Every bride-to-be knows the amazing feeling of finalizing a wedding detail. Whether it’s signing the catering contract, picking out your dress, or making the deposit on your venue, each time you officially decide on something your heart beats a little faster because you know that you’re now one step closer to the big day.
For us, the time has now come to choose our wedding invitations!
We’ve been doing our best to select things that truly reflect us and fit our theme. Our wedding is being created around the concept of “An Enchanted Forest Fairytale”. Our venue is the LA arboretum, which has the outdoorsy forest feel and we recently decided to DIY our own centerpieces so that we could create something more unique and whimsical.
As we began to think about invitations, we knew we needed something that felt magical. We wanted our guests to be delightfully surprised when they opened the envelope. With that thought in mind, we were ready to begin our search!
If you’re currently on the hunt to find your invites, you’ve likely stumbled across Wedding Paper Divas. They have so many beautiful options! Like most budget-conscious brides, the first thing I did was click the pricing tab. I didn’t want to fall in love with anything that was way outside of our budget.
We went to a bridal show about a month ago and saw invites costing upwards of $12 dollars, EACH! We have 125 people on our guest list, there is no way we can afford a pricey invitation.
Thankfully, wedding Paper Divas has prices that fit REAL budgets. I was so excited when I saw how affordable everything on the site was! I ordered us a sample kit (you can get one here) so that we could see how everything looked in person.
Being able to see and touch an actual sample, made it much easier for us to decide what we liked. There are a lot of details that get lost in a flat one-dimensional image!
Our Wedding Paper Divas sample kit also included examples of the different papers and finishes available. So in case you were wondering what the difference is between matte paper and ecru paper or shimmer paper, you’ll be able to compare them.
I’m very excited to say that we have found our dream wedding invitations! Can you guess which one we completely fell in love with?
In my next post, I’ll share our official selection! And I will take you through the ordering process. If you have any questions about how to get your free sample kit, just let me know in the comments below.
I’m looking forward to seeing what you think of Wedding Paper Divas!
