Invitations and Tasting @ Normandy

After receiving quite a few invitation samples in the mail, I realized that I was just going to have to make them myself. I was having a hard time finding the exact colors and I wasn't really falling in love with anything I had seen. I know I said I wouldn't do this, but I'm hoping that if I start early enough, it won't be that big of a chore and I can stretch it out over a few months. I tried to keep them pretty simple to minimize the work involved. Here's what they're going to look like (aside from a few edits):

One of the edits I'm going to make is to take out my dad's middle initial- it looks weird. Also, there seems to be a big stink about when the "evening" begins. Technically, it looks like it is 6pm, although- I've found many sources that say that it's not uncommon these days for 5pm to be considered "evening" on an invite. Who knows... does anyone have an opinion on this? I really don't feel like changing it, but if it's really that big of a deal, I guess I could.

I'm getting really excited for the tasting at Normandy this weekend. We'll get to try lots of food and drinks and I think they show us some options for decorations as well. We're going up to my parents on Saturday night and then me, Scott, my mom, and my dad are all going together on Sunday. I'll definitely post about it when we get back.

i just looked on a couple of sites too and they all said that they used evening when referring to their 5 o'clock ceremonies. i would think 5 would be a good cut off to the afternoon. cute invites! i can't believe you're making your own. that's awesome. they look great. if you need any help assembling let me know!
