The long weekend = invitations and getting the Boy to help because measurements and numbers were involved hehe.

I'm dedicating today to mail merge and trying to incorporate our logo as well so the envelopes don't look so boring. My Mum suggested using pea green envelopes to tie in with the theme but the Boy didn't like that. I did but factoring in cost and I immediately decided people could have boring old white ones!

I've managed to put a little pocket on the back of the invites to house our gift registry card along with a little card (which I still have to make) advising people who don't have access to the net, who to contact so they can RSVP. Thankfully most of my family, even the oldies, are really net savvy so I'm hoping they'll enjoy our little 'wedsite'.

But boy oh boy is this a time consuming task! I meant to have the invites out last week and then my aim changed to having them in the mail today...I don't think they'll go out until Wednesday but in that case thank god for save the date cards!

Mass apologies for not posting lots recently. Things have been INSANE to say the least. We moved in with the Boy's parents and then after getting semi-settled we had to come and house-sit for my Mum...grrr I can't wait until things get a little bit more normal!

It's getting a little bit scary now as things start to pick up speed. I've booked in my hair trial and the trial for my MoH May 15th. But the biggest thing is trying to get out the invites, everything has finally been sorted but measuring the paper is what I'm leaving up to the Boy. I'm also feeling a little bit under appreciated when it comes to the Boy. I don't think he realises how much I'm actually doing for the wedding!

So much for not stressing, I'm in full on stress out mode :( I still haven't formed a list with when everything needs to be done and what's planned for when. Crazy since I'm usually super organised but not living in my own home and working full time plus getting sick isn't helping. Plus we just found out that our photographer who is a friend of the family (has finished photography at Tafe though) and our wedding will be her first is charging us $ people think this is reasonable? I was thinking $500 but that probably is a way too cheap. Just another thing to go cucukoo over! (Sorry this post is pretty disjointed just need to blurt it all out!)

With a ring on the end of his nose

Guess what arrived in the mail today...

PIGGYWIG! Our version of a ring pillow.

We will need to tie a bit of ribbon through his nose for the rings but I'm so happy with it. Neither of us want the OTT traditional wedding but we also don't want to go too crazy. I could feel myself heading down that path as I tried to find an owl and a cat as well for the other boys. But I keep reminding myself less is definitely more.

It fits in perfectly with our invitations designed by the wonderful, patient and oh so talented bride-to-be behind Getting Hitched (you're missing out if you haven't read her blog!).

She has designed us a logo and beautiful invitations. I'll post the logo up but will wait on the inivitations because I don't want to blur anything out. They can be an after the wedding post :)

Isn't the logo awesome?! Both the boy and I are so happy with it and I can't speak highly enough of our graphic designer. Sometimes you really have to love the internet! Without both of us reading each other's blogs this never would have happened.

Oh and I guess I should point out the obvious...our invites are themed to the owl and the pussycat and are very similar to the invitation I posted awhile ago.

We've passed the 90 day mark as well, according to my countdown timer there's now 87 days to go. I'm not scared though because I've got all my bases covered at this point (I should mention I'm touching wood as I type this!). I know I won't always be so stress free so I'm enjoying it while it lasts.
