Here are the promised bachelorette party invites! We spent most of the night at mad46, which is the rooftop lounge at the Roosevelt Hotel located in the heart of Manhattan. Inspired by the skyline views they offered on their site, I whipped up these simple and classy bachelorette party invites.
I wanted them to reflect the mood of the evening... there were definitely no screaming girls, tiaras or penises at this bachelorette party! But there definitely was a fascinator hair piece. More on that later.
I knew it was a little risky, making invites with the NYC skyline on them and sending them to a bunch of New Yorkers (heaven forbid they say something like "she's been living in TX too long", my ego may never recover), but everyone really seemed to like them!
To create these, I purchased two 50-pack of blank envelopes and cards - one in an ivory color and one in kraft paper. I cut the cards in half and rounded the corners, then designed a simple invite on OpenOffice. The fonts were downloaded for free from da font, and I also snagged the skyline image online (although I edited a little with my photo editing software).
It was a blast hanging with my ladies, but one of the highlights that sticks out in my mind, probably the only time we got all "hayy! bachelorette partay!!!", was when they started playing a mix-up of Miley Cyrus's Party in the USA. It's embarassing, but I cannot help singing along to that song. And apparently neither could anyone else in our little group, except for my friend Tori who is pictured here shutting me up by clasping her hand firmly over my mouth.
Heather (the bride!) is in the peach dress, with the aforementioned fascinator piece that I made for her.
Tomorrow I'll post the Bridal Shower invites. xo!
