Working with your budget

One of my brides is getting married on a golf course this Spring. Rather than do anything cheesy with golf balls, tees or clubs, I went with a polka dot theme. Take a close look at a golf ball, and you'll find "polka dots" covering the ball– that's where this idea came from. Her colors are a pretty french blue with chocolate brown accents. The tables will be adorned with hydrangeas. I can't wait to see it all come together!

When we first talked, we threw around the idea of doing a pocket folder with a seal to keep it shut. The pocket would house a few inserts containing wedding information. This is the concept I shared with her:Let's Polka! Invitation

Once she realized how much this design was going to cost, she asked if there was a way to bring the price down--but keep the same look the invites had. I eliminated the use of the pocketfolder, and combined the information that was one on 3 cards into one card and made an RSVP postcard (less postage and no envelope!)

Problem solved. Now they have more money for their honeymoon. ;)
