DIY Wedding Invitations

So today I have done a whole lot with the wedding.  We wrote out each individual address by hand on each envelope awhile ago. Stuffed each envelope with the appropriate things last night.  We stuff things like where to find the hotel we recommend and where we are registers, blah blah blah. Bought stamps today and put them on a completed invitation and the multiples I had after that but I had to get the right postage or it would have been kicked back and that would have been terrible. I never knew that until I went into the postal building and asked for stamps the first time. They told me that I needed a finalized invitation which I didn’t have and give it to them and they needed to weigh it and the size demensions, etc. Last night when we were stuffing the envelopes we came across two invitations that had no inserts, I was so frustrated. However, the printing company that I drove to today just printed them out FREE of charge because they were missing. Thank you! I feel like this invitation has been laying around the house forever. We just needed to print some papers and we don’t have a computer and/or printer at our home and I did’t feel comfortable doing it at the library so we had to ask a friend to do it. Otherwise we would have had it done at a printer with our invitations or a FedEx facility.  Thank you to that friend, you made this easier and it was quite fun doing it too.  So they were done, YAY! and I put the appropriate stamps on them to be put out in the mail. I feel like a whole weight has been lifted off my shoulders. On to the next wedding thing, Yippee! One thing down and next on the list.

Freaking Out! Wedding Planning…

Throughout our whole wedding planning process I have been at my wit’s end and it has been horrible. If I were to ever plan a wedding ever again, I would want to SPEND THE MONEY AND GET A WEDDING PLANNER. However, I would want to still be apart of all the decision making in everything.  Would I do get the wedding planner would be a different question though. I feel that throughout this whole thing that Ian is being a good sport and is taking my stress level as nothing. He is an awesome being.

Ian is awesome. I tell him to drive safely each day when he goes to work and I also tell him that I love him each day. He is my soul mate and I am so thankful that I have him in my life.

Sometimes my paranoia comes out and I am afraid that he will leave me but that soon subsides to what it is, paranoia. But we have been together since October 2010 and nothing has torn us apart.

  • Getting to know each other

( When he opens up to me I love it. We speak freely and we have great conversations. It has brought us closer too.)

  • Family

(His family and my family are great. The only thing that I wish that his family could respect his wishes and call him by his LEGAL name Ian, not by his old name.  Other than that family outings, dinners, and sometimes we just get together just to hang out.)

  • Friends

(All our friends are awesome :))

  • Work

(Ian is working 1 job and is looking for a 2nd.)

  • Money

(Money is tight.)

  • Time-Management
  • Losing Loved Ones
  • Ex-Relationships
  • Etc

I just needed someone other than a friend, who more likely than not will go back to Ian and let him know we talked to just pretty much vent to, even if it is a computer screen. A computer screen that publishes to the world. The world that pretty much skims over this entire thing I just thought about.  In despite of all of that it is better than going off on Ian for something he didn’t do and/or chewing herbal de-stressing gum.

Thanks for reading. Comment please.
