We got our rehearsal dinner invitations over Thanksgiving break!
Knock another thing off the to-do list. They are very nice and will look different enough from the wedding invitation, since we decided not to stick to a “theme” for all the mailings.
When my fiance, his mother, and I were looking around at invitations, I realized something:
With all the florals, ribbons, frosting, bows, lace, etc… how do ensure that there’s enough manliness in a wedding to acknowledge that AT LEAST one of the people getting married is not a 16 year-old girl?
The reason this came up is that his mother and I really liked several invitations that had very girly, flowery designs. She actually singled one out with giant pink flowers. The all-knowing stationer immediately said, “No” so that my fiance didn’t have to. When we came across our very non-girly rehearsal dinner invitations, he immediately stated, “I like those,” which I took to mean something since, in his normal life, he doesn’t comment on stationery at all.
Here are some pictures of invitations that seem a little too girly if you ask me:
This one has a bling-bling buckle! Like a bachelorette pilgrim!
This one has a pop-up wedding dress. Groom? What groom?
This one has a floral pattern that looks like an old lady’s couch!
