When my husband and I got engaged in the summer of 2006, we knew that an engagement party was on the horizon for us - hosted by my mother-in-law and her hubby. Little did we know at the time, that plan was to host the party in Ocean City, NJ at a beach house we were all staying at for a week that summer.
For the invitations, I had seen something along the lines of these years ago and thought it would be so much fun to recreate them for the party.
Here's a really simple step-by-step tutorial to recreate them:
- A10 size cellophane envelopes
- Invitation (I printed these at work - they are two sided; one side included the details and
rsvp info, the other had the address on it)
3. Seal up bags and presto! Send and enjoy!
Just a few tips:
The way I designed the invitation, it didn't require anyone to open them in order to view the information, but people nonetheless decided they were supposed to be opened and I got a few phone calls how the sand had gone all "over the car". I got the a-okay from the post office before I stamped them (just to make sure it was okay with them to send the sand in the mail like that) - and they smiled and gladly accepted them. I'd recommend having them hand postmarked to avoid any problems too!
