I mentioned in my last post that I picked up my beautiful invitations!
I'm going to start by saying picking out the invitations was honestly harder for me than picking out my DRESS!! There are just SO many options out there, and so many stores had the same ones and nothing was really clicking. I wanted something classic but not boring, and not what everyone else seems to be doing right now. There are so many trends out there with wedding ideas and I am trying my best to stick out just a little.
The moment I turned the page and saw these I knew immediately that's what I wanted. They are soft and beautiful, but at the same time elegantly simple. It's hard to convey the quality of the paper over the computer screen, but its all thick, soft, ivory paper.
Obviously I had to block out the pertinent information...I'll share my Venue and all that good stuff AFTER the wedding :)
My mom and I were both really happy when the lady said the proper etiquette is to write Mrs Richard (last name)...instead of my mom's first name, Mary. So it's like having my dad on the card too :)
I'm really not liking what the yellow "white out" is doing to these babies!
all the cards have that rough/natural edge
I was famished after dance class last night...so I needed food fast!
This was a Joseph's Organic whole grain tortilla with:
- Sabra's Roasted Pine Nut Hummus
- a couple shakes of hot sauce
- baby spinach
- red/yellow/green bell pepper slices
- ribbons of carrot
- sliced tomato
- red onion
So I sent my precious envelopes off to Cali to be written out! Now I have a real deadline to finalize the guest list...Friday! Ahhhh! Why is it so hard?!
