I guess weddings must be a bigger deal in the States.
 I have never heard of a wedding shower.

The Bon:   I wouldn't want to eliminate invites and go totally digital. I am interested in the idea of being able to give more information to those who want it, via the website. IE: things to do in the area, different options of hotels, more detailed maps, etc. I like the idea of having a really uncluttered artistic invite, and have all the details and nitty gritty on an easy to access website. That seems ideal to me. But, like (ruby_soho) mentioned, some of our older relatives or non-tech savvy invitees might have a problem gleening the important info.

ruby_soho: I agree that it is easier for people of all tech-knowledge to receive paper invites. As to the "classy" aspect, I sort of think being more "green" and wasting less paper is classy. But, that's just my perspective. I know alot of people who look at a website for wedding info will probably just print out the maps on paper too. It is a conundrum. I am constantly going back in forth between three things while planning my wedding; tradition, artistic vision and eco-friendly-ness.

Summerlyn: What country do you live in? I guess we they are prevalent here in the States as a way of preparing the bride's home for marriage. Replacing dowries and the like.


Alright, enough of my babbling. I have been working on save the date's for our second reception (which is in Michigan with my fiancee's family/friends) - and my eyes were starting to glaze over! Back to work!  Smiley

i think using the website as an enhancement tool is a good idea, though - for stuff to do in the area, and as a place to link to local businesses, etc.  i plan to do something like this with my future wedding site  Cheesy

Exactly what I said. Smiley

In personal wedding crafty news, my invites went to the printer today! I'm so excited after realizing yesterday that I needed to find a new shade of brown for the invites! I spent at least 2 hours at work [my boss said it was ok!] pouring over the Pantone Swatch book for the right brown. I should have the proofs on Sunday, then it's just a matter of waiting for them to be printed, a little bit of assembly, stamps, and whatnot and they go out!

I've still got a ton of stuff to do, and Friday is 3 months until the wedding. [I'm going by the 23rd of the month, whether it falls on a Saturday or not]. Other things on the list:
  • Attach magnets into 1" button shells
  • Finish marking and cutting slits into guest book pages for polaroids
  • Send centerpiece napkins through another dye bath
  • Iron-on transfers for centerpiece napkins
  • Attach completed magnets to card as favors
  • Finish knitting [and block] shawl
  • Finish gathering bits for the centerpieces
  • many many other things, both crafty and non-crafty!

Yeah, I was agreeing with your assessment. Elaborating on my perspective. Maybe that came across as snarky? I don't know.

Good luck with your projects. I am about 108 days away. Starting to bite my nails a bit. I think I need to devote one day this week to NOT working on the wedding. That might help my sanity a bit.

It's amazing how much time it sucks up, isn't it? I just spent 3 hours looking for favor boxes that were acceptable to me. Did finally settle on some very very simple ones, but now I also need to buy paper, an ink pad, and plastic baggies for candy. It just keeps growing!

that's a great centerpiece! I was thinking of incorporating coffee beans in our centerpieces, and I definitely like how it looks! Thanks halblingefrau for showing me how nice it looks!
