Two months and one day away.....

The wedding is rapidly approaching, and I have very few days off left to get everything done. I had my first fitting for my wedding dress yesterday. So exciting!

Over the past two weeks, I've been creating the invitations with the help of Scott.

I got the Martha Stewart invitation kit at Home Goods for $4.99, which included the paper and enveloped. We inserted envelope liners made from craft paper to class them up a bit. For the invitation design, I used this free customizable design from the Wedding Chicks blog, and added a tree in Photoshop. I think they turned out pretty nice. The postage cost me about 18 bucks, so that was the most expensive part. I'm so glad I opted to make my own and save a lot of money. I would have paid at least $150 or more if I had ordered them.

Yes, we added the President and Mrs. Obama to the guest list last minute. Molly told me that if you send them an invitation, you'll receive a nice letter back from them. Apparently you can invite the queen of England, too, but only British citizens will receive a reply. Who knows? Maybe the Obamas will be in North Carolina and decide to swing by for some fun.


  1. Will you allow Barack to smoke some cigs if he comes?

  2. If he shows, he can do whatever he wants.
