Stop Stressing over Invitations!

Posted on May 22, 2015 by  Miss Long-Distance Bride   //   Comment

I thought our invitations were going to be a really tough task so I kept putting it off. I did not want to spend a ton on them but I wanted them to look elegant and really speak to our wedding theme and lay the foundation for our wedding day. I knew I wanted to be able to customize the cards and it had to include a picture of us since we did not do a save the date with our engagement photos. I thought I would completely DIY them using Vistaprint…but I got completely overwhelmed and had no clue where to start.

Then I remembered hearing about Ann’s Bridal Bargains. They have tons of invitation options with all types of themes. These invitations can fit any budget and most of them have optional add ons if you want to include RSVP and reception cards. They even print your address on the RSVP envelopes for FREE!! I ordered ours on a Thursday and they were delivered the following Tuesday so we didn’t have to wait anxiously for them to arrive! Once we send them off to our guests I will definitely do a post all about them! Right now I just want to inform you all of this great site…go check it out!!

We’re getting down to the wire and finalizing a whole bunch of tasks. While doing this, I thought about programs for our ceremony. To be honest, I think that most often they are a waste of paper and money. Half the guests don’t read them and the other half use them as a fan. I wasn’t super excited to go down this path, until I found a downloadable Word document from The McBaileys. I immediately fell in love with this program! It’s fun, lighthearted and most of all, US!

All you have to do is download the template and edit to fit your wedding! You can change the colors, wording, anything you want! After that, you can either choose to print it on a home computer or send off to have it printed elsewhere. Easy peasy!

Now that I’ve found a fun wedding program, I feel much better about purchasing them. At least I know that our family and friends will have a good laugh while waiting for us!

Birthday Girl

My birthday is just a few days away and I couldn’t be more thankful for this past year and everything that lies ahead!  I’m getting married in just a few months!!! Perfect “quarter-of-a-century” gift, if you ask me! hehe

I don’t have any specific plans, quite yet, but I do know that I’ll be putting together my invitations a few days before that. Luckily I have the greatest people around me to help, including Jeff!

Austin Move

Posted on May 19, 2015 by  Miss Creative Bride   //   Comment

In an earlier post, I wrote about considering moving out of state after the wedding. Well, it’s official! We are moving out of state in the beginning of September!

In my last post I mentioned Austin, and we are pretty sure we’re moving there but haven’t narrowed down a town, just yet. We’re so excited for the changes that are going to come as a newly married couple. Not only are we starting a new life together, but we’re doing so in a completely different atmosphere than what we’re used to. We’re more than aware of the possible challenges with a change so drastic but we are so ready for it!
