Last week I opened the door to the postman delivering a massive brown box with my name on it. I squealed and then ran upstairs to show my mum. I knew exactly what had just arrived and I could barely wait to open it.
Planning the wedding invitations, if I’m being totally frank, gave me a headache on a number of occasions. I am not creative, in the arty sense. I don’t do crafts. I don’t have the patience or the fine-motor skills to sit down and make something pretty out of card and fiddly bits and bobs. It’s just not me.
For a long time I also didn’t know exactly what I wanted the invitations to look like. I saw loads of ideas on Pinterest, but the ones I liked were either too pricey or involved a very creative-maker.
So I put the invitations to the back of my mind for as long as I possibly could. Of course, it wasn’t too long until my mum started nagging on a daily basis asking if I had made up my mind yet. When the time came that we really needed to start thinking about the invitations, Bradley thankfully had a day off. So we sat down together and scanned the entirety of Etsy to find a decently priced, pretty-looking invitation.
After a couple of hours of searching and shooting each others’ preferences down, we found Rhonda’s Etsy page, with the perfect invitation design. We sent her an email asking for a quote on the number of invitations and information cards we wanted and within a couple of minutes she had responded. Several messages later, and our invitation written up, she sent us a draft copy of the finished product.
Two weeks later, the big brown box arrived at my door.
As much as I want to, I can’t put up a picture of our actual invites! But they are very pretty and we’re so thankful to have found Rhonda at the PrintedLoveCo. She made the “Invitations” process so much easier especially with a great price tag. We can’t wait to order the rest of our stationary from her in the next few months.

Before anyone freaks out, most of the invitations haven’t been sent out yet. Yours will probably be on its way soon. Or you’re just not invited – our bad.
