Invites: Stuffed, Sealed, Stamped, and Ready for Sending!

Willi and I are getting married in just under 3 months, which sounds like crazy talk when you've been planning a wedding for over a year. We are officially in the "home stretch" as Willi's mom says. Weekends are mostly occupied by wedding DIY projects now, and likely a few posts here will have to do with wedding crafting. This weekend's undertaking was the wedding invites.

And man, I can't tell you how great it feels to have the invitations not only printed (we started talking to Abby of Consider the Lilies in August--that's right, AUGUST) but addressed, stuffed, stamped, and sealed. After 54 back and forth emails with Abby, our invites were finally sent for printing in December and in hand when we returned from holidays (and ACL surgery recovery--silly ACL, why did you think this was a good time to tear?) in January. Yesterday, my close friend Katie and I sat down to address, stuff, stamp, and seal these babies. And who's penmanship is responsible for that beautifully addressed envelopes? That would be Katie. My handwriting peaked in 3rd grade.

I also need to interject that working with Abby was a wonderful, fun, and creative process; just through email (no phone calls) Abby was able to understand what we were looking for and paint a wonderful, unique invite we're super excited about (at an affordable price to boot!)

Very excited to send this stack off tomorrow!

Abby posted her own photos of our wedding invites--thanks Abby! If you're considering personal stationary for wedding or any other reason, check out her Etsy shop--again, she was a pleasure to work with.
