What I want the invites to look like and figuring out the guest list. Ugh.

@subola:  I think the 2 year rule is a good idea. At some point I guess I need to stop tiptoeing around people and protecting the feelings of people I haven’t had contact with in a while.

We don’t have a specific theme, but everything is centered around the venue (ceremony outside in a maze and reception in an old barn) and a natural and relaxed vibe. Our colours are green, khaki and white (see pic). The problem is I’m looking for invitations that are somewhat out of the norm and has some special element and interest. Any ideas?

@subola:  Our Save the Dates ended up only costing about $56 total. We did some DIY magnets that look pretty sweet actually (going to post about them tomorrow). It’s more-so I was just in the middle of crafting them when this post went up and it’s making me realize we’re undecided on who to invite to fill the last few tables.

So far I’ve done:

  • Guest list
  • Budget
  • Wedding colors
  • Venue
  • Dress
  • A few details
  • Some songs: first dance, walk, and introduction songs
  • Bridesmaid/groomsmen gift ideas (some purchased)
  • Photographer
  • Some outline of our schedule that day
  • Favor ideas
  • Cake

I still need to do:

  • DJ
  • Flowers
  • Centerpieces
  • The rest of the details
  • Bridal party dresses/outfits
  • Invitations
  • Save the dates
  • Hair/make up
  • Decorations
  • Transportation

Next thing I want to get done is DJ.  I still have over a year, so I don’t feel overwhelmed yet Smile

Thought everything was going so smoothly and I had some pretty minor concerns about bridesmaid gifts and invitations – and then THIS happens with 6 months to go before the wedding…unlikley I will find another great place for both the ceremony and the reception that can also sleep a lot of out of town guests, especially on August long weekend so close to the wedding! Hopefully they will stay open for business or a new owner will buy before our wedding – but goign to start looking at other options today – guess I will have to look at renting tents/silverwear/catering/lights and sound/linens – all the things that were already provided by the lodge for FREE – wonder if I will get my deposit back if we have to switch venues – gah!
