Here they are! The final, printed and addressed invitations. The addressing went much faster this time around because I wasnt' scrambling for addresses. I'm not as thrilled with the outer envelope calligraphy, but I'm pretty sure that some of the Save the Dates didn't get where they were supposed to because of my crazy calligraphy.
The inner envelope names, however, I was ENTHRALLED with. I went the informal route, used first names, and covered a lot of real estate with my gouache and split nib writing. That 3 hour calligraphy class I took in college was totally worth it. Not that I used a real official alphabet, but it's the style that counts.
The invitations were the one part of the wedding I felt like I could go OCD about and not impose my craziness on others. I did them exactly how I wanted them. And I wouldn't change anything about them!
One of my crazy friends said: "Yee haw. It's like a hoe down!" To which I said "That's right B*tch! I will hoe you down here in a minute."
Hoe down my ass. Sorry. That's just rude.
