Invitations & Embossers

Thursday, May 12, 2016

As wedding planning simultaneously picks up and comes to a close, I'm finding myself missing bits of it already. One of the parts I was dreading most – hand addressing all of our save the dates and invitations – was surprisingly one of the most enjoyable. Each night, for about 10 days, Brian and I would sit down at our kitchen table and address 10 invitations each, talking about our relationships with the person whose name we were writing, laughing about funny addresses (a friend of mine in England lives on Feline Court in an area called Cat Hill – I kid you not!)

We designed our invitations ourselves with the help of Brian's sister, Lauren. Adding our personal touch to everything we've done has made every element of the wedding so far feel so special, so we were over the moon when Wedding Paper Divas offered some beautiful embossers to personalize the plain white envelopes we used for our invitations.

We picked three embossers (a special one for our thank you cards after the wedding), and they couldn't have been easier to order. All you do is pick a design (so many great ones to choose from) and add your information where it asks (name, address, etc.). Most importantly, you get to approve a proof before anything is shipped; important because I've misspelled Hayes an embarrassing number of times during this process (Hays?! Wedding brain). 

We love our embossers so much we've been using them on just about anything we mail: bills, birthday cards, random notes. They're just so fancy ;-) And that's why we love them. Invitations can get expensive – fast. These are a special way to add a nice touch without breaking the bank. Plus, you can have them for years to come and keep on using them or just keep them around to remember your first address together.
