    We just sent out our invitations last night!!!

    It was quite the saga getting and ordering them. We went through about 2 weeks worth of proofs that sucked, our comments being ignored, etc. and unfortunately, now that we have them we know that there were still some mistakes, but we sent them out anyway.
    I'm drafting a complaint letter now. Oh well. At least they're out. We wanted to have them sent out in June.
    The invitations are perfect. The problem is the RSVP cards and the font on the TY card. At least the date's right this time 'round... *sigh*

    The invitations:

    The RSVP: The other side is plain white with my address. It was supposed to be all in colour with the flower and then have the address on the side that I'm showing here... I think the trouble is that on the website when they show what a "double-sided" RSVP postcard looks like, they give an example from a different flower set. but it comes across as false advertising. Oh well.

    TY Cards (I hate the font and am planning on getting a refund as they do not match the proof that had a nice script font)

      IMO, I think your invites look really good. The flower is really gorgeous and I think your guests will really enjoy receiving such a pretty invite in the mail.
      ps I love the pic of your FI dropping them in the mail. The look on his face is priceless! Congrats on getting them sent out!

        Congrats on getting them out! I think they look really nice and your guests will never notice the problems that you have with them. They look fabulous!

          They are pretty! I'm sorry to hear that you had so many problems with the vendor. How strange that they didn't think to use a script font on the other pieces? People are weird.

          Yay for mailing them out!!

            I love the colors, and your peony stamps! I wish we had nice stamps in the US w/o having to pay an arm and a leg to customize!

              Thanks, girls :) I know people probably won't notice. It was just one of those how dumb can people be moments... LOL. I mean, we sent back about 10 proofs and it was like they never fixed anything but one problem at a time... oh well. I know I wouldn't be anywhere near as pissed if it hadn't cost as much as it did and taken as long as it did to get them.

              I should have just made my own.
              But I DO love the flowers :)

                I think they are so pretty! That stinks when you get something you didn't pay or ask for.

                I love the pic of your FI putting the invites in the mailbox so cute. Now I wish I took a pic like that.
