Well I attempted to address the invites this weekend...and lets just say, I got half way through! I thought that was a personal victory! Well I was doing that I completely forgot all of the other things that come along with the invites...I forgot about return address labels. Thankfully I found a site and designed and ordered 250 of them for 4 bucks! They should be here in a week, so yep, I managed to get myself another week before I absolutely have to finish the invites. Let's see, I also didn't realize the etiquette that goes along with it. I must have made three or four phone calls that night between my parents and my future in laws. All with ridiculous questions...so if she is divorced but still kept her last name is she a Miss, Ms, or Mrs.? At what point do I replace "and guest" with the name of the person they are dating...what if they have only been together for two weeks? If I know they aren't dating anyone and won't be bringing a guest, do I still address to and guest?
And don't bother trying to get the answers on the internet. The internet creates even more questions! Their are basically two ways of doing it- old school traditional, or modern. Somebody will most likely be offended either way-its a no win situation :) Then I realized this morning, oh boy, I think I am supposed to put directions in, but does that just turn into clutter? With almost everyone have a computer or gps, does anyone even pay attention to those maps? To be honest with you, even when they send me directions I still choose to google it anyways. For some reason I don't find the directions accurate if they simply state if coming from Green Bay. It is like I need them to personally put my address and mapquest if for me before I would trust those directions, which we all know is ridiculous!
So I will continue to slowly but surely make progress on these invites- and hey if you got anything to motivate me let me know...because I guess 53 days isn't enough motivation!
