now that they are all sent out and replies are flowing back in, i decided it's a nice time to show y'all our rehearsal invitations that i absolutely died over and secretly cried when i opened the package.
i knew i wanted a nice letterpress invitation that felt relaxed but still beautiful and personalized at the same time. since our rehearsal dinner is being held at a steakhouse, i liked to picture these invitations in a tuxedo t-shirt because it says i want to be formal, but i'm here to party type of deal. can you name that reference?
so when i saw these on etsy.com, specifically here, i knew it was love. and then when i emailed elecia and we began our work together, it was even more than a dream come true. she was incredible, quick, intuitive, unbelievably talented, and truly wanted to make sure i was happy!
the first thing i knew that needed to be changed though were the adirondack chairs. they're lovely, but definitely not for a fall kentucky steakhouse type of rehearsal.

what? you think i'm crazy for blurring out certain parts? well hellllllo! i had to. :)
we don't want any rehearsal crashers.
and i basically fell off my chair when i held the envelopes in my hand. it would have made sense to go with a regular color envelope but i said NOPE! i'm not a *regular* type of girl, i'm a *cool* girl.. (can you site that reference??) so i chose a super preppy kelly green envelope to complement the navy blue writing. and i also knew i had to include the j<3j and="and" because="because" cheesy="cheesy" cute="cute" doesn="doesn" envelope="envelope" it="it" love="love" on="on" s="s" strike="strike" super="super" t="t" that="that" the="the" us="us" who="who">i hope you're picking up on the touch of sarcasm.3j>
but all jokes and sarcasm aside, i am completely, utterly, oddly, and fully obsessed with these rehearsal invitations.
what do you think??
can you believe it's close to ONE month away?! ahhh!
john: i hope you're ready to become mr. kentuckyblonde. it is a lot of responsibility!
