I had a go at making an invitation earlier, I'm not 'crafty' so I thought I'd keep it simple! My mum thinks it can do without the heart motif as well, what do you think? I'm in two minds? Sometime I agree they look elegant and understated, then I look again and think they look cheap and too bare?!\n\nThis is just a trial run, the actual cards I'm buying are a bit bigger & square. I think I am also going to get a wax sealing kit and put a gold seal on the envelopes. If I make 100 of these it will cost £36 plus whatever it costs for inserts, which I think I am going to get printed and cut to size at the local printers.\n\nOn the subject of colours, clearly this invitation is cream & gold, which would be my preferred colour scheme. HOWEVER (there's always a however [img]http://www.bigday.co.uk/public/style_emoticons/default/dry.gif[/img] ) all the detailing/beading on my dress is silver, and there's also an unusual not quite peach, not quite pink colour in it.

If there were 2 colours I'd say I DIDN'T want as my colour scheme I'd say pink or silver, I just don't like! I'm so awkward!!! \n\nAm I overthinking it? Will it be fine having a gold/cream colour scheme with a silver/pink dress?
