For the past week I have been the wedding invitation Queen. I ordered invites online and when I got them I burst into tears because they were so terrible! So I went to the store bought some ribbon and bling, and went to work!! I attempted to make them prettier than they were before! Now that they are complete, I like them for the simple fact that I spent so much time trying to improve them. For those of you who have never thrown a big event, the invitation process is draining. Creating the labels, stuffing the envelopes, attaching the stamps, etc. etc.!! 2 nights ago I found myself sitting on my living room floor in tears. All of my bridesmaids are scattered throughout California and I am doing everything for my wedding alone. I have a few friends that are local but they are busy with kids, husbands, and other things. I feel guilty even asking them for help. I have envisioned how my wedding planning would go since I was little, and was a bit disappointed that it wasn't exactly how I pictured it. But then my wonderful fiance came and rescued me from the oh- so sad and dramatic pity-party I was having by myself. He is as macho as they come....Construction worker, Biker, typical tough guy! He came and sat next to me on the floor, and began stuffing invitations. He made my tears stop, and made me remember why I am so lucky to have him. He is amazing and is so kind and giving. Thank you babe for being everything I need and more!
