July 2012 Weddings

Got some checks done this weekend :)

We finished our invites.  Now we just have to go to the post office to hand cancel them ourselves so they don't get sent through the machine.  We are going to send them out the weekend of May 12th.

I tried on my wedding dress it is currently being stored at my moms until I have my first fitting in 2 weeks.  I have not tried it on since december it is too big I need them to take about an inch in on each side of me and some on my hips.  I have a lot of beading on my dress so I hope this is not an issue.

I also got my shoes finally and I love them I ended up going with these.  They are so cute and so comfortable and the perfect height. 




I also finished all of my bridal shower thank you cards.  I got them out in 2 weeks :)

  • Lots of checks! Congrats.

    Also - What's hand canceling the invitations? Can someone explain this to me? I don't want ours to get messed up in the machine, either!

    Normal mail goes through a machine at the post office when they sort it.  When it comes out it has big black lines over the stamp and on the front of the envelope.  If you had cancel them they give you a stamper thing that you use to do it yourself.  It just comes out neater and nicer then going through the machine.  Although it is not guaranteed to not go threw the machine.  My friend just did it for hers mine came to me fine however her moms had the black ink lines over the stamps.

  • congrats on your checks, and I LOVE Those shoes!!!

    I am reallllly glad you mentioned the hand cancelling. We are definitely going to do this as well!  Do you just take them into the post office and say " I want to hand cancel these" ?

    I think so!!  I have never done it before so not sure but I am pretty sure you just say that you want to hand cancel your wedding invites.  I would take another person along with you if you have a lot of them.

  • USPS sucks.  My cousin's FI just hand-canceled her invites and mine showed up inked multiple times from a sorting machine anyway.

    LOVEEEE those shoes, Carly!!!

    Also,  hand-canceling is required if you have any dots or dashes between the numbers of the zip codes in the addresses like the picture.  The machine cannot read the envelopes any they will get returned more than likely.
  • I loove your shoes Lady! And the rhinestone embellishment is really cute! Congrats :)
  • Love the shoes and congrats on the checks!!

  • I asked my post office about hand canceling and they said they had no time to do anything like that. They looked at me like I was crazy. Maybe I'll try another branch. 

    Great shoes, love the color!

  • I'm pretty sure I read that Connecticut doesn't allow hand cancelling on postage any more :(

    They say it takes up too much time, so I will have to have mine run through the machine
