Invitation UPDATE!

Yay! I received my next batch of sample invitations, and the Groom and I had another invitation pow-wow.  Here's a picture of all of the samples we've ordered, and that are under consideration:

You may notice a theme - all contain some shade of purple, and a majority of them have a floral element (just like our Save the Date).  So we did narrow our decision down to one invitation in particular, which we both liked a lot - but we've decided we are going to head to our local Paper Source and see what options they have.  I'm assuming we'll be priced out of ordering them from a bricks and mortar store, but you know what they say about assuming! Plus, they must try and stay competitive with all of the online invitation companies, right?

In other news, we've received our very first WEDDING GIFT!! The Groom has a very small family (and he's an only child), and his single aunt will be unable to attend our wedding.  She has very generously given us a huge amount of frequent flyer miles - which pretty much means we can fly for free wherever we want for our honeymoon!! We're so excited, as this opens up our possible honeymoon destinations to just about ANYWHERE! We are seriously considering Australia and/or New Zealand, as we figure the cost (and travel time) to get there would always be our biggest impediments to getting to see those countries.  We're hoping to figure this out in the next month or two and get our honeymoon planned, but we are so thankful AND excited!!
