    My husband and I basically eloped – well, my Mom and his parents were there and our my daughter was the maid of honor and my step-son was the best man – never had to deal with details of a wedding, because that isn’t me, but that isn’t to say I don’t enjoy reading about other weddings that people love to plan!

    The invitations are gorgeous!

      Sometimes eloping sounds like a good idea. 😉

    I absolutely love your invitations! I would love to pick your brain on wedding stuff in the near future. The thought of planning such a large event is overwhelming to say the least.

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Sure! We need to get together and get caught up. I want to hear your story. 🙂

    Love the invites! And I wish I had thought of having a invitation addressing party way back when – getting that stuff ready to go was a LOT of work! What fabulous wedding memories you’re building, Lisa 🙂

      It was a lot of fun to do it as a group.

    Wow – those are gorgeous!

    90% of your guests would never have even noticed the postmark so you made the right choice. That’s one of those niceties that brides get all crazy over that actually has very little pay off. Better off skipped.

      Yeah I didn’t think the postmark was a big deal.

    Pretty invites! That was one thing I didn’t care about. We ordered a bunch with matching RSVP cards off Vistaprint in green (our colour) and we were good to go. Because we only invited 50 people the invites took me an hour in front of the TV one night. My maid of honor lives in London (I’m in NZ), and my bridesmaid lives an hours flight away so I was completly on my own for everything wedding until a few days before.

      There is definitely something nice about a smaller party…! 🙂

    The front of your invitations is beautiful! I made my own, but mine were just print on a card with vellum covering it and held to the card with a ribbon. Fortunately there weren’t too many to make (there were only 50 people at the wedding), but it was more work than I anticipated.

    Sounds like it was a productive day with girl friends!

    The invitations are so pretty! Love the colors and theme! And such a gimmicky thing at that post office! :-/

    I remember taking in a web page which I had saved to a thumb drive to Staples to get printed when our printer died. I spent 20 minutes arguing with four different employees who at first refused to print the page because “they aren;t allowed to use the internet.” They couldn’t comprehend that you can have a web page that is not live on the internet. How do these folks think most websites are designed? *pulls hair out*

      Oh my god, that sounds frustrating!! I’m sorry!
