When we got our invitations I got all teary eyed.  We were just both in awe at how nice they looked and we just couldn’t believe we are finally getting married (after 10 years) so it was a really nice moment for the both of us.

Hahah, I think I cried at how much the darn things were costing me!  But seriously, it didn’t seem official until the invites were ordered…then all of a sudden, a light shone down from up above and was like…ding…you’re getting married!  =)

It’s def an exciting moment!

I’m in the process of proofing mine to send to the printer, and I keep reading them. And asking FI to read them to make sure there are no mistakes. And asking my mom and dad and sister to read them. And co-workers. I guess that comes from being in an editing industry, but yes, I think it maybe goes into it all being a little more real now, and I don’t want to screw up! Last night I was obsessing over "five thirty" versus "five-thirty" and FI was saying "five twenty two, fiiiiiiiive …. seventeen" just to make me laugh.

yes, had the anxiety- check on their shipping times- mine took longer than expected for engagement invites and that sucked.

Oh yeah – well not on my invites as I made them myself…but I’ve been doing it on everything else. In fact, last night I woke up from a dead sleep in a panic on what color wedding cake I ordered…..lol.

I can’t wait to see them when you get them back!!

definitely clicking "i agree" or "enter" makes it real – i’m sure receiving them and sending them out will be another "here we go!!" moment!

what’s the ETA for your invites?? exciting!!!!

too bad i had mine pre-printed for what was going to be the feb 09 church weding – guess i should have double checked with the church on how long they were gonna take with the annulment?!?!?  oooops my bad!

I had the same "OMG" moment too!  Once I clicked on the order now button, it finally felt like it’s written in stone and there’s no turning back!
