Congrats- i hope they are everything you hoped they’d be when they get to you! And good luck on the rest of your tasks- I’m sure they’ll come together quicker than you know. I decided to do my own calligraphy, so I think I will be addressing envelopes into eternity…

I also ordered invites this week!!  Feels good to cross another item off the checklist!  Right now I’m collecting availability and pricing info for our rehearsal dinner.  We also still need to finalize the contract with our cake baker (already had a tasting) and find ceremony musicians (among a million other small to-dos).

Congrats!!! I’m just finishing up all my addressing this week. Our DIY invites have been quite the project and I can’t wait for those baby’s to be out the door! Hahaha

@future mrs Q:  @moose91:  I’m doing my own too! I saw this great thing on pinterest where you print off the address, stick it in the envelope, and put it on a light box and you can trace perfect calligraphy. I can actually do calligraphy but I didn’t want to make any mistakes on spelling or spacing. It has worked out really well and only cost $35 for the box! (But it has taken me approximately 6 hours to do all 80 of them.) Good luck ladies.

@moose91:  I got the box from Blick Art store. They had the best price and I also have a frequent buyer card that got me 15% off! It’s definitely sooo much easier to do them. Here is how they look:
