      Tori:

       

      Thank you so much, and I AM NEVER doing them again lmao! yeah I am very happy with them, but the funny thing is...is as soon as I was done them I had to post them on here for you guys to see just because you've been there throughout the whole ordeal lol lol

      As far as shipping them, I finished doing them ready to mail......and then found out that the canadian post office is on STRIKE! WTF lol lol just my luck is what my TA said this morning, as I was freaking out about my deposit deadline for my guests...lucky for me our TA is amazing, and is extending our deadline for me lol lol

       

      Either way, I think they will take two stamps each, as there is ALOT of hot glue and extras that have made them a little heavy lol

        Isn't that annoying!!! I couldn't believe it either!! I had designed my invites awhile back and we were just waiting for confirmed dates and rates and then they took a little longer than expected to put together.  We mailed ours Tuesday, luckily our guests have until August 26th to book our group rate so fingers crossed the strike will be over by then! 

        We originally were going to do evites and then send formal invites to those who booked.  Now with this strike I am half wishing we did!!!

         

        I am trying to decide what to start next now that invites are done... I am almost bored without having them to do anymore but I was definitely happy to see them go!!

            I haven't sent any forms in yet I am going to wait till the deposit date ends too! I haven't contacted tai flora yet but I have been looking on there website and there are so many flowers so choose from. I have went dress shopping but I haven't picked yet I am going this Saturday and I have it narrowed down to 2, I am so excited!! Have you got yours? What are your colours?

I checked out the floral web site and there are so many nice ones to choose from.  If you download the brochure there are more pics of the bouquets they do!!  That was my second favorite part.  Dress shopping ofcourse was first!!  Have you got a dress yet??

              YAY you finally posted! they look amazing! :) :) So happy for you that your mini nightmare is over and they are done...it was worth all the trouble hun! I didnt factor postage in either when i did mine and all the flowers and envelope liners and little details ended up costing us $1.21 each but it was worth it. I saved a ton doing the invites myself so i ended up spending more on postage LOL ahhh well! the color combination looks fantastic together as well. Have you decided how you are incorporating all these colors in the wedding yet?

                  OMG!! I am soo jealous! First of all, your invites look amaaaazing! Second of all, they're done, and your wedding is next year! I'm getting married in less than 3 months, and I only gave the final ok to print mine today! Plus, with the strike...BOOOO!!! We're just waiting to hear what the verdict will be. Keep in mind, that we just got engaged in Feb, and decided we wanted to do it this year. But, are we ever behind!! hahaaa!! We already have our guests confirmed, so it's almost senseless to send out the invites at all! Ahhh..well, I love them, can't wait to see them. Ok, sorry, that was my vent for the day!
