AW- Invites

I ordered the damn things, while talking to my mom and I only yelled at her twice.  

Wedding Paper Divas is having a sale which ends at midnight PST so we saved $80 and we're going to use the $50 gc to buy the rest of the RSVP cards.  We are having the overseas guest RSVP earlier so then we can invite more Americans without them knowing they are b-list.  Flame away.  
It's difficult when you have international guests since it's so expensive to travel etc.  Yet we still want to stick to out numbers/ budget.  

I'm not going to even see them until someone else gets theirs and shows it to me, how sad is that?

    Have your mom mail one to you!

    Honestly for overseas reasons... it makes sense to do it that way... no flames here! So glad that part is over for you (the ordering part)

    Sorry, forgot to add the pic.  I was so glad to have it done.  
    My mom doesn't like them for the record.  

    We changed the swirls to eggplant, no idea what it looks like IRL, it will be fine whatever it turns out to be it don't matter.

    She wanted something else and wanted to know why she didn't have a say.  ::Whine::

    Are you kidding me?

    Same woman had a fight with her mom over having a chocolate wedding cake.  

    She also changed her wedding from Oct to Jan so her brother could come and regrets it to this day.  This did not stop her from trying to convince me to have my wedding in Oct b/c she loves Oct weddings.  I told her it would the same thing that happened to her.  Insane.

    HA, its like, it is not your wedding!  So crazy. I hope all goes smoothly from here on out.

    My mom had something stupid to ask me today, why I was not doing the garter toss... um cuz there are like no single men at the wedding, should I just have Mik take the garter (that I am not even wearing!) off me and just put it in his pocket?!  This was th only crazy thing she has said to me.

    Yay for invites! Love it, very classic and clean looking.

    Glad you stood up to your mom.  Moms are tough.....

    I would do the same thing with the RSVPs, I think you're just protecting yourself and your headcount.

    I never understand why people flame about b listing.  We've all done it. 

    Anywho, they look great and CONGRATS on not killing your mom. :)

    I have to say that after a looooong time of NCV posting calm, level-headed OPs and responses, I find it really funny to see the annoyed side come out.  It makes me feel normal :) 

    I like the invites!  Very clean, simple and elegant.

    I had a B list, and definitely don't flame others for it..... assuming that people don't send a real invitation a week before the wedding.  EIther invite them early enough that they don't know they're B list, or tell them outright like, "hey, I have some extra room at my wedding, and we would love if you could come!". - not directed at you NCV, just my thoughts in general.

    I know I've been on the b-list, just figured it out, I went to the wedding and had a blast! 

    I have people in mind to fill spaces later on, mostly my sibs friends and people who understand.  I will tell them outright someone can't make it we would love it if you could come etc.
