invitation inspiration.

Happy Friday!  My plan for the weekend is to have a little crafting party with my lovely bridesmaid Dana.  She is also getting married this fall, and we both need to figure out what we're doing for our invitations!  We figured doing it together would be a little more fun (especially if wine is involved), and would force us to sit down and actually design them!  Procrastination has been our specialty when it comes to our invites.  

Here is a sneak peek at our invite inspiration!

Dana's color scheme is gray and ivory, with sage green accents.  She is leaning towards more modern invites, possibly using some sort of circle elements in the design.  I am loving this invitation from A Windy City Wedding (her sister designed them, isn't she sweet?).
For my own invites, I'd like to start with asimple design similar to this one from Papyrus, and add in some of the flourish elements from our save-the-dates for a little extra flair.

Should be a fun weekend!  I don't know about you, but I love having another bride to do wedding project with!  Do you feel the same?

I really like the inspiration for both, though the one for yours is more my style.
I have one engaged friend, and I wish she lived closer so we could do more together! a friend has offered to help me design the save the dates though, so that's great!
