Save the date

So much has changed about weddings in the 22+ years since I walked down the aisle and vowed to be a wife. You no longer go to a local shop and swoon over books and books of wedding invitations, seeing the actual invitation color, and feeling the paper weight. So many brides choose to print their own invitations.

I think we are going to pass on that option with my daughter's wedding. I have ventured and sent handmade Christmas cards to the nearly 100 families on our Christmas card list. I also made her graduation invitations. Those were fun and easy, but I am not sure I am ready to tackle wedding invitations. I know we could just purchase the printable type, but that is a little more than I want to tackle.

We have ordered samples from a couple of different online companies of invitation samples. We have also examined every wedding invitation we and our friends have received the past few months. The bride has finally chosen an invitation! I am so thankful one more decision is made.

They chosen invitation also has a corresponding save the date magnet. I have finished my portion of the wedding invitation list today. (Big weight lifted off me!) The grooms mother has finished her portion as well. Now, the bride, who knows. I think she has worked on her list, at least she can quit reminding me to finish my part.

I think we will be ordering Save the Date cards in the next week or so! Yipee!
