Our Christmas Card and Other Things

Posted Dec 08 2012 6:35am

This year we sent out our first ever Christmas cards to friends and family!

I just love them.

My friend, Jessi , designed them for us {she’s also doing our Save the Dates!} and I couldn’t have been more thrilled with the outcome. I printed these out at Walgreens for cheap, using the matte finish. They are fun!

In regards to wedding planning, we’ve made a bit of progress. We signed the contract and put the deposit down on the venue in Austin that we loved, I sent out all my bridesmaid cards, found a dress that I *think* is the one and we are currently chatting with caterers. Our Save the Date cards will go out a week before Christmas if all goes as planned.

It feels really good to know that we have a definite date and place now….so I know that no matter what, we will get married on May 25th and it will be wonderful. The rest of the details will all work themselves out and I’ll definitely keep you guys posted as I plunge deeper into the wedding planning insanity. Since we are working on a pretty tight budget, we are doing a lot of things ourselves and picking the things that are most important to us to be “worth it”…. i.e. food. Obviously. We’re having a casual, laid-back ranch wedding and one of the most important things to me is that my friends and family walk away at the end of the night still talking about how delicious their dinner was. Maybe that sounds silly but for me, a really great dinner is a priority and I’m willing to save on other things to get that.

And that is the end of this brief public service announcement. I apologize if anyone has seen weird messages on ELR over the past week and has been unable to get on — my server has been experiencing some hiccups and hopefully everything will get back to normal soon.
