making progress.

well, i officially have my wedding invitations ordered. originally i had this huge idea of finding cute card stock and printing my own. well i found card stock at hobby lobby that was plain white, square, with an embossed design at the top right corner. i promise, super cute. so i was looking online for a design, and while it seemed like i was coming to a dead end with finding something, i was also looking into printing costs. one of my bridesmaids offered to create a design, and i got super excited for that, only to put off finding a place to print.  last week, i realized that maybe i should get those invitations done, since the wedding is less than 3 months away and there are going to be a lot of out of town guests.  if i have not completely bored you by now, to make a long story short, i starting calling places and asking for printing prices and finally found one that was, yes, more on the expensive side because the invites were a square shape but nonetheless my cheapest option. after work, i had decided just to stop by the post office to grab stamps and ask about pricing and the lady told me that my invites will start at 66 cents each, because they are square. no. no. no. i returned that cute white, trouble making square card stock back to hobby lobby that night. i searched online like crazy that night to find something that i liked and that fit in my budget. and that wasn't square. here are some really cute invites i found along the way, but were way out of my price range:

after searching i finally found one that i thought was super cute and it was in my price range. i got to change it up a bit, and edit the wording myself which helped with getting the invites ordered and arriving at a quicker pace. is it bad that i am nervous that something will be wrong with them? i can't wait to see them and mail them out to our loved ones! i hope everyone is having a great week so far, i have been pretty busy with work/extra curricular activities as of late but i'm trying my best to keep up with blogging! have a great tuesday :)
