I've finished addressing the envelopes!

I've been working on the wedding invitations for the past week. Well, I've been working on them since October 2009, but I finally actually printed them and started putting the little info packets together last week.

Last night I finished addressing them. I still have 1 more insert to print and cut out, but then it'll just be a matter of getting them weighed, buying stamps, and handing them over to the USPS (scariest part!)

Anyway, I'm so proud of my wrap-around labels, that I just had to share.

Addressed Invite

Oh - also, the invite is sitting on the new cake plate for the wedding cake! My original one ended up being about 1/4 of an inch too small. My dad found this one in an antique/junk shop last week. YAY!

I was so hoping there would be a picture, love, love, love the wrap around label. I'm so happy for you. This is so exciting! Go Dad! Are you nervous, excited, scared, all of it, yet?

Was just thinking about your up-coming wedding yesterday. Getting down to the wire now. Classy looking, Tish.

Very nice. You've done such a good job in planning this wedding.
As you said: "but then it'll just be a matter of getting them weighed, buying stamps, and handing them over to the USPS (scariest part!)"
Lol, that can sound scary, but I think you can handle it very well. Go for it with a smile.

Did you know (or maybe you have even mentioned it and I just forgot) you can order postal stamps with your own photographs on it?

Tish, have your sweetie e-mail me. I've got lot's of dandy ideas concerning marriage to share with him. Steve S.

Thanks everyone!

It's a little bit against etiquette to use labels on wedding invites, but I just didn't feel up to being let loose with a silver sharpie on these envelopes. LOL I also printed our return address labels and used a cute little scalloped paper punch for those. As soon as I get everything totally finished tonight, I'll take pics and post of EVERYTHING.

WRT the stamps. I DID know you could order custom stamps. But, since I don't yet know how much these invites will weigh, I am not going that route. I HOPE they don't weigh over the max for the 44 cent stamps, because I REALLY want to be able to use these.

Love Stamps

I hope the weight is right, no wonder you would like the stamps.
You have done such a good job with all your wedding preparations. If I would have had to do all that, I never would have gotten married.

Well, I do think that the fact we've been together for almost 11 years help. The girls who are getting married, buying a house, etc all for the first time, are the ones who I can't imagine how they do it all.

My whole year has been ONLY wedding. That's helped.
