Our Wedding Invitations

So, I have finally sent the invitations out. I didn't want to spoil the fun by posting photos of them before our guests received them in the mail, but now I can show them to you all! I have to say I'm very happy with how they turned out.

Being a web designer, most of the time, I rarely get to have my work printed on actual paper. The paper I chose was a super duper soft, beautiful paper (Somerset Soft White 300 gm Velvet for you other paper nerds out there!). It feels like soft cotton sheets. Yum!! I wanted to keep our design classic and simple. I really am happy with it and it was the first design I came up with! I love when that happens :)

Cool zipper bracelets

I just got these adorable zipper bracelets from "The Hippy Chick Sews" shop on They are so cute worn in groupings. I ordered two brown zippers and one navy. I love brown and navy together, but she offers a lot of colors. They came in the mail to me super quickly, too! Such a fun thing for a Friday afternoon :) Now I will look quite hip for the busy weekend we have planned.
