So half of my bridal party was in the nightmare dress and the other was in a strapless black dress. Odd – I know.

I love stationary. It’s odd, I know, but I do. Maybe it’s the different designs or the fact that you’re sending something to someone’s mailbox that’s not a bill.
So I thought picking out invitations for our wedding would be fun and it is until I see the price. Ugh the prices. If I had the time/patience I would have DIY invites but I don’t have the time or the patience.
I will say I have seen several cool designs...to bad they cost a small fortune.

As I’ve visited various invitations stores and flipped through their gigantic books, the “within-the-ribbon” card kept popping up.
Since I had no clue what “Within-the-ribbon?” meant, I searched Crane's
Within-the-Ribbon Cards: Pews may be cordoned off with white ribbons or cords to indicate a special seating section. When this is done, small cards reading "Within-the-ribbon" are sent with the invitations to those guests who will be seated in that section. The guests then bring the cards to the ceremony, which enables the ushers to seat them in the appropriate section.
Who knew? Have you ever received a “within-the-ribbon” card?

I went to one of my favorite party stores today - Berbank and Co. The owner is a hoot and full of energy.
We discussed a few options for tables, bar and ceremony. Right now I thinking candelabras for the tables with a small amount of flowers.
There's something about candlelight that makes me think of romance....
