I’m not sure how much I will blog about wedding preparations because, to tell you the truth, there is not much to arrange when you have your wedding at an all-inclusive resort in the Caribbean. So much of it is taken care of for you, and the Brit and I (after two weeks of stress while deciding on an island and a resort) have decided that we will do everything possible to make sure each day until The Big Day will be carefree.
One thing I knew I wanted to make a little special and spend some extra time on was asking my beautiful friends to be part of our big day. I’m not very artsy or crafty, so I turned to the internet to find fun cards to ask them to be bridesmaids. There are some great finds out there, but the card that caught my eye was simple, fun, and got straight to the point…
These cards by Jenuine Paper Company on Etsy were just what I was looking for. The owner, Jen, was so nice and accommodating since she is based in Los Angeles and I was asking to have them shipped to me in England.
The cards are a pale purple with gold writing and a gold envelope. The gold lettering and the envelope have a hint of shimmer to them. I think they were a hit with my bridesmaids!
I’m terrible though because I could barely wait for the cards to arrive to them in the mail, so I often found myself texting them (and with one of the girls, asking before I even sent the card!) to see if they had ‘got anything in the mail from me lately.’ Haha! I have ZERO patience when it comes to this sort of stuff.
I feel so blessed that all five of them said ‘yes’ (not only to being in the wedding, but to taking on the expense of attending a destination wedding) and I couldn’t be more thrilled to have them stand with me on that day in December!
