When I popped our last wedding invitation in the post I felt amazing. KAPOW, we have beaten the system and successfully compiled, ordered and sent out our wedding invites with no dramas. ‘What’s all this fuss about??’ I thought. And then I got a text from my friend with the following image below. ‘Jojo is this from you? There’s nothing in it!’ Turns out I had successfully managed to send out a whole batch of invites…of empty envelopes. KAPOW – Wedding planning ONE; Jojo ZERO, again.
I was never one for arts and crafts at school. Mr DTE is full, FULL, of artistic skillz…me not so much. Therefore, I was pretty adament I didn’t want fussy fussy wedding invites where I had to sit and glue things on for hours, or tie bows onto every single invite. If you have the patience for that then you are pretty darn amazing. They can look beautiful. Mine would have not only looked dreadful but I’d have given up halfway.
There are also some amazingly crafty places out there where you can buy these lovely arty bespoke invites already made up. Mr DTE and I were pretty keen to keep our costs down for the invites though, so we looked to alternatives. You can have a look here for my invitation recommendations too, (lucky you).
Aside from the fact that I’m a donkey and I forgot to enclose my invites to some of our guests (sob), the rest of the invitation process has been pretty stress-free really. It took a while to get all the contents on there correctly, but otherwise it was a-ok, thanks to Mr DTE’s crafty skillz. I guess I just think it’s only as complicated as you want it to be. Just don’t forget to enclose your actual invites, that would just be RIDICULOUSLY STUPID.
Happy Sunday eve, bridelings! Hope you had bitchin’ weekends. Week ahead: LET’S DO THIS x
