Rehearsal Dinner Invitation

I am back from my 5 week "sabbatical" at the beach. I left here on January 31 and returned on March 6. I rented a house in Laguna Beach, FL, took the dog down and enjoyed being away from the terrible weather in Atlanta during that time. We saw beautiful sunsets like this:
 We hiked miles and miles and miles at several fabulous parks.

 We saw some cool birds like this huge egret:
and some turkey buzzards as we call 'em in the northerners might call 'em vultures:

I drank wine on the beach (in a plastic cup):
Life was and is very, very good, isn't it?

But back to reality.  And my reality is that my son is getting married in about 7 weeks!  So it is time to get going a bit more on the rehearsal dinner. 

Here is the invitation (or one of the zillions of versions) that I have created and once I have a few more details finalized will get printed by Costco.  I saw an invitation online and definitely stole used it for inspiration.  It was a great starting off point for my version. 

Sorry but I had to blur out the details because even though I love you all I don't want you showing up! LOL!

What do you think?  Any changes?  Not sure about the background...I'm still playing around with that a bit.

Happy Crafting!


  1. Like the font of 'rehearsal dinner. Not sure about the lower case lettering of name, mr, mrs, date but lower case lettering with font used for rehearsal dinner is wonderful looking.

    1. Thanks for the comment but I really like the lower case type and am not changing that.

  2. Fun post!! Looove your photos! It looks like you had a great "sabbatical"! Awesome idea!!
    Love the invitation!! The black looks good on the kraft background!

  3. I love all the fonts, I think it looks perfect. Do they like the background or are you going with an "I don't care what they think?" LOL I like it though and the weather in FL looked beautiful and like you had a wonderful time.

  4. I enjoyed seeing it all again - the beautiful photos from Florida and the lovely invitation! =)


Thank you so much for leaving a comment. I appreciate the time it took you to leave me a note and I will enjoy reading it. Happy Crafting!
