On a Wedding Invite High

This one is going to be a quick one.  I haven't posted much because A:  I'm busy and tired and B:  I'm lazy and have nothing to talk about.  And yes, I can be both of those things at the same time.  Wedding planning has been going along great minus a few mini freakouts and one color change which was reversed the next day. Last night I ordered our wedding invitations and RSVP cards and was so impressed with the service we received, I had to post a quick blog about it.

I ran across the site Wedding Paper Divas while doing research for my wedding planner certification and ordered a couple of samples to put on my inspiration boards.  I had really quick service from them the first time so I decided to check them out for my own wedding, (seriously, that is still really weird to say...this rock on my hand freaks me out every time I look at it).  Mike and I like to make snap decisions and go with our gut so after only a couple of times perusing the site, we decided on a simple and modern invite.  I finally bit the bullet last night after hemming and hawing over spending money on something and ordered them.  Not only did they give me free shipping because I left my order in my shopping cart so long they got nervous that I had died, (coincidentally, I have done this on more than one web site and never do it on purpose, but it always ends up getting me free shipping!), but I also had forgotten to put in a discount code to get 10% off so when I e-mailed them about it, they refunded me the eleven bucks I would have saved.  I just ordered them last night and I already got a proof today and my estimated shipping date is next week.  Basically, they ROCK.

I went back and forth about showing you guys my invites, but here is the one we've chosen so if you don't want the surprise ruined, (the four of you I'm actually inviting to my tiny, weird, little wedding), then don't scroll down!

The invites!  We love the soft yellow, the simplicity of the invitation and the cute font.  I'm a sucker for a simple/modern layout no matter what it's for!

And the RSVP cards!  I love the wording and design.  The only thing I didn't love about these cards is how little about the food you can fit on there because our food all has really long descriptions and I love how fancy our food sounds so I was bummed out that all I ended up fitting on there was new york steak, chicken, and halibut, but it would have been that way with most any RSVP cards, they are usually this size.

So we love them and I'm so excited how insanely ahead of the game we are so far with the wedding.  I'm sure I'll be eating those words come the first of next year, but I'm enjoying my cheap wedding invitation high right now!


  1. I like Artistic Orchids, they look really pretty with the yellow. I'm so excited for you guys and the invites and the RSVP's look fantastic! If you need any help let me know, even if it's just asking advice on stuff. =D
