Wedding Rehearsal Invitation

OK…OK…I've updated yesterday's post HERE with a few of the portfolio and invitation measurements since I've received a ton of requests!


Next in my reveal of the wedding goodies is the invitation to the Wedding Rehearsal Dinner that was held last Friday night.  We had 32 in attendance at a wonderful Italian restaurant in Dublin called Salvi's Bistro!  Everyone was looking forward to their special dish…Pasta Salvi.  It's lasagne noodles with a creamy Alfredo Sauce and lots of cheese that is DEEP FRIED.  Oh my gosh…such DELICIOUSNESS you cannot believe!  Very rich and a small piece just hits the spot!  The rest of the meal was pretty special, too!


Here is the bride (Allie in her floral dress) and her attendants at the restaurant after they received a gift of their favorite wine, a monogrammed glass and a bottle stopper.


Here is Ross (Tempting Turquosie shirt) and his groomsmen…only Tony (kneeling) didn't get the memo to wear blue.  Not really…they just all showed up with blue shirts!  Too funny!  Ross got each of his groomsmen a personalized "bar" sign…each had their name and Ross choose a sign that fit their personality or likes.  They LOVED them…great idea!


Here is the outside of the invitation…the You're Invited is a Stampin' Up! retired stamp…and the designer paper is from the Sale-A-Bration Designer Paper package, Ice Cream Parlor.  The Melon Mambo print was perfect and I had a BUNCH of it left over!  The base is Night of Navy with the polka dot ribbon I purchased online.


The inside, however, uses current products!



I printed the information on Whisper White, then stamped the stem leaf from Stampin' Up!'s Fabulous Florets in Pear Pizzazz and added the Melon Mambo flower that I cut out and popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals.  Then I tucked in the smaller flower stamped with Melon Mambo on Pumpkin Pie.  I used this complimentary stamp set for the rehearsal items versus the Growing Green one on the wedding items…just to keep them two a little separate.  I stamped the envelope to match, too, but didn't take any pictures of it.  Sorry!


Stop by tomorrow…I'll have the Rehearsal Dinner favors!  They are darling!

Thank you so much for sharing all of this wedding gorgeousness with everyone.  My niece recently got engaged, and I need all the ideas I can get for her wedding invitations, etc.  You are always a great source of inspiration for me talented lady.
