[She Writes]

Like a lot of brides, I am forced to unearth talents that may not even have been buried in my body in the first place, in an attempt to personalize and effectively cut on expenses for THE day.

As part of this wedding saving slavery, I decided to try my hand at DIY (Design-Invitations-Yourself).  I’d been toying with Adobe Photoshop for a while, but I’d never had the guts to show my output to anybody except for my Mom and my Goldfish.  So far, I’ve had great response from them – a motherly pat on the back, and a flick of a fin.

My idea for the invitation is a “storybook.”  Hence, the title of this blog.  It does NOT, I’d like to clarify, translate to a Fairy Tale theme.

These are simply “inspirational” designs for the “cover,” and may not appear as is on the invitations.  I believe in constructive criticism, so go ahead: lay it on me.  I can take it like a woman. 

UPDATE: On the advice of a few lovely ladies from our online community, I’ve added variations of a couple designs, and then some.
