Invites Came In!!!

So my wonderful bridesmaid, Ruby, finished my wedding invitations and sent them in to me.  I love them!  They're so pretty! 

So originally I budgeted $200 for invitations.  The paper cost $10, the shipping was about $20, and I'm getting a $10 gift card for the kid who designed them.  Total cost = $40.  Now all I need to get are envelopes and possibly inserts to put them in.  It should be under $100 total.  WOO HOO!

Aren't they beautiful??

New wedding band!

So I returned my old wedding band and got a different one.  I thought the old one was too gaudy.  It was an insert so there was a band on the top and a band on the bottom.  With the way my ring is, I felt like it was too much on my hand.  So I got one that goes on the bottom.  It doesn't go flush against my engagement ring but I think it looks good enough.  I'm going to have to send it in to get it resized (it's a little big) but I wanted to take it home to show Casey.

So here is the first one I had that I didn't like:

And this is the one I replaced it with:

Again, it's a little big so I'm going to have to get it resized, but I think it's a lot less gaudy.  It was also half the price which is nice because now I have money to spend on other things.  :)

Wedding Bands

So my wedding band came back from the jeweler today and honestly, I hate it.  It's too gaudy.  My ring is a very unique shape so I thought getting an insert made to fit around the ring would look great but instead it looks like too much for my small fingers.  I called the jeweler and asked if it could be returned since I already purchased it and they already bent it to fit my other ring.  The girl who answered the phone didn't know if I could do that so I have to call back on Monday to talk to a manager.  I really just want something much simpler.  So hopefully it's not too late to change it.
