pretty paper

our wedding is in 72 days.  isn't that crazy?!  although we have pretty much finalized everything, there are still lots of little details to take care of.  fortunately, some of those details involve an excuse to purchase beautiful paper products.  i could look at stationery all day long and lucky for me, my bridesmaids luncheon requires several pretty paper purchases {say that five times fast.}

first up, the invitations!  i am SO excited about this.  my family's favorite local restaurant has graciously agreed to open their doors to our little group during the day for a private event.  the chef has come up with an unbelievably delicious brunch menu.  croque mademoiselles {get it? because i'm not a madam yet?} and apple tart with bourbon caramel sauce are just two of the yummy delights he's going to whip up for us.  i spent hours browsing etsy looking for the perfect invitations and here are the ones i decided on:

i love that they're fun and quirky and kind of silly.  they've got the brunch thing going and the little hearts make it wedding weekend-appropriate.  the sweet and obliging fuzzy grapefruit owner, allison,  agreed to print the invitation information on the backside so that they're actually invitations, not greeting cards.

i'm planning on giving all my gals their gifts at the luncheon. i won't share what the gifts are just yet {i have a few sneaky bridesmaid readers}, but i will share some of the adorable thank you cards i've found for them.

i'm having trouble deciding on one. what do you think?

All of these cards are adorable. I think the last of the three bridesmaid cards is my favorite. And I absolutely adore the bacon love eggs cards! I'm 11 months away from my wedding, so I love reading about all of your wedding plans. :)
