Cheap and Stunning Watercolor Florals For DIY Wedding Invitations
Cause saving money on the invitations means more money for the honeymoon! (at least that’s what he said…)
Hello Lovely Lady!
Hope you are doing well today! If you are here because you are planning for your upcoming wedding then may we say a very heartfelt congratulations to you! And if you are here because you are looking for watercolor florals to make your own wedding invitations to sell then a heartfelt congratulations to you too!
Hey, life is hard enough as it is. We all deserve a congratulations once in a while just for being here!
Now the wedding invitation is extremely important especially for the bride. For the groom…well he might have suggested saving money on the invites by just sending out an email. (Sadly, we may be speaking from personal experience on this one!) ;-). Don’t worry you will get him whipped into shape in time!
Anyways, so as a compromise, you got him to agree to let you make the invitations yourself as a cost saving measure because an email is just tacky – and EHEM, you have personal standards! So, he is going to get what he wants and you are going to get what you want. Really, it’s all about getting him to think he’s getting what he wants when it’s actually really you getting what you want. Are we right ladies?
And what you want is stunning and elegant watercolor florals.
Why? The reason you need fabulous watercolor flowers is so that when people ask where you bought your wedding invitations from you will get the satisfaction of seeing the look on their face when you say, “Oh, they’re nothing fancy. I made them myself, darling”. 😉
