Free Bachelorette Party Invitations

We’ve created some free bachelorette party invitation templates for the bad-ass chicks out there that are getting married. You know who you are. You can spot these mommas at roller derby on a Friday night hanging with all the other rock stars.  They’ve inspired us to put together a party invitation that plays to their less-delicate sensibilities. We did a little research and found that for a that last night of craziness, the only invites out there are flowery and nice and sweet. Not anymore just download the templates below, print them, folde ‘em, and send ‘em out.

What made you decide to design wedding invitations?
I have been designing for clothing & graphics for over 6 years now, and after I worked on my own wedding designs and invitations, I fell in love with the romance of wedding design.  I love being able to capture the feeling of a wedding and create mini pieces of art to go with their special day.
What are the most popular designs from your collection?
Definitely the Hepburn and the Novak are my 2 most popular suites so far.
Do most people order custom designs or from your wedding collection?
It’s actually pretty split down the middle.  I try and have a variety of designs to offer my  clients, and that covers a lot of people, and then I have those who want something completely out of the box, which I love!
What FireFly package would you pick for your bachelorette party?
Definitely Bliss! I love the idea of a little pampering, a great bottle of wine and great food with my best girlfriends!
Name 3 famous people you’d invite on your bachelorette party?
Lucille Ball, because she’s hilarious, would be so entertaining and I have loved her since I was a little girl, Patricia Fields, so she could style us for the party and get us some amazing couture, and lastly, Marilyn Monroe, because I think she would be a blast to party with!
What’s your most outrageous wedding or bachelorette party memory?
Oh, fun! I would have to say my most outrageous bach party memory would have to be cramming 6 lovely ladies in a teenie tiny cab in LA trying to find somewhere to eat at 3am after a nite of dancing! =)
And wedding, that would have to be after my brother-in-law read the lyrics of “All My Love” he yells out “By LED ZEPPELIN!” (and does the rock and roll hand symbol! Classic moment!
Which wedding are you: Beach, Mountain, Forest, or Countryside?
Beach! My own wedding was on the beach and we loved it!
If you could give one piece of wedding advice to a couple, what would that be………..?
Always be honest with your partner, even if it’s hard to say and always be supportive of your partne
