Notes from the Future "Mrs." - Luxury is in the details

When I ordered my Save the Dates, I also ordered liners for my envelopes. This was a detail that we decided was a "must have". There is something about beautifully lined envelopes that feel so luxurious. And I knew I wanted to start my wedding off with gorgeous Save the Dates enclosed inside beautifully lined envelopes.

Sometimes, the more detailed you get with any element in your wedding ...the deeper you have to dig into your pocket. This includes invitation add-on's (like envelope liners, for example). What is the solution to this budget-pressing problem? Make your own liners! Sure, it takes a little time and care, but the result is beautiful and your options are endless. Just a trip to the craft store and you can have any colored or printed paper that suits you. Your guests will love receiving these in the mail!

I couldn't agree more - a lined envelope does feel luxurious and indulgent, not just for those who are lucky enough to recieve one, but for the sender too!

Thanks so much for including my little how to. It was a very pleasant surprise!
