We made a real purchase! No, not just a magazine or book or even one of my DIY guides. I am looking into handmaking some of my paper- invites, save the dates and thank you cards. But I haven’t had a chance to do a craft yet, and in the meantime, our engagement party was held last Saturday. (More on that soon!)
I decided to look at the company my future mother-in-law had used to order the invitations for the party. She sent out this lovely invitation:
Um, ours said Suzanne and Michael.
There wasn’t an exact matching Thank You card, but I did find this cute design with champagne glasses that corresponded nicely with the invites- plus you know how I feel about champagne! But then another one caught my eye. Initially I had wanted a card that featured the New York skyline or Brooklyn Bridge- something that would show a little bit of Michael’s and my home, since we were doing everything in New Jersey. I couldn’t find anything I liked until I spotted this one:
Torn between the champagne and the skyline, I knew I needed to choose quickly- the party was days away and we’d just received an early gift. I asked Mike to weigh in, even though I was sure he would probably think they were both fine.
Wrong! He loved the skyline picture. I have to give him more credit, lately he’s been listening and answering wedding questions. He likes the idea of tying in NYC and really liked this Thank You. Decision made- cards ordered!
Tonight we’re sitting down and starting the process- they’re blank inside so we can write a little note to each person. Michael has offered to help, but I might let him off easy with just signing his name- or writing out the addresses. But mostly I’m just excited to do it together!
