I've mentioned how much I love all the printed items that go along with wedding planning. I realize some brides could care less for it and order their invitations online or use evites - but for me, stationery has been so enjoyable. from picking invitations at swoozie's, to ordering vintage wedding invitation stamps, and even making gift tags for bridesmaid proposals and shower hostess gifts. I have loved it all!
our engagement is winding down, not long to go until we tie the knot! my last opportunity to add some pizzazz to wedding-related snail mail was my bridal shower thank you notes. the shower was a bridal tea so I had to have the silver coffeepot stamp and I splurged a bit on the barbie with a hat stamp to pull it together.
I stopped at paper source and couldn't find any tea-themed thank notes, but I loved these and bought them before I found the vintage postage. luckily, the color scheme matched perfectly.
if there's one piece of advice I could offer for writing thank you notes, it's to buy an erasable ink pen. I found these pens in malaysia a few years ago and have been hooked ever since, now I order them on amazon and use them at work too. they have been a lifesaver for all my thank you writing.
