The Invites

So a few people have posted comments after receiving our invite. We're very happy that you're all impressed with how it looks. And because I like bragging and because I think it's only fair for the whole internet to see our invite, I decided we should post the pictures and the invite to the internet.

Of course, I can't actually post the invite because it has names, places, times, etc. So I made this mockup that gives you a general idea of what our invite looks like. The wording in our invite was formal and nice. And the fonts weren't as huge, but you know... for internet readability... Also, I just noticed that it says "pleased to announce their marriage to the Internet." I don't mean that we're marrying the internet. I just mean that we're announcing our marriage to each other to the internet.

We included either one of these pictures in the invitations. Most people got the one where you can see our faces best.

You are the classiest gal I know. If I had a real copy of your invite, it would most definitely go in my file of 'good' invites. It might be the most excellent of invites, actually.

I still can't believe you created the stuff for your announcement. I'm very impressed.

Cute cute cute. Now, I realize that's quite the right word, but elegant elegant elegant doesn't have quite the same rhythm. Color me (and the internet) admiring.

Oh, those are fantastic!

Also, my eyes looked at the announcement before they read the paragraph, so for about 6 seconds I was really fascinated that by his last name.

You guys are excellent.

Wow. They are amazing. I really love the wallpaper in the picture and how it matches the background of the words. Kind of Victorian England-y. If that's a word.

The top picture reminds me of scenes from When Harry Met Sally, when all the couples are getting interviewed. ;)

Cicada,

Thank you so much for the lovely invite!!! If there was any way I could make it to the actual event I would be there in a heartbeat. I miss you and your family.

Top notch stuff.

p.s. I was extremely disappointed I didn't get the birthday invite invitation. Did you find out who has?
