The invitations have been ordered!
Meghan and I went last week to Paper Parade Stationary store and looked through the books for a couple of hours. If you have never formally ordered printed invitations before, you can't imagine how big these books of examples are. They are HUGE, and weigh a ton. Anyway, Meghan and I persevered and finally narrowed it down to 5-7 paper/colors. Then Joe came and gave his two cents. On Tuesday I sat down with the stationary store representative to run through a couple of choices. Turns out our first choice invitations would have run us $2500!!! I couldn't believe it. Sorry, we didn't get those for you. But I think you'll like our second choice just the same (and they were about 1/6th the cost!). :)
I went and saw the proof of the invitation today on my lunch break. They look great. So the order has been placed. Phew!
Thanks again, Meghan, for making Friday a fun day!
