Yesterday my dear friend Sophie came over to talk about invitations! She's an amazing artist and I was thrilled when she agreed to design our invitations. (She just started a blog, too. Go give her some lovin'!) I knew I wanted have a hand in designing them because then I would get *exactly* what I wanted. I'm...picky, to say the least. Maybe "particular" is a better word. Any way you say it, I have very strong ideas of what I like and what I don't like.
At the same time, I like A LOT of different styles. Let's take a quick browse through a few of the pictures in my "Wedding Inspiration" folder. Please note that a lot of these images were saved a long time ago. I'll do my best to credit the appropriate source.

Large, scripty writing!
Damask-type stamping things!
Pocket folds (and monograms)!
(Again, I got nothin')
Sort of all over the place, right? Well, I finally settled on the idea of flourishes. I know they're all over the place right now, yet I can't help but love them.
Here is a sneaky peaky of what we worked on last night.
There are not at all final, but it will give you an idea of where things are headed. I'm SO EXICITED! Oh, and I can't wait to tell ya'll about my quest for the perfect invitation wording.
Did you know exactly what you wanted for invitations or were you all over the place?
