Wedding Update: Invitations

Hey Guys!
I went to a Wedding Show yesterday where Charles and I got a ton of great deals on some amazing businesses in our area for our wedding. This week we will be contacting our florist, decorator, limo company and tux rental. Everything is coming together so well and I was worried that wedding planning would be overwhelming! We also decided to make our own invitations and a few other little details (i.e., wedding favors) instead of hiring someone for this. I also will be making the center pieces. I love being involved in the decorations of the wedding since I'm pretty picky as to what I want. Here are a few pictures of some things I bought yesterday. The invitations aren't printed yet, but I have an example of how simple I want the invitation to look.


  1. I love the simple, clean and chic look! When I get married, this is definitely what I am going to do as well :)

  2. Oooooh exciting! I loved planning all the little pretty things! Remember to buy extra cards/invitations in case any get messed up :) x

  3. Those are so elegant and gorgeous!

  4. My hubby and I saved a lot of money by making things ourselves, too! The favors were actually a lot of fun to make.

    We had our invitations made at Costco, believe it or not! It was so inexpensive, we couldn't pass it up! Our invites were very clean and simple, like yours. Simple = Elegant! :)

    Good luck with the rest of your planning!


  5. How exciting! It's nice that it hasn't been too overwhelming for you! I know my time will be soon.. and I feel that I'm going be SO overwhelmed!!

    I'm the same way.. I like to decorate and many times when I have pre-ordered something.. I could of done the same thing, if not better.. This totally makes me want to put together ideas for my wedding decorations! haha

  6. I love the simplicity of it, very elegant. (:
    I'm sure I'd be involved in a lot of the decorations of my wedding because I'm pretty picky too, I just hope I don't become a bridezilla!


  7. The invites look great, very classic. You're going to be a beautiful bride. Congratulations!
