Stressed about invitations…to no longer stressed

Like I was saying yesterday…

I lost it, I was completely stressed out about wedding invitations, frustrated with all the companies, and irritated that I couldn’t settle on the right invitation….

I went to Michael’s with my mom.  I found one do it yourself invitation that was okay…

Then we went to Party City.  I looked through one binder with my mom, and made 1/4 of the way through a second binder, and then I thought I was going to scream.  After looking through 1 and 1/4 binders, I didn’t see a single one that I really liked.  The thought of looking through the rest of that second binder and the several other binders that they had was pure torture to me.  So I told my mom, “I QUIT!  I can’t take it anymore!  If I look through one more binder, I think I’m going to vom.  Let’s go please.”  She easily agreed, and said she was willing to come back another time if I wanted.  I LOVE MY MOM!

So for the rest of the week I suffered through looking at countless websites American WeddingWedding Paper DivasRexcraft, to name a few…

THEN….Last weekend Zach and I went to Michael’s to have another look, and we found two that we sort of liked…

Zach came up with the great idea of simply designing our own.  So we got a picture of one more invite that we liked, so we would have some inspiration….

Then on Sunday, Zach and I went over to his parent’s house and his mom and I spent the afternoon looking at invitations…having some idea of what we both liked and knowing that we either wanted something grape/winery/vineyard themed or with some type of design like the pictures above, we looked through the catalogs she had, looked at websites, looked at the options for designing our own

Then we stumbled upon Invitations By Dawn!  Within minutes of looking through the website, I found an invitation that Zach and I both thought was okay….

The sample arrived a few days later in the mail…the sample was not like what I saw online and I realized, this invite was not what I wanted after all.  *UGH*  All this searching, and I thought I found what I wanted…

But all was not lost!

When Zach’s mom and I were browsing the internet, we found Wedding DNA, a website for downloading the graphics or templates that you like.  I knew there was something on there that I liked, showed it to Zach, he liked it too…and the decision was made…we created an account with Wedding DNA, got the graphic we liked, and began designing our own invitation!

Now it’s time to work on the honeymoon!
