When I first decided to advertise with The Knot, I wasn't sure what to expect. Would I have a ton of brides contacting me in the first week? Would I just have one or two brides emailing me a month? Would any of them even work out? I had no clue.
To my surprise, within the first week of officially being listed on The Knot I was meeting with a bride, Kaitlin, and her mom for an October wedding. They were great. They calmed any of the fears I had that meeting with complete strangers would be really weird or creepy or just plain awkward. They were none of the above...in fact, they were down to earth, calm, and I could tell they were going to throw one heck of a wedding.
As it came time to start designing the invites, Kaitlin basically gave me a leaf graphic that she wanted to use and then let me go to work. Here's what we came up with.
So, I love the colors and the fonts, but my absolute favorite thing about this invitation is what you see when you turn it around...
Is this not the most fabulous thing ever? When you turn the invite around, you have a pocket that fits all of the pieces of your invite. Everything is right there. So compact. I am a firm believer that everything (I'm talking in life in general) should have a place, so this invitation is right up my alley.
The RSVP card...don't you just want to attend this wedding? I'll have the Filet, please.
Kaitlin has set the tone for all of the brides that have found me from The Knot so far. They are so kind, down-to-earth, and they all have excellent style. More of that to come in the next few weeks.
But before I say good-bye, here's the progress that I've made on my August Fun List. I only have one more week to get everything done (yikes), but I am pretty happy with the progress so far. Some things are in still progress (I have been learning a word a day, reading, relaxing, swimming in the parents' pool, and playing with my nephews and niece, but I'm waiting until the end of the month to cross those off) but many have been accomplished and therefore are completely crossed off.
The most notable things that were crossed off this week involved me heading down to the south to celebrate a friend's marriage. More on that later, too...
