Can you believe we have reached this point already? I’ve had such a great time planning my wedding. But the bridal shower was completely out of my control which is kind of nerve-wracking. I had my sister do the planning, and I kind of checked in every so often to make sure things are on track.
Picking a Place
So, first things first, we looked at a few restaurants we thought would make a nice shower. We found a cute Italian place in Collingwoods, II Fiore. Small spot but gives off a very Italian feel with paintings on the wall. We decided to host it for about 30 people. We put down a $200 deposit for that date. We picked a June date.
Now let’s get into these invitations. I decided to get blank invitations from Michaels to create my own invitations.
I loved the card, but the envelope was a little boring, and I wanted something on it.
Making the Invitations My Own!
I went on Pinterest to find the wording and picked and chose which ones I liked best. The photos below are the ones that I used as inspiration. I liked things about both, so I combined them. I really liked the font, and the color order both of them have. I preferred the phrasing join us as we honor the bride-to-be better than the first one.
Next, I found the font I wanted from Dafont.com and downloaded it. I believe it was called hello honey as well as times new Roman. I adjusted a word document to fit my invitation then I printed it on my cards. After the words, we prepared another word document with the addresses. We added a cute little design above the name of each person. I also picked up wedding stamps from the post office. The result was exactly what I wanted. It was a team effort to do but worth it. After sealing the invitations, I added a sticker on the back to add something to the back. I was very pleased with the outcome.

But that’s all I have for my invitations. That’s for stopping by; I’ll be back in a month to update you some more on my experience.
