There are quite a few perks to having a small, intimate wedding, in my opinion... Other than the obvious reason of being able to spend quality time with the people you know and love the most, instead of schmoozing with people you only sorta kinda know, and being too busy to notice all of the details of the day, or not being able to spend quality moments together with your new hubby! Ugggh, shame! But, one of my favorite parts about having a smaller, more intimate wedding are things like being able to make personal touches... because hand making 65 wedding invitations is a whole lot easier than hand making 250!
Can I get an AMEN?!
Lucky for me, my guest list capped out at 63, most of whom are couples or families, which left me with the attainable goal of hand making 36 invitations! Easy, peasy, right?! Well, do you know how hard it is to do any sort of projects with a cat who constantly wants to help? I'm sure all you moms with toddlers get where I'm coming from!
This left me with one option, to make all 36 invitation during my afternoon free time at work. Lucky for me, this is my 4th year teaching in Korea, so I don't need all afternoon to plan for classes! Oh yes! I'm not sure how many days, or hours it took to make these little treasures, but I'd do it all over again if I had to! (Well, not for a couple years though!) I'm such a sucker for hand made wedding invitations!
I love their fun, flirty, colorful, and personal feel, and hope that our big day is all those things!
