Some of you might remember, but for those who have shown up since then or need a refresher, Mr. C and I really wanted something romantic and classic, without looking too traditional, read: Boring. I loved a lot of the options that Minted had, and after having such a great experience with our save the dates, and the way I raved about them, some of you probably guessed that we would find our perfect invitation there - and you would be right! So, enough chit chat - here is a little look at what the Coach wedding guests have been receiving in their mail boxes the last week! (I used the sample invitation that we had received from Minted instead of having to blur all the pretty details from our actual invite.)
I really wanted to use ribbon as a belly band of sorts, and finally decided on this thin, red ribbon to tie things together. The smaller bow still laid fairly flat inside the envelope, so I didn't have to worry about tearing or things getting too messed up in transit.
The calligraphy on the envelope is one of my favorite parts of the whole ensemble. The beautiful writing was done by Rachel Carl and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. I hate that I have to blur it out, but the return address on the back was such a fun detail too.
One of my other favorite parts was our fun little return address stamp. I also ordered this from Rachel, and I may have to get some more of these in the future because they just make putting your address on things so fun! For the sake of not having to blur, this is the sample of the style we chose from her website:

So, now you're probably all tired of looking at photos of our invitations :) But, tell me about yours! Did anyone else start getting RSVP responses back? It just makes everything seem so real!
