- Wedding: September 2009
I decided months ago that I was going to DIY our invitations, since it was something that I didn’t feel too particular about, and I felt that I could make what I had in mind for less than half the price of retailer’s prices.
Cut to four months later, when I’m crying daily (sobbing, really) about how much work I have to do, and I suddenly decide that I don’t give a s**t about how they look. By this point, I had already made several mistakes on the suite, so I just figured that I would roll with the punches and get them in the mail, no matter how they looked.
So, to break it all down, here is a list of where things went wrong:
1. I made them myself.
2. I printed them on a copy machine.
3. The copy machine printed them crooked.
4. The adhesive that I used to glue some of them to their backing caused the ink to smear.
5. The paper leaf cutouts and adhesive pearl adornments became too cumbersome after awhile, so only about a third of the invitations are what I consider to be pretty.
So while they’ll get the message across that we want to invite the recipient, they will also send the message that I am a sloppy, lazy mess. Shoot.
I’d show you all pictures, but I didn’t even take any because I’m so ashamed of them.
So, please, Hive: Assure me that you, too, have had wedding plans go awry.
