I am having a hard time deciding on my invitations. I have been, for about three months now, tossing around ideas and different patterns and have basically narrowed it down to a pocket fold.

 

However, when it comes to the cardstock I'm having issues. We have decided to go black, my fiance wants matte [which I think looks like construction paper] and I want shiny. We cannot decide. Plus, I'm having a real issue with the cardstock that goes behind the invitation. I wanted something with a pattern, my fiance doesn't want anything.

 

How on earth can I ever make a decision? Time is starting to tick faster here and I really want to get my invites out.

Hello fellow Saskatchewanian! I am totally feeling your indecisiveness! Though the clock isn't ticking too quickly for me, I can understand how you could be frustrated. Could you make a few samples and get some friends/family opinions? The plain (matte) black may be too "we threw this together", but if you put some samples together maybe your fiance will like others

I got this matte paper that has a bit of a pearl look to it for some of our wedding stuff. That might be a nice option.

I would go to a craft/paper store and pick out a few sheets of paper, take them home and decide on what you like. Click the image to open in full size.

Haha, so- when in doubt, ask the people at Micheals.

 

We went in there to buy the cardstock, and the girl [who I actually went to grade school with but doesn't remember me because I'm not a dork anymore which is good because she tried to beat me up] helped us out and picked out some better card stock, which is black and has a patch look to it.

 

I absolutely love it and she feel in love with our colour scheme. Which I'm impressed because we both don't have any taste when it comes to stuff like that- we let our real estate agent pick out our paint colours for our condo.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
