Good Invitations Hunting

Some days I think, "this thing is totally under control, we are smooth sailing til the big day." Then, there are days like today when I wake up and think "oh crap, there are only a few months to go and two of those months are holiday months and after Christmas everything on the to-do-list is going to be a tidal wave STOP PROCRASTINATING and get to work now!!!!

So, I got to work. One of the things that I have been hemming an hawing about that needs to be decided asap is the invites. We are going to mail them in January and I just know that if I don't have a strategic plan, it could end up a stressful situation.

We do have some "back-up plan" invites but I am not in love with them and they require some graphic design skills from me and some printing skills from elsewhere. So, I am starting a quest to find decently priced, expressive invitations that require no work. Let's see what we find...

The search begins at WeddingPaperDivas where I found these four favorites:

They are all very different, but I think it's clear I like flowers, right? I am kind of in love with these last two. Except I don't know if the orange is too bold on the last one, since it isn't technically one of our wedding colors. But it's still my solid favorite. What do you think?

I'm pretty happy with those but I am going to keep looking. Stay posted!

I totally dig the last one! Still... I pretty much am not entirely(at all) into the ones above though, they make me think of sad.

Well if they make you think of sad then that is pretty much the opposite of our goal. I guess those ones are OUTRO5000!
