Invitation diaster! (warning, venting ahead)

Okay so I've been working on calligraphy as a hobby for a few months now and spent the entire time penning many many versions of our invites. I wanted to do our invitations and then take them to be copied and printed... okay so I finally came up with a PERFECT version but didn't have time to print them before a cross-country move. I unpacked the perfect version today and somehow it got ruined in transit! I think something reacted with the ink! Its not water because its waterproof ink... who knows!


Ahhh anyways I need to send invitations out next week basically, maybe the week after is pushing it. I just ordered some online, they said they are supposed to ship out 3 days after computer receives the order (today) and then it takes 3 days to ship... six days in total. Hopefully they are right on this one, I've read mixed reviews about how fast they are. I'm so anxious plus my horse is supposed to be shipped through a hurricane today... another long long story. Never ever move when you are wedding planning or when there is a hurricane! I feel like mishaps such as this are the story of my wedding planning existence!


I need a break from this, I'm off to the pool. ;)

Sorry to hear that! I am thinking good thoughts for your horse! They are tough animals and this means he will be super happy to see you! What type of horse do you have? I think the invites will be fine, you can write out the addresses in your pretty calligraphy!

Where did you order the invited from? We did ours through My Gastby and it took about 2 weeks because I am notroious for not checking my email so the proof was sitting there for a couple of days!
