AMANDA.RX- I deserve a prize... I found the invites you like on the costco website for 25% off (deal they have with e-invite). They do thermography, not letter press... I don''t think you actually need the costco membership to order through the site.. .http://pal.einvite.com/product/Wedding/WeddingI...

Invitation Wording Help!

I am having a bit of trouble with invitation wording. The wedding will be very traditional and formal, my parents are hosting but I tend to like the non-traditional wording with the cutsey hallmark phrases (don''t barf). Which invitation wording works best? What is the best way to say "reception to ...

I love princess- do you have any outlets near you? It is nice to online shop, but it looks to me like they might have just bought things at outlets and are selling them with a mark up?

Also, you must know that sample sales are ** FINAL SALES **. I ended up buying my dress from a sample sale at Kleinfelds and had a serious case of buyers remorse.

Call Kleinfelds and ask when their next sample sale is, they have one every month, usually the first Sunday. Some local stores may simply have a "sample rack" that you can choose from any day you go in. Call beforehand and ask.

Hey Basil- My girls are wearing the long sophia in silk tricotine in navy The silk tricotine fabric is super luxurious and feels wonderful on, but it is heavier/warmer than you would expect (a plus for my fall wedding).

Hi Liang- I am in a similar situation with bridesmaids in different cities.

I think the world of weddings has changed... 30 years ago, weddings weren''t as lavish and couples probably always made a ''profit'' on their wedding, whereas today, I think it is very rare that the wedding gifts amount to more than the wedding costs...

I replied to your last post, but just wanted to show you this similar setting.
It is by Sholdt design. I agree with everyone that the Tacori setting is beautiful, but I still think it is extremely bulky.

Good luck, and I hope you like the Tacori setting in person more than I did!
