Wedding Wednesday – Escort Cards, Table Numbers, and Donation Cards

Hello again!  This Wedding Wednesday post has been a long time coming; I started it before we moved to the beach for the summer and just finished it last week.  At least it’s a 3-in-1 post!  This one is all about the reception.  It starts with a simple, elegant escort card to let your guests know at which table they’ll be sitting, includes a table number so your guests know which table is which, and finishes with a donation card at each place setting.  Take a look:

Escort Card

escort card


This simple escort card features a tent-fold design, gold vellum border, and embossed design.  It measures 2 x 2.75″ and is easy to customize using your wedding colors or different fonts, and could be turned into a place card with no trouble at all.

Table Number

The table number is also a tent-fold design that measures 4.24 x 5.5″.  The gold corner flourishes and the table number are embossed.  Change the color of the paper, flourishes, and number to personalize it and match it to the rest of your decor.

Donation Card

Donation cards are one of my favorite new-ish trends.  Instead of giving favors, the couple makes a charitable donation in their guests’ honor.  This card measures 2.5 x 5.5″ and features paper layering to coordinate with the rest of the decor, and the same embossed design as the escort card.

Thank you guys for stopping by!  Please feel free to contact me with any questions or if you’re interested in placing an order.  As always, I appreciate all your help with spreading the word via Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and word-of-mouth.  It means the world to me!

Wedding Wednesday – Recycled Paper Wedding Program

Happy Wednesday, everyone!  I’m very excited to share another new design with you today!  Since my “Natural Invitations” design on recycled paper has proven to be one of my most popular, and because I’m a HUGE fan of continuity across a line of stationary, I decided to create a program to match the Natural Invites.  Have a look and let me know what you think:

The finished product measures 7″ x 4.25″ and features distressed edges, embossed floral image, twine bow, and a “love” watermark.  Have a look at the inside:

The first page has space for your wedding party, as well as a plaque with your names and ceremony information

The second page has plenty of space for all the details of the ceremony

As usual, this design is easy to customize and great for brides on a budget – not to mention the 100% recycled paper and natural hemp cord are environmentally friendly!  If you’re interested in placing an order for this program or any of my other designs, feel free to contact me through this blog or email me at  If you know someone who might like this design, please share it with them!  And even if you don’t know anyone personally, please go ahead and share this post on your facebook, twitter, and pinterest pages using the buttons below.  I appreciate your support more than I can express!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a beautiful day!

Wedding Wednesday- Lacy Invitation

Hey everybody!  It’s Wednesday, and you know what that means!  Wedding Wednesday, featuring invitations, stationary, and other fun wedding stuff for brides on a budget!  I have to tell you, this is my favorite blog post-day of the week.  I have a passion for all things wedding-related that I found while planning my own (low-budget) wedding last year, and to get to share it with you just thrills me down to my little toes!  Every week (ok, every day, I think about it every day) it’s my hope that I’ll be able to help a bride make her big day just a little more special.  A big shout-out to everyone who has helped so far by spreading the word!  Thank you for helping me get my dream off the ground 🙂

Ok, ok, enough with the mushy stuff 🙂  I have a new invitation design to show you! Take a look:

Lace Invite 1


It features a stamped and heat embossed lace border image, satin ribbon (of course!), and a lace punch border.  It looks very bold and elegant in black and white, but it’s also available on ivory or light blue cardstock, with any color stamp, border, and ribbon color you fancy.  The bow is optional, as you can see in the picture below, which features the same invitation in vertical orientation:

Lace Invite 2


Both horizontally- and vertically-oriented invitations measure 5 x 7″ and are printed on 80# linen textured cardstock.  As with all every design in my wedding collection, you are welcome to customize the font and wording of the invitation and matching RSVP card, pictured below:

Lace Invite RSVP


Most of my wedding collection can be found in my Etsy store, but I encourage you to contact me through this blog first if you’re interested in placing an order; there are some extra factors I have to take into account on Etsy, so prices in my shop are generally higher than ordering directly through me.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  If you saw something you like, feel free to contact me and share this post with your friends!  Just above the comments section you’ll find buttons to share on facebook, twitter, and pinterest.  I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it!

Have a great day!

Wedding Wednesday- Another Program

Happy Wednesday, everybody!  Today on Wedding Wednesday I have another design for a program.  It’s clean, simple, and lovely. Take a look:

Tall Program front

This program is great for brides on a budget, coming in at $1.15 per program.  It’s easy to customize to match your wedding colors or theme, just change the paper or ribbon color, add a stamp, and choose a quote or Bible verse that means something to you and your bride or groom.  There’s plenty of space on the inside for all the details:

And, of course, you can also customize the fonts.  This particular program is blank on the back, but again there’s plenty of space to add a personal note thanking everyone for their support 🙂

If you would like to have these programs at your wedding, please feel free to contact me through the “Contact Me” page on this blog!  If you know someone who might like these programs, please share it with them.  If you don’t need these for yourself or know anyone who might, I would really appreciate it if you could share this post on your facebook, twitter, and pinterest pages to help me spread the word!  Thank you, thank you, thank you!  Without your help, my dream of providing affordable beautiful wedding stationary to brides on a budget just wouldn’t be possible.

Thanks for stopping by, have a great day!

Wedding Wednesday- Embossed Wrap Wedding Invitations

Hi everyone!  It’s Wednesday, and you know what that means… a Paper Melody’s wedding post for Brides on a Budget!  This week I have a new invitation design for you.  It’s a 5 x 7″ layered design with a dry embossed sleeve tied with a ribbon.  Take a look:

And another shot:

The sleeve is dry embossed in a beautiful floral pattern and encircled by a 5/8″ satin ribbon to match your wedding colors.  The same flourish appears on both the RSVP card and the invitation, with letterpress and a single pearl adorning the invitation.  This set is beautiful, classic, and easy to customize for your special day.  Each affordable invitation set includes :

  • 1 invitation 5×7″
  • 1 RSVP card 3 x 4.25″
  • 1 embossed sleeve with ribbon
  • 1 A7 envelope
  • 1 4-bar envelope

Please contact me through the “Contact Me” page on this blog or through Facebook if you’re interested in this invitation set!  I look forward to hearing from you and working to make your special day even more perfect.  If you like what you’ve seen but aren’t in the market for wedding invitations, please share this with your friends.  And remember!  These invitations don’t have to be strictly wedding invitations.  They would also make beautiful bridal shower, baby shower, or even birthday invitations!  The possibilities are endless 🙂

Thank you for stopping by and for all your support!  It means so much to me!
