Inspiration for Invites

I love the look of the invitations below and think I can do something similar within my budget. I'm planning to buy pre-cut cardstock and envelopes from Envelopper inc. The matte for the invitation will be red and the invitation and envelope will be ivory. I'm thinking about buying this stamp and I will probably get the embossing powder and heat gun from Joann's.

There is a excellent tutorial on how to emboss here.

We've booked a band!

I'm so excited! I hadn't planned on having a band at the reception but last Saturday night Mr. H & I went to see my dad's best friend's band Vertigo. They are a cover band mostly of classic rock hits and some jazz. They were awesome. The whole crowd was dancing. And the slow songs they played were rockin' oldies.

More on them soon... :)

Cave Hollow Centre Pt. 2

Here's some pictures of where we're going to get married!! The ceremony will be in the gazebo with about 150+ white chairs for seating & the reception hall is right next to the gazebo. The gazebo which should be completely built, wired for sound and painted white with a taupe floor by next fall.

$50 to reserve the date, $450 the week of the wedding & we get $150 back if there's no damage. So... $350!

Someone was having their reception there tonight so it was kind of decorated but they didn't do much. I can see lots of possibilities for decorating more. What do you think!? Pretty, huh? :)

Cave Hollow Centre Pt. 1

Emma & I are headed out to the cave to get some pictures of the ceremony site and the reception hall. Be back soon!
