Some of the most stressful things about weddings involves paper.
Save the dates. Invitations. RSVPs. STAMPS (for serious, y’all, get the post office to look at your invites before you slap stamps on them). And then the last minute “Oh crap, we need programs.” Which of course means that a lot of people skip the programs, and I really don’t blame them.
My husband is only picky about a few select things, and he speaks his mind when he is. Our invitations happened to be an area he was picky about. He wanted letter pressed invitations. I’ll admit, this added to my stress, because it added to the budget and we had to find someone who would make them. Luckily, I came across Mama’s Sauce (probably via pinterest) and they were the perfect vendor to take Tim’s design and make it all letter press-y.
I’ll admit, when I opened the box of invitations, I cried a little. They were just so pretty. And it was just so close. And when you’re planning your wedding sometimes your emotions get a little out of hand.
Later on, probably a week before the wedding or sometime ridiculously close, we tackled programs. I considered not having them at all, but I realized that we could just print some on card stock ourselves and they didn’t need to be anything crazy special or high quality. In the end, I was pretty happy with them. In our programs, we included a little blurb about our unplugged ceremony, and asked guests to turn off their phones and cameras and be in the moment with us.
