Something paperless from the paper-lover.

We’re having a fairly small, relaxed, and super yummy rehearsal dinner. As per our request, JP’s parents are hosting the dinner at one of the local mexican restaurants. Of course, because I’m obsessed with designing anything that will stand still long enough for me to attack it, they let me do the invitations.

I made them without paper. Shocker, I know. Seeing as I’m pretty at awesome at waiting until the last minute, and seeing that we already had 20,000 things on our plate, I decided to go the interweb invite route.
I had read somewhere before that the rehearsal dinner should stand apart from the wedding stuff, but still have a similar feel. I took that to mean “drop the super-set wedding theme, and have some fun.” So that’s what I did. Fun and lighthearted, different from our wedding goods, but still goes along the same thread– love, hearts, brights.
I’m also a fan of the fact that I made the text scroll behind the bunting. I think I’m probably the only person that notices this or cares, but it entertains me. It lets me pretend like I’m working with paper!

So there you have ’em. The paperless invites from the self-proclaimed paper-aholic.

How did you handle the rehearsal dinner invites? Did you go with paper or rebel and ditch it?

    Wow! Those look fab. I love the color & texture of them.

    I’ve gotten quite a few e-vites to rehearsal dinners lately. It seems to be the new trend. I don’t mind it — in fact, you get a reminder email so there’s no “oh crap what time were we supposed to be there?!” the week before 😛

    Paper-aholic that I am didn’t have rehearsal dinner invitations. My mother-in-law handled the entire aspect of the rehearsal, including the invitations, and I think she just called everyone. Shock!

    These are so great! Beautiful but still whimsical. I think it’s the perfect combo for rehearsal dinner invites 🙂

    This turned out great! I just let my mother-in-law handle it. I thought about designing the rehearsal dinner invites but was too overwhelmed with thesis when the time came around. I picked out some cute ones from Wedding Paper Divas that were in our wedding colors.
