      i confess that i've let myself get too obsessed with and upset over our invitations. i'm a graphic designer, so i feel like they have to be totally amazing. everyone will expect them to be. problem is, they are NOT. i designed them specifically for this digital output that our print guy does that is super cheap ... he said he could do multiple colors ... well, long story short, he couldn't match my colors using that process AT ALL (like not even close), so now i struggled printing stuff out myself at work after hours (every day for about 2 weeks now!). it was seriously like every single sheet of cardstock got jammed and had to be resent to print, or it would come out streaky or splotchy, and the two-sided stuff isn't lined up, so now when it's trimmed it's going to be all crooked ... AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!! i've been in tears nearly every day trying to get these done. i'm sure *some* of it is just me being super picky but they are just a NIGHTMARE. i confess that i wish i had just bought a martha stewart kit, printed our info down the center, and was done with it. they would have been beautiful, and more importantly, they would have been FINISHED!

      sorry, that was way longer a rant than i expected!

        I'm so sorry, that stinks for you and must be really frustrated. I'm sure your guests will love the invites. Just send the crooked ones to FIs side. :)

This man is happily married now with three kids and we talk on myspace sometimes and he knows that I am engaged etc no harm although I have never told my FI because they dont talk anymore since they havent worked together in over ten years I acknowledged I knew the guy!
          Do I need to tell him ??The Best Man says no that hes too jealous and it would bother him if the tables were turned and it was his wife! HELP
          Ok ladies just wanted to let you know I told him all is well :)
          He said he kinda suspected it by the way I reacted when I said I knew him from the picture but he didnt want to accuse me yada yada! I got a pretty good guy we just agreed that we shouldnt invite him to the wedding LOL!
          Thanks for all your advice

                  hee hee hee...i did that too! My invites were DIY's so the once where the monogram wasn't quite centered etc., etc., i sent those to people that I am not too close to and/or knew would not be making the trip!

                      I confess I think I now have a little girl-crush on my date twin (she thinks I'm funny)!

                      We actually sent out invites to one group of people that are invited to Cancun and then a totally different, wicked cheap invite to the people only invited to our AHR.

                      I do have another confession ~ I've known my FI pretty much forever and when we were in high school I dated a couple of his friends. Now two of those friends are coming to our wedding with their wives, one's even a groomsmen. I'm not sure how I feel about it but since my FI knows and doesn't care it's cool but still a little funny to have someone I "KNOW" (ah-hem) as a GM.
