This nautical wedding invitation has a very polished look to it and when you follow the simple steps below you’ll see how easy it is to put together yourself. There are a few steps involved so it’s going to take you some time to put all your mailings together, but I think the end result is worth the effort. Plus you get to save a ton of cash by doing this yourself, without compromising on style.

The information text is in Perpetua Titling, which will already be loaded on your Mac or PC. Feel free to use any fonts of your choosing though.

Print your customized templates on the paper of your choice.


Cut out each piece using your paper trimmer or scissors. You will end up with the invitation, RSVP, four flags, and the blue pocket.

TIP: A paper cutter will produce straighter cuts and will be faster as you can cut more than one sheet at once, but regular old scissors will also do the trick.

Score the pocket along the dotted lines using a scoring tool or the back of your X-acto knife. Be careful not to accidentally cut through!

Using a push pin and a piece of cardboard as your work surface, punch holes in the flags on the marked dots.? Do the same with the blue pocket. These holes will be used to thread the bunting.

Now the fun begins. Thread your embroidery needled with the cotton twine and stitch the flags in L-O-V-E order.

Stitch the flags to the pocket using your push pin holes as a guide. Tie off the twine toward the front of the invitation using a double square knot, and trim the twine tails.

Fold the pocket flaps back along the score lines, run double sided tape down each flap, and fold the pocket over, pushing down firmly to secure the pocket in place.

Optional step: If you have a corner rounder, round the corners of the invitation.

Insert the invitation and RSVP into the pocket and your nautical wedding invitation set is ready for mailing!! Your guests will be sure to love it!

Consistently throughout our planning process, I tried to scour Craigslist on a regular basis. For the most part this didn't work out for me too well, because I tend to exhaustively research to feel that I've found the “best deal.” By that time, typically the item listed is already gone. I did luck out in one VERY budget-savvy way… Our cupcake stand!

Most wouldn’t think of wine country for a baby moon, but after spending 5 days there last week, I have to say, it was simply perfection! You may recall that we visited Napa and Sonoma?less than two years ago, which is partially why I chose it. Chris really didn’t want to leave the country and as a fair complected redhead, sit on a beach. Knowing it was our last getaway without children for a while, I wanted to go somewhere that we wouldn’t take the kids. Another must? Romantic. Wine country is nothing but! Picturesque views, lush accommodations, a plethora of spas and great dining make it the perfect destination.We started our trip with a couple of stops in Santa Rosa on our way to the charming city of Calistoga where we were staying. Our cottage at Cottage Grove exceeded our expectations. I was hoping for cute and quaint, but we got so much more! The photos just don’t do it justice. We were greeted with fresh fruit, an array of cheeses, crackers and wine {and water} upon our arrival in our cottage. On the front porch and at our fireplace was everything we needed to start a fire. A perfect beginning to a relaxing baby moon.
