Days to Go: 244

The wedding invitations have arrived! They look so amazing! I’m so completely chuffed with them! The lady who made the invitations is just fantastic and so professional!

I’m not going to completely reveal what they look like until I’ve sent them to the wedding guests but I’m so so happy with them!

We have ordered day invites, evening invites, RSVP’s and envelopes.

H2b is really happy with them too, he said, ‘Yay! Now we can invite people.’ That was his only reaction, that and saying the invitations we very me.

It’s so exciting finally receiving the invitations! The wedding has been in my head for so long but now it’s down on paper in purple and white!

The next step is to give Dad the invitations so he can do his cool calligraphy handwriting to write the names, and his normal fantastic handwriting to write the envelopes. (He volunteered! Honest!)

Also, today I am meeting with all my bridesmaids to take them to try on their dresses!! I remember when we went to do this with my friend when I was bridesmaid for her wedding, my wedding seemed so far away but now it’s my turn.

Eeeeeek! I’m so excited!

    It’s really interesting to see how excited you are about your invitations arriving…. Being in a similar field myself this is an especially exciting post and food for thought too. And the little peek looks lovely! C xx

    Thank you! My friend was quite excited about her invitations when they arrived too! I’m almost ready to send the invitations out, but I’ve kept them safe and flat and pristine for the last few weeks it feels strange to send them out!
