My Wedding invites

I thought that I would show off my wedding invites which I sent out to all my guests in March. I decided to save some money here by making my own invites as I love doing crafty activities (handy when working with children). I only needed to buy blue mint coloured card bought cheap online, a fancy border puncher (£2 in local 'Range' store, glue and envelopes.)


I used my mad IT skills to put together the text for the invites and images to make it look pretty. The information I made sure I included was; the wedding theme name (Love birds that were mint to be), date of wedding, addresses of reception and ceremony, time of the ceremony and reception and lastly the RSVP card with a little envelope. Some of the guests were only invited to the reception, whereas, the others were invited to the ceremony followed by reception so I had two sets of invitations.

Wedding make-up trial

80 days and 15 hours until our big day!!
Today, I had my make-up trial for the wedding and was very excited but nervous as I do not wear makeup normally. Luckily the makeup artist I had was very lovely and understood that I wasn't used to make-up, so she used subtle, natural colours. She contoured my cheeks perfectly on only half my cheek bones as I did not want colour on my cheeks as my cheeks go red easily (so I didn't want to add more to emphasis the colour in my cheeks). In the past I have had blepharitis and have a scar from when I had treatment on my eye lid, which I am greatly self conscious about, my make-up artist soon made this non-existent. As many of my flaws were covered up I feel more confident that I will look like a beautiful, blushing bride. All my worries of being in front of all our friends and family have gone away.
