There’s been a casualty in our wedding planning endeavors.
I have fallen head over heels for everything letterpress.
This is a problem, considering that beautiful letterpress invites cost significantly more than digitally printed – not to mention DIYed – invites. And considering we could have ordered about 500 full-package letterpress invites with what we’ve spent on our dog Charlie in the last two weeks, we have to pinch a few more pennies on the wedding than we initially planned. (Sidenote: Charlie’s now able to stand up without screaming in pain! You can tell she notices, from the happy expression on her face every time she stands up. It warms my little heart.)
The reason I’m having a tough time deciding if we should spend the dough on letterpress invites is because they’re so darn beautiful. I think they would look so beautiful framed and on our walls after the fact.
Of course, 99% of them will go to our guests, only one will stay behind for framing on our walls.
I loved this beautifully-designed letterpress invite created by Ladyfingers Letterpress, a company with a style that speaks to me, as well as a great social conscience.
However, I just don’t know if the expense is worth it. With the wedding only 3 months away, we need to make a decision soon. What are your thoughts? To press, or not to press?
