My Invitations were a disaster!

Ahhhh….the invitation. Once you get through the sticky issues of who actually gets their name listed on the invitation [we have an entry on that debacle coming shortly] you have to go through the task of picking out the invitation. Many people would say that the invitation sets the tone for the wedding: how formal it is going to be, if there is going to be a theme, even just what to wear. It is a very important part of the wedding planning process and needs to be given careful consideration.

This bride was getting married in India to a very fancy Indian born gentleman. I happened to be one of the people invited to the wedding. My mother told me about the invitation over the phone and I asked that she open it for me. When she did she told me it was totally illegible.

Turns out, after 2 weeks in the mail in the middle of the summer the beautiful gold leafing that was in the invitation had all melted leaving the invitation illegible and the gold spilling out all over your hands and the floor when it was opened.

Here are some of our favorite invitations…..
