- Wedding: June 2010
We are having a welcome event for all of our wedding guests a few days before our wedding. It is casual and collegiate preppy themed (the event is on our alma mater’s campus, where we met).
I spent the last two weekends painstakingly making invites. I had to hand cut green argyle paper, then printed the invites on vellum, which I also had to hand cut. Then I punched holes into all the sheets and matched the vellum with the argyle. I included a little vellum insert about the transit we are providing and some copies of exerpts from The Preppy Handbook about attire, just for fun. I finally finished all of them, labeled envelopes (but thankfully didn’t seal them) and was finished late last night.
I brought one to work so I could weigh it for stamps. A coworker was looking at it, loved it and then said “when is it?” I LEFT THE DATE OFF. Location, time, transit, everything is on there execpt the date!! I’m going to print two lines on extra vellum I have about the date and glue it to the bottom of the invite (over the existing vellum, where there is blank space). Not perfect. But not the end of the world, right? I think they will still be cute. I HOPE. You ladies are the only ones who can truly feel my pain….
