When it came time in the wedding planning process to order my invitation suite, I was immediately drawn to the calligraphy handwritten addressing on beautiful shiny gold envelopes. I was also immediately discouraged when I saw the price of these beautiful envelopes.
Of course I was determined to figure out a way to have this type of envelope as part of my invitation suite.
For this project I went to my local Goodwill and purchased the cheapest frame in the size and color that went with my wedding theme.
I then used my Silhouette Cameo 3 to create and cut out the design using gold Cricut vinyl. Measured the width of the glass frame to determine how large to cut out the design. Choose your favorite font and design, cut, weed, and place the design on your frame.
My father build a redwood stand to hold the frame and I had the florist add a nice floral wreath to add the finishing touches.
The one thing I absolutely loved is that it definitely set the tone for guests arriving to the wedding ceremony.
The downfall is that the glass made the wording a little challenging to see at a distance. Looking back, I wish I had either used a different color vinyl so it would’ve been easier to see at a distance or placed a plain paper in the frame so it wasn’t clear. But regardless I still love the welcome sign!
We hired Kawaii Foto to add a bit of fun to our wedding day!
They were super friendly and professional. They do all the set up (and they were so quick about it that I didn’t even realize it was actually all set up), and I love that before your event (during the planning phase) they work with you to personalize the booth to your needs. I highly recommend their services if you’re looking for a photo booth for your next event.
