Pretty things

I received my invitations in the mail last week! I wish I could show them to you all... I just don't want to ruin the surprise-some of my guests read my blog! But I will tell you they are lovely! They came out perfect. I took the cheap route and ordered them through The American Wedding. If you want to see them-shoot me an email and I'll send you the link! It took me a while to figure out which ones I wanted. There were so many-and I'm the worlds worst indecisive person I know. There were some gorgeous ones I had my eye on from different designer websites-but my Dad is footing the bill on 98% of our wedding, so I tried to cut costs when I could. I am incredibly happy with my invitations and wouldn't change them for the world. (My Dad likes them too!)

What are you doing for invitations? Are you trying to cut costs? Do you like pre-made invitations?

Since I've hit the 3 1/3 month mark-I've gotten so excited! I feel like our wedding is just around the corner. There is talk of showers, bachelorette parties, fittings, etc. Yet I still have so much to do. I got caught up in the Holidays-and haven't done much planning. But fortunately I'm not stressed at all. Which is a surprise for me. I'm still super laid back. However, starting February I have to get my booty in gear!

Here is my current To-Do list:

Plan honeymoon ASAP
Order Mike's wedding band
Find/purchase wedding shoes
Decide on the color shoes for my girls
Wedding day lingerie
Finish all my DIY projects
Look into Ceremony programs
Finish DJ list (I keep changing it!)
Choose readings/ceremony music
Design map insert for invitations

I'm sure I'm missing some important things...but I will update as I think of them!

I assume that once you've sent them out you'll post them on the blog? If so, then I'll just wait until then!
That's so exciting - it is soon!

What a great blog! It will be so much fun for you to look back on all that you have documented. Let me know if I can help with your wedding programs!
