Wedding Countdown: 2 Months To Go

Tuesday, October 27, 2009

I finally finished addressing and assembling wedding invitations last night and I’m sending them out today! They took forever to address, but I felt very strongly about doing them by hand (although I must admit about halfway through I was really wondering why). I’m so happy to have them finally ready to go! I still need to order monogrammed note cards for after the wedding thank yous. So far I’ve just had a time trying to find what I want! I haven’t really found a stationary store I like in town (usual shopping situation), and it’s so difficult to tell what you’re getting online. I hate not being able to feel the paper before ordering. Any suggestions?

Our wedding planner has been so amazing and there’s really not that much left to do. Right now I’m working on finishing our guestbook. I’m making a coffee table book with our engagement pictures and plenty of room for people to sign. I obviously haven’t been able to get very creative since it needs to be a kind of blank for signing, but this project has got me thinking about scrapbooking. Digital scrapbooking could be a lot of fun!

I’m also having a difficult time deciding on some of the songs. I can’t seem to get an inspiration for the cake cutting and tossing of the bouquet and garter. I’m so excited for our first dance. We are going to dance to my grandparent’s song, String of Pearls. I love it!

Here are a couple pictures from where we’re getting married:




I'm in love with the chandeliers in the ballroom! This picture doesn't really do them justice.

  1. That chandelier is amazing! I love the idea of a coffee table book for people to sign as well. Much better than a plain guest book!

  6. Wow! Your wedding location is beautiful!!!

    I too worry about ordering notes online...not knowing their weight, etc. I adore Crane notes and stationary, but they are a little pricey. Does anything you have seen online list the weight of the paper?
