I was very productive at work on Monday. Productive with wedding stuff, that is! I finished designing my stationery on VistaPrint.com. The Museum of Science requires us to get their approval on any documents being sent with their name on it, so I had to run them by the venue coordinator. She said they were perfect, so I also ran the program by the wedding party to make sure all the names were spelled right. Lucky I did, because I spelled my cousin’s new last name wrong (she’s officiating). Oops!
Here’s what everything looks like:
Invitations (front and back):
RSVP cards (front and back):
Programs (front and back):
I have a final count of 57 invitations, so I’m ordering 70 invites and RSVPs to be safe, and 100 programs. That will total about $130, including envelopes and address labels. Amazing! Just waiting to hear back from two people to confirm their names, and I’ll be ordering them.
I also emailed my ceremony to my cousin, along with a link to the Universal Life Church website where she can become ordained. I need to double check that it’s legal in Massachusetts. Anyone know? I also researched MA marriage laws and found the waiting period for marriage licenses, how long they’re good for, and when you need a doctor’s exam. I didn’t think they still required that, but we each need a doctor’s exam within 30 days…of the wedding itself or applying for the license, I forget. It seems very complicated.
One of my bridesmaids is impressed with my organization. I told her it was because I’ve been engaged for almost a year (May 7!) but then she reminded me she was engaged for three years before her wedding. Well, I guess when I’m passionate about something, I’m organized about it!
