invitations if postage didn't matter

Our wedding will be held at my future in-laws rural home. They have a beautiful property and their home was built by my future father-in-law. The ceremony will take place in a paddock closest to the house and the reception in the garden (weather permitting). I had many different ideas as to how the invitations would look including a simple white card with a tree and our names. However I quickly decided that this does not look as effective when letterpress is not used and as our budget couldn't stretch quite that far I had to re-think my idea. Enter the book. I am a great lover of reading particularly of classics and after seeing the below paper creations couldn't resist going down the paper path.

 and when you search book inspired invites you cannot go past the invitations blogger Jessica Claire had commissioned for her wedding found here

as the daughter of a post master and presently a very poor uni student, i don't think i can stomach the epic amount of postage she would have paid to send them all out but gosh are they pretty!
