In the craziness of the move, I had to get one very important wedding-related task completed: mailing out our wedding invites! I ended up using Minted, the same site I used to design our Save the Date photos.
I wanted something that was rustic but had a romantic touch, and found these. I thought they were perfect for the vision we were going for, and what is so great about Minted is that once you personalize your invite on their website, they have a designer perfect it, and then send you a proof to approve. So the designer was able to change some little touches (like some of the font) which was awesome. We went with the matching RSVP cards, but did some custom design when it came to the color so that they would match better– I loved the idea of doing them in a blush pink to match our wedding colors!
Well, a lot has happened since I last updated this, so I really have some catching up to do!
First of all, yesterday marked two months until our wedding day, so we are officially on the countdown now! We spent the day doing one very important wedding-related task: picking out my wedding band! We just sent out our invites about a week ago, and have already gotten some RSVP’s returned back to us, which is exciting. I will share our invites in another post because I am so in love with how they came out!
The other big change since I have last blogged (and it’s a BIG one!) is that Sheraz and I have moved to a new apartment!
We are still on the Upper East Side, but we actually moved south 14 blocks, into a place that is 1388357504684545 times better than the crappy little apartment we were in. Let’s just say we seriously upgraded and it was REALLY needed. I can’t say that we have more space in the new place, but we have better utilized space, and NEW space. Our building is brand new, and it is a dreeeeam coming from a place where there were roaches, things never got fixed, and the appliances were so old they had to be considered a safety hazard.
