Wedding Invites (and a Birthday!)Thursday, May 28, 2015
Things finally seem to have slowed down around here, and I can breathe again!
We still have a lot on our plates, with the house re-model and all, but we can do things at a slower pace with that. Everything doesn't need to be at break neck speed anymore!! Yay!
Ugh, sorry for the exclamation over load! I really do have a problem!
Anyway, since I actually have a little time to spare today, I thought I would share the wedding invitations I designed for my baby sister! She got married a couple weeks ago, and I couldn't be happier for her. Plus, I was so excited for an excuse to do a wedding invite!
The wedding was a simple
back front yard affair, and very rustic. My parents own a ranch, and Nikki has always embraced our country background (more than me by a long shot!). So her colors were sage green and lavender and we went with a very rustic/wild flower look that I tried to copy in the invitations. With the whole affair being so laid back, there was no need for a whole "suite," so one basic invite was all I did.
Please excuse the bad photos! They really don't do the color justice. Our last house had awesome southern exposure, which made for much better photos. I fully admit that I am not a great photographer, and unless I have excellent light, my photos really suffer!
Anyway, another detail I really liked was that instead of envelopes, we used paper doilies tied with twine. It really went well with the whole theme, and they looked adorable!
I have to say, I am really hoping to get to do more wedding invitations in the future!
Also, I can't go without mentioning that today is a big day around here in the Meade home! (There go those exclamation points again...)
Today my honey turns 30!!
I think he's aging very well, but then again, I may be a little biased ;)
We were able to celebrate last weekend at our annual camping trip with a lot of our friends and family, and he doesn't know it yet, but I'm sending him off with a couple of his buddies for a surprise camping trip this weekend too!
And now, since I promised him ribs for his birthday dinner, I had better go make good on that.
Thanks for stopping by!
