Wedding Invitations

My wedding invitations are taking over my life a little bit. Why? Because my name is World's-Worst-Procrastinator. They need to be in the mail this Saturday. I didn't bother to order any of the parts and pieces until last week. Someone told me a while ago, "Don't try to make your own invitations, it will take alot of time, and will stress you out." Why didn't I listen to them? It takes a long time to design, print, assemble and address 175 invitations.

I should stop being Negative Nancy.

The invitations are turning out beautifully, thanks to the wonderful graphic design talent of my friend, Kate. She is spending hour upon hour with me, making sure they look good and designerly. I thought about giving you photos of the process of assembling them, but that would be boring. Seriously, who wants to see shots of the 14 rolls of double sided tape I've gone through already? I pinky promise that I'll show you pictures when I'm done.

And because Molly says a post is boring without photos, I'll leave you with a funny photo of my hubby-to-be dancing at a friend's wedding a few weeks ago. He is so funny and cute sometimes I just can't stand it :) This one is called "OW! I'M TOO HOT TO HANDLE ON THE DANCEFLOOR"

go justin go justin go! haha I'm with molly, the more photos the better! I know doing your own invitations is stressful, but it's so worth it in the end to have your personal touch on every single one of them!!

So glad to hear everything is coming together well! Invitations can definitely be stressful. To deal with it, my mom had an invitation making party with a bunch of her girlfriends. I made all the pieces and they assembled them!

Justin looks like so much fun! Sometime when Bill and I make it back to Greensboro, I'd love to hang out with y'all.

Ha! I do say that, don't I? But it's true!!! If you hadn't, we never would have see Justin's flippin' sweet dance moves! And really, the truth is that I'm afraid if I don't put pictures, people will find me too boring to just read, and won't come back and visit!

Assembling your own invitations?! Oh girl--you are brave! I'm sure seeing as how there are still MONTHS involved here, a day or two late on the invitations won't be too bad. Anyone who reads your blog kinda knows the date anyway :)....
