A little thing I like to call "Operation Wedding Dress" (aka, my dress is too small... but it won't be soon!)

I am really happy with how they turned out. I just mailed them out on Monday and already have been getting so many compliments on them.  Here are some pics....

      And I forgot to mention, we used a wax seal on the back and since it couldn't go through pre sorted, it cost us $2.07 to mail each!!!

            Amazing, congrats! I find it helps so much to have a goal to be working towards!

             

            I was supposed to do the NYC marathon in November, but when it was cancelled my entry was bumped to this year! So we're going to be in NYC the month before our wedding for the marathon. I need to start training too!

            So I designed my own passport invites and RSVP cards.....let me know what you ladies think. I'm getting pricing for how much it would cost to print these as we speak!

              I think they look great! I couldn't read p. 4,5, or 6 on my computer because I must not have that font and it just looked like a bunch of symbols.

               

              The only part that confused me was p. 3 of your invites "Together with their parents, Arthia and Debra Invite you to join them..." I would have expected to see your names here, not each of your moms (guessing)? I could easily be wrong though!
