It's Official!

The invitations went out in the mail Monday morning and some people already got them yesterday! That means it's official. People know what time the wedding is and where it's at; I guess we can't run off to the JP anymore. haha

I don't recommend making your own invitations EVER! Eric is a graphic designer so we thought ok he can design them. Well I liked the pocket folder enclosures, so each invitation had 5 cards.
  • Invitation
  • RSVP card
  • Hotel card
  • Map card
  • A monogram
For whatever reason when we printed them on the laser jet printer, they didn't all line up the same on the paper. So that meant cutting each card by hand using a scrapbook cutter. Um with 123 invitations each with 5 cards that's over 600 cards to cut out. It took all last week, and I wasn't even working or studying. That's all I did last week.

So the invitation was mounted in the center and then the 3 cards were placed inside the pocket. Then I wrapped a ribbon around the outside and stuck the monogram on the ribbon. Very labor intensive, but I'm so pleased with how they turned out :)

Bridal Shower

My bridesmaids threw a bridal shower on Sunday for me. It was so much fun and such a wonderful day. Thank you so much to all of the friends and family that came to help celebrate our upcoming marriage. Here are a few pictures from the day. (Eric's mom took tons of pictures but I'm only putting up a few pics.) I didn't get any pictures with my two Moms :(

Wedding Update

I can't believe I've already been back in Texas for a full week! While I'm home, I've been getting a lot of wedding stuff done.

Last Wednesday my mom and I met with the DOC at the hotel where the reception will take place. We finalized all of the little details. YAY!!!

Then on Friday I had my bridal portraits taken. I can't wait to see the fabulous pictures that Jessica was able to get. I really do have an awesome photographer! I just love her style. Lets just say yellow field, dead grass, and run down ballpark with a bride in white! :)

This is after hair and make up by the fabulous Tiffany from Smokin Hot Make Up. Sorry about the quality it's from my phone haha.

I've also printed all of our wedding invitations. Eric designed the invitations for us, and I printed them out on a new laserjet printer that my Dad purchased just for this special project. Thanks Dad!!!!

Now I just have to cut them out including all of the little inserts, RSVP, Map, and Hotel cards. We have 130 invitations, but I'm hoping to get them all sent out this week. I'll post a picture once I get the invitation all put together.

Christmas Break!

Ok so this post is somewhat random but enjoy!

I am officially on Christmas break. WOOHOO!!!! I had my last final yesterday. I only have one more semester of sitting in a classroom listening to lectures for my life as a med student. I will start seeing patients in August. YAY!!!

On an exciting note. Eric flies in TONIGHT!!! I get to spend 23 days with him, and I'm so excited :) He has a JOB INTERVIEW on Monday that is looking really promising. It's not his ultimate job, but you know it's a job making money in Kansas City :) I will keep you posted on how it goes.

I get my wedding gown on Sunday! I took it in for alterations, and I'm so excited to see it all finished and the perfect size for me :)

We will be driving back to Dallas on Tuesday. YAY for an 8 hour drive :(

I hope all you blog readers enjoy your weekend. :)

I love my dress!!!

I picked up my dress today. I LOVE IT!!! OMG I can't believe I have my wedding dress :) It has to get altered some. It's too long and then it's a little big in the chest and the hips/butt but it fits a lot better than I thought it would. I'm taking it in Saturday for alterations. YAY!!!! I so wish I could post a picture, but I guess you'll just have to wait and see pictures from the wedding.

Only 79 days to go.
