Yes, I felt like a huge weight had been lifted. We decided to go the DIY route and bought a pretty complicated pocket invitation kit from Michaels with ribbons and all that jazz. It sounded like it was easy, but first our printer refused to recognize the custom paper size, and we had to buy a new printer that would. Then I printed all the envelopes in a fancy French Script font because I thought it looked better than my handwriting and we had them stamped and ready we thought and then realized that the ink, which was dry, nevertheless was rubbing off the envelopes. So we had to go buy more invitation kits just for the envelopes (they were a unique size that couldn’t be replaced with any sort of generic ones)  So when they were finally done it felt great to send them out into the world.

Congrats! I definitely felt like a weight was lifted off my shoulders after getting the invites out and then I became obsessed with checking the mailbox everyday for the RSVPs!

Exciting! After we sent out STDs, it felt so much more real, I can’t imagine how I’ll feel about invitations.

I sent mine out on Monday night and it was such a relief but also a need anxiety about them getting to people and the response cards getting back to me. Luckily I already have back 12 response cards In that short of a time! It was all people accepting the invitation so that made me feel good. Every time I go to the mailbox I get excited when I see the envelopes! I am sure I’ll get a little sad if and when I get my first decline.

Woo hoo! Isn’t it a great feeling?

We got some in the mail on the 8th, and the rest on the 9th (we were still waiting for some addresses from FI’s side). We had our first RSVP via mail come in last Tuesday, and a few have come every day. I love checking the mail now!
