if this invitation were a person, i would marry it: viewmaster wedding invites

Bold statement for a gal who has seen a bajillion and one invites that take her breath away. But as a child of the 80’s and someone who is obsessed with pictures, these invites are straight up my alley. Soon-to-be couples can now either purchase these radical  invites from Etsy or attempt the do-it-yourself version found on... Read more »
