Friggin’ Vellum

I found this video today and had to share it with the people who I knew would appreciate it best: you guys. First watch, then discuss.

I definitely had feelings of inadequacy when I received my first envelope-within-an-envelope invitation. I had never heard of inner and outer envelopes until then and thought it was just some sort of extra fancy wealth flaunting vessel. If you’re naive like me, read this informative Yahoo Answers post (oxymoron?) about what inner envelopes are for.

My own invitation suite was definitely more playful than fancy, which is the look I was going for, but I still feel a little “f*** me” every time I see an invitation with calligraphy, letterpress, or, dear God, vellum. So I can kind of feel this couple’s pain.

On the other hand, I tied 150 knots in order to make our invitations. I made homemade napkin rings. I did all kinds of over the top, pointless crap all in the name of making my wedding oh so special. So maybe my wedding made people go “holy f***ing balls, what is this, a candy buffet? Shit.” I kind of hope my wedding inspired obscenities from our guests, because I am serious about weddings. If you could see my face right now, you would not see me laughing. F***.

Also, we had an open bar, so I guess we’re pwning this game.

Has someone else’s wedding ever made you feel f***ing inadequate? Did you use vellum in your invitations?

    Haha that video is hilarious! It’s hard not to compare yourself to other brides-to-be, but I guess you just have to be happy with your decision and not everyone should have the same exact things. While some people spend a ton of time and money on their invitations, I chose to focus on making sure my guests would have a great time at the reception!! 😀
