At first the bride wanted a nice wedding without flowers. They went with the "journey" theme. Starting out on the great adventure that is marriage. They decided on a 1940's look to the event, so a train theme emerged. So the invitations were tickets one for the wedding and the other for the reception. They were designed by my niece and my sister bought lovely purple folders to send them in. That took several days to finish up mostly because of the lack of time for the ceremony. We worked all weekend putting the invitations together. Many thanks to everyone for their hard work. The total for the invitations including the postage was less than a dollar each. About 200 were mailed.
At this point we had less than three week to pull a wedding together! I was really worried that no one would come because of the late invitations and the bride's cousin was getting married the day before. Keep reading the blog to see if we survived!
