website (as seen here) and the table numbers.
We went with a pocketfold invitation with the following inclusions:
Invitation matted on the inside of the folder
Rehearsal dinner info card
Reception RSVP card
Day-after pool event RSVP card
Design, printing, assembly: Delight Boutique
Three Generations of Swirls and Signs:
First is the inspiration of the inspiration that inspired my invites. All thanks and praise be to Gribbles of the Las Vegas Board on The Knot who found the first example and her inspiration.
We decided that instead of numbers, we would name our tables after cities we had visited together with photos. Below are the 8 table numbers we designed. The grey line is the cut line. We are cutting them with a scalloped paper cutter.
