Wedding Planning: Invitations

Aaron and I finally got around to picking out our wedding invitations. We purchased a design from this website: A Printable Press. I'm not going to tell you which one, but if you feel like guessing and you guess right, you will win a prize. The prize will be an invitation to our wedding.

Now we are waiting for our design to be sent with our wording, then we have to decide where to print them. Right now its between online printing and a local printing shop that was recommended to me by a coworker. I would much rather go through the printing shop since I know little to nothing about paper products and don't really feel like learning, but we'll see what the price difference is.

We also need to design an info card. We didn't purchase a graphic for it yet because we are hoping to just get it onto the back of the main invitation card (saving the trees!). Also, our response card is a postcard, so no extra envelopes will be harmed in the process of RSVPing.

Each invitation will also be hand addressed by Aaron or myself. Since we moved to Wisconsin, we are without the troupe of mothers, aunts, grandmas, and friends who might have helped us address our invites. At least this way you'll know exactly who addressed your invitation.

If all goes well, the invitations will be sent out the first of June and every guest will kindly reply within a week. (That way we can have adequate time to agonize over seating charts.)

  1. Sean can design your info card, he did a great job with ours!
    Also, I know the design you picked...but i was a little disappointed by the prize. We were hoping it was an iPad 2.
