I have developed a small obsession with invitations and stationery. The other day of course I showed you my (our) wedding invitations. Since then I spent several hours (I mean, like 12 to 15 hours) browsing etsy, pretending I was looking for ideas for my sister Leslie for her upcoming wedding (next October, it looks like). Of course, we don’t have the same taste, so that was a completely pointless exercise, except that I love looking at invitations! I love the concept of having something printed especially for you, and I’m the sort of person who SAVES all that stuff. Seriously. If I have attended your wedding, birthday party, funeral, whatever, you can guarantee that somewhere in my house or at my mom’s house, there is a box that contains your invitation, thank you card, birthday card, place card, you name it, I’ve got it.
This means three things. One: I am already over budget on my stationery. Two: I am still planning more printed items (well, programs and place cards are required, right?? place cards in some form actually are required by our venue). Three: I realized I can send out printed invitations for the rehearsal dinner as well! In a totally different theme if I want! It took a little convincing for Chris to get on the same page, but I believe he realized pretty quickly I was a woman obsessed and it was a losing battle. I’ve found a set I LOVE, though he is not totally convinced of them. I think he’ll like them when all is said and done and they are a lovely contrast (yet of course we’ll maintain the color scheme) to our main invitation set.
We’ll see what I decide for sure. Watch this space! (Hahahaha. Like you really care!)
