Wow, i think were theme twins!

I’ve only been planning mine for 13 days, i did send a save the date e-mail to a few close friends and i’m trying to keep it light hearted. heres what i sent them (the convention is an event we all work for every year)

"I know, you’re all like “Look at Sansserif sending mass e-mails out to people. What up with that?” you look at the mailing list… “Ugh… It must be convention related…”  No, It’s not about the convention. I’m not even using the right E-mail for that.  “Well,” you think, “The title is up-beat.  Maybe it’s a party or something!”
Hells yes it’s a Party!
A BBQ to be precise.
And there’s a theme!
“Ooh, I’d better get sewing…”
Now hang on I haven’t even told you what it is yet!
“Okay, go on.”
Fiance and I have decided that 6 years is long enough and this summer, the last weekend of August, We will finally be getting married!
“So… what’s the theme?”
/me facepalm
“Oh I get it! Awesome!”
The wedding will be a casual outdoor Southern style BBQ at my dads house (most likely) .  It will be the last weekend of august either the 29th or the 30th (We are leaning towards the 30th) but we’ve only been planning this thing for 6 days. 
So consider this your early “Save the date” (I know how far in advance you guys like to plan things!)  And if you could all send me your fer reals mailing addresses I will have shiny (or matte) paper things to send you eventually.
Oh and feel free to bug me about anything, questions, comments, advise, “Sansserif shut the hell up already we know you can’t decide what shoes to wear” I’m terribly excited, and my LJ will be reflecting this…
Thanks so much!
And much love to you all!"

This isnt approprate for everyone i know but i had fun writing it and wanted to share.  it also got across at least o  my friends how fun and laid back i expected my wedding to be.

for my "for real" invites i’m still planning on a super casual "Its a party! (with a wedding)" feel and i thnk the fact that they’ll be getting invitations wiht RSVP info will make it feel Wedding-ish enough.
