Our invites are from which has been so affordable and easy to work with.
I can't get over how professional and gorgeous they are and for 50-ish invites, with reply cards, envelopes, it will be around $450 and I love them more than some letterpress we had seen. yay!

The jpeg of the invite has brown all around it, but it's simply mounted on brown stock paper and the woman who made it wanted to give us the feel for it. I'm still impressed with how well it's worked planning everything online with her.

Thought I was way too much of a control freak for that, but it's been fantastic. AND she sent proofs to New Zealand with no questions asked. Something I can assure you other vendors have not.

Florists : Flower Colors Green and White

I think I've finally come up with my color theme for my wedding...I think!
Brown, green and white.
I still may change my mind and opt to have more warm colored flowers since I'm having a fall wedding.
As of now I'm just collection lots of images to help with the decision making process.

Here's an album of some images I've collected online:

Caterer : Caterer Check!

I was looking for a caterer for a long time, and through a recommendation from a co-worker I found Monica Byrne.

When we met we just clicked. We have similar tastes and styles and sometimes it felt as if we were coming up with the same ideas at different times. :)

We only met once, but it felt like we knew each other longer. I got a really good vibe from that meeting. Plus talking to her via email has been great.

The bonus is that she's also a florist, and she'll be helping cater and decorate the wedding.

She owns a small bar Tini in Red Hook Brooklyn.

Go check it out!
