We stopped at Walmart after class to pick up some printer ink, and since we were there, I wanted to price card stock and other items to get an idea of costs. While we were wandering around, we ended up in the wedding supply aisle. Lo and behold, there are invitations that are in our color scheme AND decorated with our main flower. (Black and white, and cherry blossoms). -Side note: we decided the wedding will have a slightly Japanese feel to it. Probably not blatantly obvious to the guests, but it will be there. They were also on sale. Did I mention that? ON SALE!! They are selling for $19, and we got them at $14 per 50 pack box. The link is directly under the picture as a caption (Walmart). The other links (to the tutorials) are posted under the picture.

I hope this has been as exciting for you as it is for me! Of course, this is one of the better examples of how we put the cart before the horse. We are planning before engagement, buying invites before we buy the shower invites or Save the Dates (or even HAVING a date, for that matter). We are on our way to ass-backwards wedding bliss. And I'm going to have a damn good time doing it, too!
