OK.. here is the finished product!!!

I'm soooo excited!!! I cant belive we are now 68 days away from the BIG day!! woooohooooo!
Because we are having a destination wedding that takes place over the ever popular Spring Break period... we are breaking the "norm" of sending the invites out 6-8 weeks ahead of time and we sending them out now! Our families have soo much to plan in order to get there.. so we are sending them out a little early.
Hope you all like them!! What a process that was!!

Jaders,
Gorgeous, just gorgeous.

Love the color, and they are so beautifully made.

I remember your panic when your 1st option fell through, but these are awesome, so glad it all worked out.

Thank you so much everyone!!! I couldnt have been more pleased with the invitations.

There were some major headaches involved.. but havent we all experienced that in planning our weddings.

JCrow: I adore that tiffany blue color.. and papersource ROCKS for carrying it... now I can color coordinate everything.. Next up.. thank you notes (which they carry in the blue color) with a rubber stamp made from that digital "stephanotis" file.. and the dark blue paint... they are going to be handmade, by us.. which I am sooo excited about doing!!! Didn''t you mention that you spent $$ on invitations? and you dont regret it? Because of the bind we were in with the invites... we paid $$$$$ but after seeing the finished product.. I dont regret it at all!!!

Jamiesorr & ZoeBartlett & Val951 & Rascal49: Thanks.. I''m so excited about them!!!

Mela Lu: Check Check!!! I think the invites SCREAM Seaside!!! just the pastel of the blue.. its awesome!

Labbielove: I remember that initial panic.. man.. I felt soooo trapped and lost at the same time... it was our first "nightmare" with the wedding.. and I think we managed to "fix" it quite nicely...

Sumbride: My FMIL embroidered the ribbons. the one pictured was a "good one" some of them were off centered or a little distorted.. but we sent out 96 invites.. and I think 92 of the ribbons were "good"... so it worked out pretty well... She confessed to us that the machines she was using needed servicing.. but all in all they turned out pretty good.

DiamondFan: Thanks.. everyone always says they love my name.. it took until I was about 22 to grow to love it.. something about Evan.. its a boys name.. LOL.

Tacori: OMG.. I cant believe we are that close either... my to-do list is growing by the second. I''m working really hard to have everything situated and organized by the week of.. so I can actually enjoy the time before hand. They got sent in the mail yesterday!!! I''m soooo excited to finally start hearing from family and friends... its all coming together sooo well!

Thanks again everyone!!

letterpress & pocketfold invites- my favorite!

They look very lovely and are so fitting for your wedding.
