THE 51 STAGES OF WEDDING INVITES // B&B WEDDING SERIES

When it comes to wedding planning, I feel like people don't talk about invites much. Maybe it's just because I'm a huge paper goods nerd, but this is something about the process I was SO excited about! It turns out if you're indecisive (like I am), it takes a liiiitttle more time than you'd think. In the end, we found wedding invites we absolutely loooooove, but I definitely thought I would get this task done in like 30 minutes. Sigh. So naive.
Here are the 51 thoughts while creating wedding invites:
-----------------


1. Oooh! We get to send out invites! Yes!
2. I can't fricking wait. Everyone is going to want to hang our invite on their fridge.
3. We have to do letterpress. Anyone who's anyone does letterpress!
4. Whoa. Letterpress is really expensive.
5. Wait this is like down-payment-on-a-house expensive.
6. Ok so maybe not letterpress. I'll Pinterest this up in another way somehow.
7. Hm...is gold foil still in? 
8. Never mind that's too expensive too. 
9. Okay let's just Google "cheap wedding invites".
10. Oh! We can afford this site!
11. Mmmkay let's see- 186 design available. 
12. Sort "low $ to high $$$". 
13. Welp these look more like 40 year high school graduation-y than wedding-y.
14. WHY ARE THESE ALL SO UGLY.
15. Screw this I'm designing my own. That's not hard right?
16. Should we have a picture of us or not?
17. Are pictures of us only allowed on Save the Dates?
18. Okay no picture of us. Artsy picture of leaves instead.
19. Wait...maybe sparklers?
20. Nope sparklers are too "4th of Julyish"
21. Ok these leaves rock, let me ask for opinions from people.
22. Soooo no one likes the leaves. Shit.
23. Time to Google "free stock photos of leaves"
24. "fall leaves"
25. "red leaves"
26. Whoa "leaves" looks weird after typing it 30 times.
27. Okay. Got the photo. Time to add text.
28. WHY IS NONE OF THIS TEXT LINING UP LIKE I WANT IT TO.
29. F*&( IT I DON'T CARE I'M JUST SCRIBBLING "COME TO THE WEDDING" ON A POST IT.
30. Ok. Calmed down. Maybe I should keep trying..to..make this...work...just..line..up..
31. (5 hours later) SCREW THIS I'M USING A PRE-MADE DESIGN
32. Ok...nothing pink..or orange..yellow is hard to read...purple looks bleh...hm...
33. Oooh! This one is nice! Okay design chosen I AM A GENIUS THIS IS AMAZING.
34. Names CHECK. Location CHECK. Time...
35. Wait.. 7pm? or 7 PM? or 7'oclock? 7 in the evening? Hm...
36. Blurb about marriage abroad, CHECK. Accommodations CHECK!
37. Do we put the registry on the back of the invite? *checks 50 wedding sites* 
38. Now the great part where we tell people they can't bring their kids...this should be fun.
39. Googles "how to tell people to not bring kids to a wedding" 20 times.
40. Whew. Add the wedding website and we are GOLDEN!! YAAAS.
41. Wait. Shit. Do we do RSVPs online? Or a card?
42. Is online RSVP cool and forward thinking or cheap and annoying to old people?
43. Will people forget to RSVP online? I like online RSVPs but do other people!?!?
44. Screw it we're getting RSVP cards, real mail is the absolute best.
45. *runs finished product past a bunch of people*
46. Okay. Time to order. Feeling great about this. *hits PURCHASE*
47. &%*$& DID I SPELL "accommodation" wrong?!!?!?
48. Nope we're  good. Whew. 
49. WAIT I BET I SPELLED OUR NAMES WRONG.
50.Okay nope those are good too. Time to stop staring at this goddamn screen.
51. Shuts computer. Gets glass of wine. 

THE END.
