After weeks of searching hundreds of stationary websites for a wedding invitiation (and matching day-of stationary) that fit us and our wedding . . . we've given up. Given up the search to start a new project . . . we're going to do them ourselves! It's kind of exciting. With some serious help from my mom and her computer skills, we've decided to make our own invitiations! I know what you're probably thinking ... there's already so much to do, why take on another project when you can just order them online? Because nothing WOWed us! I feel so good about this decision. We can make our invites what we want them to be now ... to fit our theme ... and not have to "just go with" a pre-designed mold! If you're getting married and can't find an invitiation you love ... consider it. There are so many websites that do most of the work for you (especially address labeling the envelopes) and then leave you to do the fun stuff, the design! They even sell the software to make it all happen! Also, with the help of Etsy, I've been finding some beautiful clipart pieces that fit in with our theme! I can't wait to get started!
Speaking of our theme. Any guesses what we're going with? The entire wedding theme revolves around a gift John gave me on our first Valentine's Day together . . .
So . . . the date is set. The venue is booked. We've hired our photographer and our DJ. (Yes, of course JEFF is dj'ing! I told him we wanted him to be a GUEST, but he insisted on DJ'ing because he wants our day to go perfectly. What a sweetie!)
Still on the immediate agenda is . . . visit a local boutique to check out the bridesmaid dress I fell in love with on Pinterest, (My MOH and I are going this weekend, so i'll check back in on Monday with an update) choose a florist, bakery for the cake, and a jeweler for our rings.
I'm hoping to check some of those things off of my list at this Sunday's BRIDAL SHOW at the Scranton Cultural Center! It really is like a one-stop-shop for everything wedding . . . i've just never needed the services before! :) Getting married? Register to attend for free at 985krz.com or by clicking here! You can even win some awesome door prizes ... including $2,000 CASH. What bride-to-be couldn't use an extra $2,000? According to my calculations, that could pay for all of your stationary, postage, and ... maybe even a spa day! (You like the way I think? Throw in a spa day with the extra cash!? Oh yeah. While you're there, visit Sapphire Salon and Spa - they are the best!)
See you blinging beautiful brides to be on Sunday . . . and the let the wedding planning fun and festivities begin!
