Happy Monday! Here in St. Louis we got hit with yet another ice/snow storm yesterday and you can tell the city is revolting. I even saw a middle-aged man walking out of Michaels Craftstore yesterday carrying a massive indoor palm tree plant!! When is spring coming??
Anywho…Sharing something dear to my heart today. The wedding invitations (and all other printed materials) are designed, printed and shipped out, and thanks to the lovely hand lettering work by Maggie of Type & Title
, I think they turned out beautiful. You will not believe how amazing it felt to mark that wedding task of the master (days long) to-do list. Honestly, the to-do list is getting much shorter and I couldn’t be more thankful and relieved.
Also, if anyone were to ask me if designing/printing your own wedding invites was a good way to save money while adding personality…I’d say run the other way. I will never do wedding invitation design again and I can’t believe how many hours I spent fussing over paper texture or shade of gray! Spent the money for a full set (designed by someone else) and just be done with it.
Have any of you designed your own wedding invitations in the past? I’m curious to know if I was the only one that would now suggest spending top dollar for someone ELSE to piece it all together. Seemed so simple in the beginning. Thoughts?
