I have to admit I did a bit of duty-free shopping in Vancouver at the MAC counter, and I was silly enough to buy my third MAC eyeshadow in Charcoal Brown just to realize at home that Annabelle's So Foxy is an exact dupe. So I gave the MAC to my mum, I don't think she was very grateful for the gift, and commented it by criticizing my make-up for the day. Ouch! On a positive side, I also got a lippie in Jest, and I really like it. I'm also after nailcare stuff and polishes lately, so expect some haulage :)
Today I went with my to-be-mother-in-law to a printing house to choose and order my wedding invitations. I had to choose from what they had because there's no time left for being overly picky. However, I really liked their catalogues and finally settled on a very classic, simple design:
The set doesn't include the organza and pearls :)
The paper is in a cream color with an opalescent gold effect, and the invitation folds in three parts. Because of that, we decided to include a quotation on the top part, and we went for Antoine de Saint Exupery: "Love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction.". We will handwrite the guests' names on our own, because it was substantially more expensive to have them printed, and I think it adds a bit of a personal touch. The print itself is warm brown and quite ornamental.
I really like the gold ornament, it's so elegant and timeless...
I think we did a pretty good job :) Next on the list are the flowers, sorting things out in the church and at the venue, and many more... Hope you're all doing well and thanks for stopping by! xxx
