Thursday night, Andrew and I started working on our Save the Dates. Tuesday night we had ordered a wood handle stamp online so we wouldn’t have to write each save the date out. The website was awesome! You can make any size stamp you need; allowing you to change the font style, font size, etc. After much deliberation, we decided on a stamp saying:
Write this down!
Emily & Andrew
Are getting married!
June 21 2013
Short, sweet, to the point. Love it. So, last night we got out off of our postcards we had bought over the past couple of weeks and started stamping. Well, Drew stamped. Apparently I am too shaky and ended up smudging the few I was allowed to do. My dream of being a surgeon is shattered.
After stamping (and a dinner break), we sat down with our guest list and picked postcards for everyone. That wasn’t really the plan to begin with. While I was buying them, I had picked out a few that reminded me of particular family members/friends, but we ended up sitting on our living room floor for hours surrounding ourselves with assigned postcards. It’s one of the few things that we will probably really get to do together, and we had a blast.
Definitely a perfect memory night. We won’t send them out until August, but we were both excited to actually do something that had to do with the wedding! Now I am stuck with the task of gathering all of the addresses and writing them on the postcards…Drew is allowed nowhere near that part. It’s not that he has bad handwriting, but it looks like graffiti and I think I am the only person
who has come close to mastering what he is trying to say.
Word to the wise: never buy a house. It is becoming BEYOND a headache! I won’t bore you with the details, but it is not a fun process. I am praying for our closing date to come SOON!
