This wedding invitation would be lovely for a formal black tie event! I'm picturing a classy, New Years Eve wedding.

This invitation suite includes (measurements in inches):
• 5x7 pocket wedding invitation with band wrap on smaller pocket
• 3.5x5 RSVP card
• 3.5x5 RSVP envelope with your address printed
• 5x7 outer envelope with your return address printed

This invitation and features your invitation, strikingly set onto a shimmery gold paper that really stands out against the black linen folder. The pocket is wrapped in a black and white patterned paper and holds your RSVP card and envelope. The fonts include a mix of classic bold fonts mixed with soft swirls and are all printed on white shimmery card stock.

NOTE - the gold paper that is used in this invitation has recently been discontinued. It will be replaced by Antique Gold - a slightly darker gold.

Other versions of the invitation are also available.

Blush and Champagne Flat -

The beauty of Etsy is that no two orders are ever the same. You work one-on-one with either Laura or Sara to develop your custom design. Here are ways you can customize your design!

1. Paper. Don't let the listing picture limit your creativity! We have more than 250 paper colors to choose from in matte, shimmery and patterns. If you need help picking colors we are happy to send you small swatches of the colors you are interested in. Please note that not all papers are created equal and your overall cost may go up or down depending on your selection. You can check out the colors available in the listing picture (Click Zoom to enlarge the photo).

2. Additional Pieces. We can add in extra pieces that you need, take away the ones you don't and change the shape, pocket style, and papers to fit not only your wedding but your budget as well. Any flat invitation can be turned into a pocket, any pocket can be turned flat, we can make it truly you. Need some ideas? Check out the samples of custom designs on our Facebook page!

3. Coordinating Pieces. Use your invitation and additional pieces to set the tone for your big day and create consistency. This set currently has a few coordinating pieces designed to match. We would be happy to design others as you need them. Here are examples of our coordinating pieces.

Click the Request Custom Order link below the listing picture. In your message let us know what invitation you are interested in, how many you need, when you need them by, and any changes from the listing picture that you might be interested in such as a change to the paper color, size, shape, or invitation style (pocket or flat).

We will get back to you as soon as we can with information on pricing. Any changes you make to the papers, shape, or size may change your overall cost. If you are new to Etsy, keep an eye out from an email from Etsy that says "Etsy Conversation from LamaWorks" or check your inbox here frequently.
Though each order is customized the order process is fairly standard. Here is how the process typically flows.

1. What colors will it be? We will work together to identify what paper works best for your order and your budget.

2. More or less? Is an additional card needed to provide guests with more information? Do you not need a card that comes with the original set? We will identify the pieces you need to complete your set.

3. You're invited! Identify the number of invitations you will need.

4. Shall we assemble or would you like to? Most invitations have the option for DIY - we design, print and cut each piece. You tape them together. While we don't supply the tape we will happily recommend brands. We will also include one fully assembled set so you can see the final product as well as a few extras of each piece in case of mistakes. This option will reduce the price per invitation and many brides find it's a way they can get upgrade other areas such as paper or additional cards while they are still able to stay within their budget. This set is $6.20 as a DIY kit.

5. Address the guest. Guest address printing is available on all light colored envelopes for an additional $0.25 per envelope. I don't have the ability to print on dark paper. If you would like for us to print your guest addresses we will ask you to complete our guest address template and email it to us. All addresses must be typed as you would like them to be written on the envelopes which means you need to include titles (Mr., Mrs., Dr.), "and guest" must be written out and states must be abbreviated as appropriate. We will send you a PDF proof to review before we print. We highly recommend you look through every page to make sure you have all of the addresses appropriately formatted.

6. Deposit time. Once the details of your order are confirmed we will determine a final cost for your invitation set. At that point we request a 50% deposit. Once the deposit is paid, your paper will be ordered and we begin to work on your design.

7. We design the invitation of your dreams! While we wait for your paper to arrive we ask that you send us wording for your invitation, RSVP card and any other additional card you may have in your set. We will also need your return address for the envelopes. During this process we will send you electronic versions of your invitation suite for your review and approval.

8. A sample your way comes. We will print a sample of your invitation set and mail it to you. We strongly urge all our customers to allow us to send a printed sample before we print the entire order. If time doesn't allow for a mailed sample we will have you approve the draft online.

9. Green light to print. Once you've reviewed and approved the final draft we will print your order.

10. Final touches and out the door. We will assemble your set (unless it's DIY), package it safely and post your final amount due plus shipping. Once that's been paid your order is sent to you. When your final order is shipped we do not place the inserts into the pocket envelopes - that will be left for you to finish.
A budget is really important when you plan a wedding, so if you love an invitation, but it's more than you can spend let us know. Tell us what your budget is, what is on your 'must have' list and we will do our best to rework any design to fit what you want. There are some limitations but we promise to do our very best!

We have found that a lot of our brides are crafty enough for a little DIY work, but are intimidated by the process of designing a full invitation. We can help! Perhaps the easiest way to save a bit on our invitations is to purchase them as a DIY kit. We do all of the printing and cutting, but leave it for you to assemble. We don't provide the tape, but do have recommended brands and methods that we are happy to share with you. A fully assembled version is always included in your order to show you where each of the pieces goes. This invitation is available as a DIY kit for $6.20

1. Paper Selection
2. Additional Pieces
3. Guest Address Printing on the outer envelope
4. Map Design (flat $35 fee)
5. Custom Design (see the Shipping & Policies tab for more information)
6. Rush Order Charge (see the Shipping & Policies tab for more information)
7. Small Orders (see the Shipping & Policies tab for more information)

Please contact us ASAP if you would like to place an order. Our schedule fills up and we do turn down orders during peak invitation season (January - May). Most orders take around 4 weeks to complete. Work time will not be reserved until a deposit has been paid. Please keep an eye on the shop announcement page for any upcoming vacations.
