After looking forever for wedding invitations (well, ok just 2 weeks...seems like forever), I have determined that there are very few, if any, invitations suitable for weddings that fold.  They are just single sheets of cardstock.  We are going to print our own invites and agreed upon one today.  Its very pretty, elegant looking, everyone agreed upon it ~ even if its not what I started out looking for.  Katie and I both like it.  We found those at Party City (will be returning the ones we bought at Staples)  She will use the little reply cards and envelopes as Thank You notes for gifts.  Ahhhhh, a double duty set ~ its a beautiful thing!

Now, we need a good sale on solid white or off white cardstock for the wedding programs.  Hobby Lobby doesn't have big packages of those colors.  Maybe Michaels or Office Depot will have a sale soon.When Bryant visits in Aug., we will be taking lots more engagement pictures to find the perfect one for the program!

We also found the makings for lapel flowers/corsages for everyone we needed.  Got all the ribbon and corsage pins also.  Thanks to Hobby Lobby for having a bridal event 50% off sale.  Now, we will have to make bows for them and thats done!

Its great being able to check things off the list!
