Mmmm, stationery!

by Suw on April 15, 2007

It's amazing how much of the stuff that needs to be organised for this wedding hinges on one thing – the dress. Whilst I still haven't entirely solved the dress problem yet, the shape and form of that problem is resolving in my mind, along with little fragments of the answer. I now know, for example, the colour scheme… Or at least, I think I know. I suppose I might still change my mind.
This makes it easier to start thinking about stuff like stationery and table dressing. Last night I spent a happy few hours looking at a DIY wedding stationery site that I was told about by a colleague of a friend at Nature after I mentioned my wedding in passing at the end of a meeting. He produced a business card from his pocket and mentioned that one of his family members runs it – and it's a neat little site. (URL to come when I'm on a real computer. I'm writing this on my phone.)
I had so much fun looking at the different styles of invitation – some of them are really lovely, and it'll be fun to print them out and put them together ourselves.
Then Kate pointed me to a site that does candles, so that provided another happy diversion as I thought about how to make the tables all look pretty. Then there's organza bags and sugared almonds for the favours. So much to look at!
I have to admit, right now I feel more excited about the stationery than I do about the dress. But then, I've always had a thing for stationery, and dresses have always left me cold. Maybe it's just a geek thing.

Oh Suw why did you have to put that sweet link up? I've just seen licorice tablets and lots of other lovely things, so tempting!
