probably the most important thing I’m learning from this process is to recognize what really matters and what doesn’t. take the invitations, for example. I couldn’t bring myself to spend a ton of money on something, ultimately, that would go into the trash.
But I also didn’t want a generic invitation with black script and none of that krakberry sparkle that we all love. (hee)
so we were going to make the invites ourselves. without going into too much boring detail, i’ll just say there were extremely frustrating technical issues that were kind of beyond our control that led us to rethink that decision.
it was a bummer, yes. but it was also a lesson in rethinking a plan and going with a better option. you guys, this could have been a huge deal. but the fact that we figured it out and were able to get invites made quickly (and at a huge discount, wheee) bodes very well for the future. and plan b invites look awesome. so, so happy with them!
i’m not going to post a photo of them because I want the guests to see them first. but i will plug the online company that printed them (and our save the date cards), because they’re awesome and inexpensive and do really good work.
