Amazing Wedding Planner Strikes Again: The Invitation of my Dreams, in my budget.....

After falling in love with several incredibly gorgeous invitation that were way out of the budget, I threw in the towel. Cried Uncle. Called the Goddess that is my Wedding Planner.

And of course, she had the solution.   She sent photos of the invitations I like to the fabulous Peggy at Erickson Design to see what she could come up with.  And boy, did Peggy nail it!!

I should have expected no less from someone who came up with these ideas:

I am so excited to see what the final product turns out to be.!!!

Oh yes she did.....crash the wedding

No, not

Yes we did.

Turns out, one of the bands we are interested in was playing a wedding within walking distance of our house. So being the lazy girl I am, I called my wedding planner to see if we could go take a listen.  Because driving to Schaumburg would just be too hard.
Of course, she did.

So, we dressed up and tried to look as inconspicuous as possible.

And learned Reason #637 to have a wedding planner:
The band did not start playing for over an hour past the scheduled time.  The temptation to wander over to the bar and grab a drink was strong, but I resisted.
Slow food service, and no one on hand to get things moving.  
The band was great, so it was such a waste!

And I think we have entertainment!

I found this hilarious idea on one of my favorite bridal Blogs, Off Beat Bride


Oh so tempting.
