So, step 2 is doing the invitations. We decided to do our own pictures, and create the invitations. How much more homeschooled is that? DJ and his girlfriend had a ball taking the pics, and then choosing which ones they liked best. Of course I had the last say. I let him pick one, and me pick one. We did them on card stock, instead of photo paper, because it was more affordable, and I am not real sure people keep them anyways. We ordered 40 invites, with envelopes, and it only cost 33 dollars with shipping. Since we are frugal, we will have a FB invite for family and friends who don't need, or want an actual invitation. That was also created, but no invites sent yet. DJ did his invites in his school colors, royal blue, and silver, the red is just the tablecloth on my dining room table. We put RSVP info on the back. Since our church is a huge part of our family, and where the ceremony will be, we will post one invite there, and it will be in the announcements. Easy peasy this step was.
Next step is to create a program for the ceremony. I will share that when it is done. Plus, I have his wooden box for cards, and money, that I need to draw his theme on and wood burn. Again, I hope that will be soon. I probably will order his cap and gown soon, just so I am sure to get it in time. We also have to book the pavilion at the springs, so there is no mad dash to get one.
