I’m starting to work out a system for addressing our wedding invitations. So far, I’ve only messed up 2 of the 5 I’ve addressed. I only ordered 20 extra envelopes, so this is not looking good…. I did change my system, a lot of the addresses in my list/printout had abbreviations on them (St. Dr. Cir, state names, etc.), I’ve now fixed all those and re printed the list.
My other problem has been with the embosser for stamping return addresses. It’s cast slightly crooked and if I try and stamp while sitting it doesn’t always have a clear print of the top line. No bueno.
And, just to obsesses a little more about the invitations, they came with tissue paper that I could place over the invites, but I’m only placing them over the response cards, to prevent the glue from the envelop getting stuck to the card when I mail them to ickystickyhot places on the East Coast, where they have problems like humidity (I am -so- glad to be back in Colorado).
Before I forget, I’m going to remind myself, here for you all to witness, that I need to use a pencil and lightly number the RSVP cards, just incase someone gets so excited to tell us that they’re coming, that they forget to tell us who they are.
Invitation to-do list:
- decide if we’re inciting our friend’s kids or not, and if we are, hire a babysitter
- get stamps for response envelopes
- have an assembled invitation weighed to find out what postage is needed
- look at postage options and buy the least ugly one
- stamp/emboss more return addresses (friends, you get the uglies, sorry)
- decide if I’m going to stamp inner envelopes w/ cute little motif
- number the backs of response cards with a pencil (number must coordinate to number on invite list)
- add the Obamas, the Ritters, the Udalls, Dr. Steven Chu and guest, and anyone else cool I can think of to help use up all those extra invitations (Ben’s secretly hoping Dr. Chu will come, since he’s friends with his PI)
