Paper Extras {tying everything together}

I am a sucker for paper - stationary, thank you cards, name it. So when it comes to my wedding, I get giddy over not just the invitations, but all the 'extras.' Here are some images inspiring me...

I came to the realization recently (after getting a quote from a designer) that these things do not come cheap, so there may be some DIY in my future! I won't be able to do everything so I'll also have to get creative with different vendors. Knowing that it's going to take more than just hiring a designer and approving the design, I realize this all will require some extra work. But I know that the savings and getting to have more of a hand in everything will make it worth it.

I was really inspired by fellow E&I blogger who recently posted about her DIY invitations - check them out! I also love Kim's, here.

Did you DIY all or part of your wedding invitations and/or the extra paper goods? How did it go for you?

Love Print Your Party

Some of the newest work from Print Your Party!

The major reason why I love Print Your Party is because you can get all the little paper items that you wanted, but for less money! Printing it yourself saves so much money you would be spending, and the designs as fantastic and innovative!

We used them for our engagement party and for our invitations! They were able to make them how I wanted which was really awesome!These new designs just make my head whirl with new bright ideas for my wedding parties :)

Wine Corks

This is such an adorable idea! We found these early on in the planning process, and held onto the idea since it is such a unique and fun detail to add to a wedding! Liz is having her wedding at a Winery, so these will fit in perfect with her decor.

I have always been really particular when it comes to table numbers and place cards. I guess it is just because there are so many things you can do with them that it becomes a fun part of the wedding to create Can't wait to see these on the sign in table all lined up. Only 4 months of planning to go!!

Check out the Corkey Creations Etsy shop to get yours! Pictures of the final product are still to come!
