I’m one day back from New York and my schedule is practically non-stop since I leave in two days for Palm Springs. The first time Dean and I went to checkout wedding venues, we fell adoringly in love with the town. I can’t wait for our wedding guests to experience the hot weather, a true feeling of a relaxed vacation, and old Hollywood glamour. Our wedding is going to rock.
The latest development is the invitation. After gathering referrals and reviewing their web sites (anyone without one was automatically out of the running), I settled on someone in NYC which went against my criteria for someone local. My graphic designer Taylor was a referral from my friend Carey who thought we would just click. Well we did! Taylor is extremely responsive (I LOVE THAT!), totally professional (not one misspelling or grammatical error in any of her emails, and executed my vision perfectly. I cannot wait to mail these bad-ass invitations! I also want to point out that when I found out her age, my mouth literally dropped to the floor. I think Carey told me she was 23. I can’t remember whether it’s 22 or 23. Either way, I was so shocked because Taylor is so professional. I thought I was working with someone who had been in the business for a decade. So keep that in mind when you see these things. They were designed by a baby!
I decided on an early RSVP date of April 30th even though the wedding is on June 12th. I know that’s atypical, but here’s how I see it. If you’re planning on coming to my wedding, I would hope you would know by April 30th. In fact, I would hope you’d know right now. Besides, guests need to lock in their flights, hotels, and travel plans. An earlier RSVP dates ensures that you do that. So I’m hoping people don’t wait. Send back those RSVP cards as soon as you get them. Because, be honest with me. You know whether or not you’re going to my wedding. If you’re on the fence, then just say no!
