Custom Wedding Invitations

When Jeffrey and I got married I really had no clue how to plan a wedding or even what I was supposed to want. I know lots of young girls grow up planning their weddings and have all kinds of dreams and plans. Not me. I didn't even know where to start. On the plus side, that meant there were things I didn't know I was supposed to want or have, so I didn't have them and, therefore, did not have to pay for them. On the negative side, every decision was stressful because I didn't know what I should want or have. But then again, I've heard the whole wedding planning thing can be seriously stressful anyway.

We did have the usual wedding basics like invitations, flowers, cake, punch and napkins. I remember we had to have the napkins reprinted because they were wrong. The wedding invitations turned out nicely, though back then we had to go to a shop of some kind, look through books of invitations, choose one, choose what it would say, etc. We chose "This day I will marry my friend, the one I laugh with, live for, dream with, Love."
Now brides can simply go online and choose from many 1st Class Wedding Invitations like this one I really like - though there's one with a motorcycle I bet Jeffrey would like. It's really easy to choose one you like and then fully customize it by adding personal wedding info, choosing a verse and then being able to fully customize that, choosing the font and font color, and other options. I don't see the same verse we used for our invitations, but it is really easy to insert whatever you want. The whole process is quick and easy, and invitations ordered today can be shipped by Friday. I haven't priced invitations in years, but these prices look pretty reasonable.

One of these days Beth is going to decide she wants to get married. A big dream wedding isn't something she's talked about, so I guess we'll see what she decides. At least she'll be able to choose from some Contemporary Wedding Invitations and get that part of the planning taken care of easily.

  1. My mother passed away a year before I got married so I didn't have a clue how to plan a wedding. Some how I managed, but we did end up with the wrong wedding cake I ordered.


I love your comments! Keep them coming.
