In Her Shoes Update: After thinking I’d have to send out the search party for the perfect Inaugural Ball shoes, I lucked out and found the winning pair in my own closet. Super saver bonus!!! The pair were worn in November at my friend Erin’s wedding in Chicago. I tried them on with the gown and we are good to go. Sound the trumpets!
As I’ve resolved to do, my wedding DIYs have become the focus of my to do list. I must be crazy because I have decided to not only design, but also print and cut my own invitation suite. I originally created them for my graphic design portfolio a couple of years ago with the intention of using them one day when I got hitched. I’ve made a few changes from the original design, but most parts have stayed intact. My current task is to review all of the information that is on the invitation, response card and reception card to make sure they are ready to print. I am hoping to knock some of the printing out this weekend to get a head start on all of the cutting that will need to be done. Right now our guest list is hovering around 365, so I better start doing some hand stretches. It’ll be a labor of love, literally.
I’ll share some shots of my invites tomorrow, but in the meantime here are a few of my favorite suites:
