it has been wedding central over here in sarah learns- land for the past couple of days!
brad and i are getting married in 99 days! aka, almost 3 months. and as of monday, i hadn’t finalized or ordered our invitations yet.
see, i had been working on the invitations quite a bit, but i was having a problem with my favorite font distorting when i went from a powerpoint file to a pdf (or a jpeg, or a png, etc. – i tried them all!).
before i converted to the proper printing format.
and after… not good. see how the “&” symbol is lost and the curlies on my “t” and brad’s “k” & “l” are cut off? it did that no matter what i did! 😦
so finally, tuesday, i said, “screw this” and went looking for inspiration for a new invitation look. and oh boy i found one i loved!
when i saw these invites after randomly searching in google images, i knew what i wanted to do. so i spent about 4 hours making different colored circles and editing the fonts and layout until i came up with this:
brad and i had decided to order our invitations from vistaprint because i’ve had good luck with them in the past and because we got an awesome deal on everything through ebates! (full disclosure: that’s a referral link)
i uploaded everything on tuesday night and hit “complete order”. and now i’m holding my breath until they arrive!
i hope they turn out as awesome as i’m imagining them, because if so, then we got an amazing deal on them! i guess we’ll see before i go singing the praises of vistaprint + ebates discounts though…
my next wedding project? a guest book inspired by savvy julie!
i also have some really fun posts planned for the next couple days/weeks including: lessons learned from moving in with a significant other, an apartment update (!!!), 101 in 1001 updates, and more!
are you a diy-er?
any diy wedding tips for me?!
i’m also planning to make our escort/place cards, table numbers, ceremony programs, thank you’s…
we also still have to buy gifts for our bridal party.
