Bridesmaids dress recap: I still have no idea, but I found a dress I like that was not originally listed on my post! Funny how those things work, huh? I'll update y'all when I make a final decision.

I realize that a blog about wedding invitations might seem a little premature. But one day I was browsing the website and they had a special going on. I could order 8 free samples for free! I didn't have to pay for shipping or anything. Pretty smart if you ask me, because I totally look at them online, but still wonder what they look like in person. So I found 8 that I thought I liked and ordered them for a total of 0 dollars. They were waiting in my front office when I returned home from Punta Cana. I took them to Duck Dude's house and opened them with him. Here are our favorites and not so favorites! :)

Not so Favorites

1. I like the monogram, but other than that it's just too boring. I think I like a color background and while this is a cream, it just doesn't do it for me.

2. I like the script edge, but in person the brown looks a little too harsh... like "YOU WILL BE AT OUR WEDDING".... rather than "I'd like to invite you to our wedding".

3. I love the left side of this one, but why is the text so small on the right side? I do not care for all that blank space in the middle.. If I'm spending money on invitations, I don't care for a whole lot of blank space. 


1. I love this one because it's a flat card, but it doesn't look like it. I'm not a super floral-y person, but burlap flowers I can do. I really like how it mixes the burlap flowers with a fancy calligraphy text of what would be our names. I love juxtapositions and this one is pretty good. 

2. This one is Duck Dude's favorite. He likes it because it's simple and sleek. I like it because I think the colors are spot on and I wouldn't change a thing. 

3. I love this one because the gold is super shiny and really catches your attention immediately. The outer edge is definitely gray.. it came out more black in the picture. I think it's super pretty and has a fancy touch without being overly fancy.

As always, opinions are welcome! Have a wonderful Wednesday!


  1. It's never too early to think about invites :) The last two are definitely my favorite! I'm kind of partial to the gold, but I do love the simplicity of the one above it! Can't wait to see what you choose!

    1. You can't help but love the gold!! Thanks so much!!

  2. LOOOVEE the last two! I've had invitation drama lately in regards to the wording. My parents despise how I want to word it, "Megan & Drew...along with their families.." They want their names on it & let me tell you, it's been quite the battle. I just want to tell them that they're being needy & not the ones getting married lololol.

    1. haha ohhh Travis and I like "together with our families".... but I haven't thought about running that by the parents to see if they're ok with it!!!! ha shooooot.
