Maddie's dedication is coming in December and I'm trying to find a nice blank invitation so that I can just print them up and don't have the pay out the nose for premade invitations. So, I found this website and saw some nice invitations that I think are mostly meant for weddings, but the flowers
on them are super pretty. Maddie's birth flower
so I've been kind of focusing on the invitations with roses
around the edges. This link
will take you to the folded floral invitations. If you scroll down maybe 2/3 of the way on the right you'll see product number 84068 (colored rose
border). I really really like it. The picture shows it with the matching informals (which I wouldn't get). The one thing that confuses me is that the description says that it is shown folded and the folded size is just over 5x7. I don't understand why it needs folded....is it just some huge piece of heavy paper that needs to be folded to make the 5x7? Wouldn't that be bulky and weird??? They have a similar invitation with roses
on it, but the roses
aren't slightly colored and that is what I really really want. I did order a sample to see just what the thing looks like, but i'm just soooooo confused about why it needs to be folded and such. Anyone have an idea? I'm sure someone here has had more experience at this stuff than me.
Also, can anyone give me some ideas for the wording of the invitation? Our church does baby dedication instead of baptism or christening....but it's still an important thing, ya know? I've looked around on the internet a little for some nice wordings, but I haven't seen any that I really like.....also, I'm looking for a nice verse that might go on the invitation somewhere......or maybe on the inside envelope (thought that might be a nice touch). Anyone know a nice one off the top of their head?
