We're Gettin' There!

I received a proof of the wedding invitations on Friday! There were a few things to fix (including one font error on my part -- of course!), but we should be good to go this week. Here's a sneak peek:



You can't tell it from the photo, but the paper is PERFECT. It makes all the difference. The design definitely looks more autumnal now. I had been worried about it looking springy. And the envelopes are going to be spectacular with these. It's the best incidental design I've ever come up with. I know that I should be ramped about these being finished, but I feel like a mom with post partum depression. I know that they should blow my socks off, but they don't. It's just like the Save the Dates. Sending them out was very anti-climatic too.

The address labels are off to Kinko's today! A million and a half thanks go to Kate for telling me to convert the Illustrator files to PDF files and then merge the PDFs into one file. I had been trying to figure out how to get 25 files to Kinko's without it costing me and arm and leg in file opening fees or an evening there fighting with their printers myself!

I can tell the paper is creamy and luxe and delicious. Be happy it's done. Your little sneak peak shows they are gorgeous...

I had post partum when I was done with mine too. On the one hand, I was so happy they were done, and I didn't to look at them again. But on the other hand, I had a hard time sending them off and letting go of them!

The good news is, I got a lot of compliments on them...even from people who didn't know I made them. That made me feel like it was worth it.

That reminds me that I still haven't posted about my invites...

Anytime luv! I'm off to print myself a proof at Kinko's today!! AHHH!!!! I'm so freaked out it will look terrible or too big or too small or misaligned - yeah, I could go on. But I won't.

How exciting to be nearly there! I can't wait to get to the point of sending out invitations... SO exciting!
