I seem to be collecting free samples of wedding invitations.
On the advice of my good friend Stephanie, I requested free samples from a variety of companies — Ann’s Bridal Bargains, Wedding Paper Divas and Invitations by Dawn. Several other companies offer them as well and it’s a good way to check out some of your options and the wide variety of prices and deals out there.
Gray has a clear preference for anything that screams beach wedding. We’re getting married in a coastal area, but we’re not 100 percent sure if it will actually be at the beach or somewhere in one of the beach towns in the area where he grew up.
I personally want to go with the option that is both the cheapest and nicest. A Groupon will be utilized to save money on the Save-The-Dates.
For both Gray and me, the reception is our highest priority money wise. Things that I don’t feel too strongly about include the invitations, flowers and even the cake.
I’m more concerned about our cookie table.
