On the invite, we have obviously got the venue address with postcode...... should we put a mini map detailing how to get there? Is that what you mean kris?

Our exact wording for that section is:

Finding Us:
The Holiday Inn, Armada Way, Plymouth, PL1 2HJ
Parking:
There is limited parking available for hotel guests in the hotel car park. However there is plenty of pay & display parking in the surrounding streets.
Accomodation:
If you wish to extend the celebrations then rooms are available at a discounted rate within the Holiday Inn. These rooms are priced at £69 per room for Bed & Breakfast (based on 2 adults sharing). To book please call 0871 423 4896 and mention you are a guest at our wedding. However, if you prefer, there are a large selection of other hotels and B&Bs in the local area.

ooh, exciting! can't help as I haven't got that far yet but upload an image for us?

(choose the host image button on your post and choose a file from your computer - I think that should be all you need to do)

Yup, we have definately been here before......but thank you sooo much.

So what do you ladies think? I need to perfect my bow tying, but i'm pretty please with what we have created. And we had a quote of £330 for 90 of these (including 25% mate's rate discount!), so with that in mind I'm very happy.

Ah thanks Zeps.....

I cant claim full credit....... H2B designed them. Work bought all the card (& envelopes) and have done all the printing. H2B folded them (because i was breaking them!!!) but I was in charge of double sided sticky tape and ribbon! And putting them in the envelopes!!!!! We've got RSVP postcards to put in the pocket thingy as well, all with the matching design. The full cost has come in around £8 for 90 invites!

They were really easy to make.....if anyone wants the template they are more than welcome to have it.

2 weeks to go and they will be posted.....then we wait. I am v excited.

How did you print the card outer hun? This is the bit I'm struggling with!!

Where did you buy all the parts, currently looking at possibly suppliers!

We printed on both sides. OH made the template so you just clicked the '2-sided' button and it did it for you. Knowing I am IT illiterate, does that make sense????

If you want i can supply all your envelopes???? work bought them, minimum quantity was 1,000.... i need 90!

The card is actually paper, but it's a high gram quality (i really am useless!), ribbon and double sided tape eBay!

When you say envelope do you mean pocket fold?

What gram is the paper for the outer?

Although mine are sorted I'm thinking for future as hoping to do a couple of friends soon. Would love to make invites for a living!

The invitation itself is classed a pocketfold, and we've got RSVP cards to place in the pocket bit (where it says Alison & Samuel). I mean envelopes to post the invites in!!!

I have sent you mail with the invitation template on.

I will go and check the paper grams......
