There are a whole bunch of wedding invitations, ranging from basic to mind-boggling in design, complexity, and price. I poked through this site to my heart's content, amazed at the variety available to me. Here are some that I bookmarked during my search:
When comparing all of these options, a few things become clear. One, I like invitations with color and interesting imagery. Two, I still have a lot of narrowing to do in my search, since these pretty much run the gamut of styles. Three, I am drawn to nature-inspired graphics, which is sort of surprising, since I'm not an outdoorsy type of gal. I don't camp, I don't like being too hot or too cold, and I don't like connecting with nature in any sort of way. I enjoy indoor plumbing, sleeping under a roof, and showering whenever I darned well please. Here's my typical reaction to being outdoors whenever it doesn't include a lounge chair, a cold drink, and a good book on the beach.
But I digress. I could feel my excitement growing at the prospect of getting our invitations from this site - it seemed like the best possible solution. I could pick an affordable option, choosing to print it on my own or have someone else print and construct it, personalizing it with customized text and colors. I definitely felt like I was getting closer to finding the right invitation, but I was still pretty bogged down in the multitude of directions I could go. Perusing the 1000s of invitations was becoming a nightmare, and I started to get slap-happy until I tried one last little idea. I expected it to be a waste of time, so imagine my glee when it actually worked out - stay tuned!
