The wedding invitation should reflect your own life style and taste. Pick an invitation that suits your wedding theme or color . There are many pre made invitations that you could select as a starter. We like Timeless Treasure Trunk's printable wedding invitations.

Card stock white

Ribbon

1. Let's print the invitation

We choose the Pink Rose Wedding Invitation kit from Timeless Treasure Trunk . We edited the invitation as instructed and printed it on a plain white light weight card stock.

2. We added a background card stock cut 1/4 inch bigger than the printed invitation. We used a double sided tape to stick the top invitation to the background card stock.

3. We added a top layer of velum . Cut the velum the same size as your original invitation, leaving the background color showing. Do not tape the velum layer down . We will do the attachment in the next step.

3. We took a small hole punch and punched two holes through all layers and then threaded a ribbon through the holes and tied a bow. Our finished 3 layered invitation.

No ceremony is complete without the kiss. In fact, there was a time when an engagement would be null and void without one. Dating back from early Roman times, the kiss represented a legal bond that sealed all contracts.

The veil was eastern, in origin and was introduced into Europe by returning crusaders. Eastern women wore it to ward off the 'Evil Eye'. It was not taken off until after the wedding ceremony and a sign to the groom that his bride was pure. Purity has continued to be associated with veils.

Throwing Rice originated in the Orient where having rice means having a full pantry. So the newlywed couple was showered with rice, grains or nuts to wish them abundance and good luck in their new life together.
