We invited people BY PHONE for the wedding and some via email. We only printed about 10 invites (from Michael's) to send to family overseas. My parent's are Italian and felt that if formal invitations went out that people would feel obligated to still send a gift and they were uncomfortable with that idea since it is a destination wedding....so I've been listening to my mother complaining about the fact that she has to call so many people, to which I respond - it was your choice!
I still don't have bridesmaid dresses - I'm only having a MOH and one other person. I loved the idea of a destination wedding to be able to keep things small. I'm from a family to which "small" = 250 people. The concept of under 100 is totally foreign...I love it!
My colours are hot pink, baby pink and chartreuse. I think I might do gray for the bridesmaids.....
