I’ve attended a lot of weddings. I’ve been a participant in several weddings. I remember beautiful weddings, great receptions with good music, good drinks and good food. Just as I can remember bad music, bad food and bad wedding guest behavior resulting from the great reception with good music, good drinks and good food – mostly because of the drinks, I digress, but what I don’t recall about any wedding that I have attended, been invited to or been part of is the couple’s wedding invitations.

Howdy! My apologies for being a little MIA but life has me pulled in upteen directions as of late. I’m blessed to be so busy but I cannot continue as I was and have learned to ask for help (thanks Mom!) as I work on improving my time-management (thanks Mr. TK!).

Recently a Triple B reader in Atlanta (a groom-to-be) expressed an interest in receiving more scoop on wedding invitation designs. I was eager to help the brother out, especially because I have adored stationery since I was an itty bitty girl. Plus it warms my heart to witness a man happily involved in the planning of his nuptials. So Arthur in ATL, I hope this makes life for you and the soon-to-be Mrs. a little less stressful.
