Did you ever have a year where you were constantly invited to weddings? This year, it was ridiculous how many weddings we were invited to. We ended up not going to any of them because they were either too far away or they gave us such short notice we couldn't make arrangements in time. Speaking of which, does no one understand wedding etiquette anymore or am I so old-school I'm not with the times? Here's some issues I've encountered in the past year. You let me know if I'm old-school or if this was in the bride/groom's error.
1) Not receiving a thank you card for a substantial cash gift. I did get a FB text message that simply said "Thanks".
2) Receiving a "Save The Date" less than one month before the wedding.
3) Having the wedding invitation simply be a photocopied response card and no formal wedding invitation at all. Perhaps they forgot to include the wedding invitation in the envelope?
4) Putting the grooms name ahead of the brides name on a formal wedding invitation. (That was the weirdest thing I've ever seen).
Those are just some of the strange wedding issues I've experienced the past year. Anyone got some of their own they'd like to share? This could be fun!
Anyway, onto my card. This is a card I made for the wedding of my husband's cousin. It was on the East Coast so we didn't go.
This card has a unique Z- fold. I got the instructions to make this card HERE. I have to admit, I didn't quite understand the instructions on how to construct the sentiment portion of the card, so I created my own. I just placed my sentiment panel on the bride portion of the card and I added some brads.
Karalyn used dies to create her bride and groom, but I used stickers!
Even though my supplies are different than the original card, the essence is very much the same. I stamped a script in white ink onto the blue card stock. My sentiments are from Inkadinkado.
It is hard to write a message inside this type of card, and also to insert a check. I didn't know the couple well so I just wrote "Congratulations" and our name and it was hidden by the bride and groom stickers. I put the check in the back of the card (so hopefully they saw it there. I don't know, I haven't received a "Thank You" card yet.).
Have a Great Day! Amy
