Swoon-Worthy Stationery

I can't believe it's already time to start thinking about invitations! When Dan and I got engaged {last February}, our 17 month engagement felt like an eternity. It is crazy to think that we are now merely 5 short months away from becoming husband and wife! Invitations are one of those places that I feel okay cutting costs. In all honesty, people will eventually just throw them in the garbage. Still, I love all things pretty and I am convinced that I can find something beautiful without breaking the bank. As with all of my other decisions, there are a couple of directions I am toying with.

And of course, the more traditional option...

I've also been thinking a lot about programs for the ceremony. I know they are not necessary, but I always think its nice for your guests to have something to flip through while they wait.
