At last! After gathering a sample of pretty much every shade of burgundy card available in London, I've finally found exactly the right one! Yes, I will admit that I've been on a bit of a mission, and yes, perhaps I've been a bit more rigourous than maybe I needed to be, but I am a perfectionist at heart, and I really had to find the right shade of burgundy card, to match the burgundy mulberry paper and the burgundy ribbon.
Of course, none of these burgundies are going to match exactly the colour of my dress, but you can't win 'em all. At least they will match each other, and it's not like anyone's going to bring the invitation to the wedding to double check. (Although this is the level of obsessive detail that I naturally think in… *winces*.)
I also managed to get the perfect shade of thin ivory card from the same place – Cass Art London, in Islington. Wow, what a fabulous shop! Three floors of art supplies and stationery. Heaven! It was pretty much all I could do to stop myself blowing a hideous amount of money on unnecessary note books, paper samples and art supplies.
I've also ordered all my other stationery requirements from WeddingsDIY, although they've run out of ivory mulberry paper, which is going to put a crimp on sending the invitations out. We're only doing the invitations to those living abroad at this juncture – usually you don't send them out this early but people have to book flights and stuff.
(I just had to double check with Kevin as to whether I am sad blogging this, but he says not. I think he's just being kind. But, well, brace yourself. There's a lot more where this came from.)
