Who knew Ethel Merman did needlepoint? I hope this wasn't taken out of context.
Today the bridesmatrons and junior bridesmaid accompanied Sissy to find invitations. Let me tell you how frackin' indecisive she has been about this. I think she's been too worried about the "invitation setting the tone."
Initially she wanted something "destination" and "beachy."
So I went through a million things online and came up with:
- sand dollar invitation
- scallop invitation
- etsy seaside invite
- a more traditional with sand dollar
- coral invite, my favorite
She was leaning toward the coral, but Jersey didn't think it looked like coral.
Today we went back to Papyrus. (We went in New York because it was around the corner from Kleinfeld's.) At any rate, after going through nearly every wedding invitation book at Papyrus (again), including Vera Wang, Martha Stewart, and kate spade (the three most likely, I thought), she chose a pearlized ecru card layered with a pearlized navy cardstock that has a gold ribbon (flat, not tied). It has their initials above the ribbon, and the text is right justified below. Let me tell you how much this is the opposite of everything she described to us. It only took two hours.
I need a nap.
