Invite Reveal

Hello lovelies! It's a beautiful day today. I feel like doing nothing but there is so much on my to do list. Oh and thanks for the comments. I love my pink shoes too!

Last Friday night, Jason and I watched New Moon, which I loved (surprisingly). And we also randomly met up with Laura and Josh. We just saw them (Josh first, Laura came later) and found out we were watching the same movie. I love little surprises like that.

I thought I would post our wedding invitations. It is basically finished. It needs some tweaking but the main design is done. It's 62 Days on my wedding countdown. Tomorrow it will be exactly 2 months until the wedding!! Oh my! A part of me has little freak outs about this. Especially when I realised how much I still need to do. All the little details.

Anyway, here's the invite draft.....
This is the main invite. That space underneath is for a tiny envelope. I'm making those myself. It's taking a long time.

The tiny envelopes will have these tiny cards inside. This is the back with the monogram Laura created for us.

These are the little details on the cards. Contact details, a dress code, a little wedding date calender and a diet card (which probably won't work anymore because we aren't having RSVP cards for people to send back anymore).

You can click on the pictures to see it a little clearer and larger. We are now in the process of just confirming details and finding a printing place.

Also we decided not to have the wax seal which was meant to be for the tiny envelope. We might make our own sticker seals instead.

What do you all think? This is still the draft. There are a few things we are going to change. But this is the main design. Ignore the gray/silver border. That part is getting chopped off.

Have a lovely week!
