Bridal Talk Tuesday - Invitations!

My most important wedding task lately has been figuring out invitations since they need to be sent out in about 6 short weeks!

And it..... has. not. been. easy.

First of all....cost. I am all for ordering a printable invitation suite, printing at a printing shop, and assembling on my own (or with the help of my lovely bridesmaids)! I want something pretty, but more or less invitations are pretty low on my budget totem pole because we all know that while they look pretty on peoples' fridges for a few weeks..... they all end up in a trash can sooner or later!

Second of all, my wedding colors are turquoise and tangerine, which I love. I am so excited to have a bright and colorful wedding. It reminds me of a sunset over the water.... so that makes the theme of our wedding beachy.....or nautical?.... or ocean-inspired? I'm not quite sure.

I want something that looks bright and pretty.... but invitations with starfish look too tropical, and invitations with anchors look to manly, and every shell invitation I have seen is just blah!

What I need is a graphic design friend.... but I don't have one, so thank goodness for etsy and also this ah-mazing website with lots of wedding templates and clip art to make your wedding diy dreams come true, haha

Here are a few potentials... I'll tell you what I like in another post. Opinions please!!! :) Or ideas of other websites I can scour for cute and affordable invitations, looking at wedding porn (oh style me pretty, how I love you) has been my favorite hobby as of late! :)

Thoughts??? Thanks in advance, y'all!


  1. I love them all! The third one is my absolute favorite but I really love the yellow one too. I really hate how expensive invitations are and this has been a struggle for us as well! Thanks for linking up!

  2. Such big decisions! Your colors look beautiful together!

  3. I think the first two are my favorite.... I'm all about a monogram. ;) I can't wait to see what you decide to go with--your colors sound so beautiful! :)
