If you read my blog often, you know about my mixed opinion on weddings. I like them, but sometimes I think there is a bit too much crazyness surrounding them. One bit of crazyness in particular is the "bridal shower." Though I think they are great for some people, I definitely do not think they are my thing. I hate opening presents in front of people, particularly household items that I am not excited about at all. I am pretty bad at being massively fake and that is what it would require. Fortunately, my mom completely agrees. Therefore, Eric and I decided to do a great big engagement party instead (even though we got engaged like 9 months ago, oops). This way, people can have fun and not watch us open presents the whole time.
For some really dumb reason I decided to take on a big project for our invitations. I basically fell in love with these Save the Dates that Amber made, but decided that our Cape wedding would not be connected enough to the Red Sox theme. So instead we decided to recreate these for our engagement invites. They were a lot of work but they came out really cool. For those of you who saw our engagement pictures, you will now see why we took a bunch in Red Sox shirts :)
Even though I stole all of the ideas for this from Amber, who really has the coolest stuff EVER for her wedding- they were still extremely time consuming. My mom has all sorts of opinions on wedding invitations, so I'm hoping she can take them over completely since I have no opinions on them :) I really love how these invitations came out, but mostly I'm just pumped to cross something off my list!
