    OMG is right. I LOVE THIS and need to have one done for myself. I think I might. LOL, just so I’ll have one.

  2. Melissa B. says:

    This is adorable. Love!

  3. Vismajor says:

    Definitely LOVE. I’m totally stealing this idea for… something, don’t know what yet… for my husband. Maybe a poster as an anniversary gift? Maybe a renew-the-vows invitation someday?

    People love a good story with a happy ending. Why not give it to them in the invitation? 🙂

  4. Toni says:


    Well written, and entertaining. Plus, without even knowing the couple, I want to be their friends.

  5. Lee says:

    *Completely* awesome, both the story and the design work.

  6. Kate says:

    I’d love to have the wedding that this invitation suggests – fun, fairly casual, stylish, personal, good-humored.

  7. Twistie says:

    See? If I’d had the mad invitation-designing skillz back in the day, I might have done something very like this! Of course it would have played merry havoc with our mailing budget, but some things are worth splurging on. Invitations have never been one of those things for me, before, but for this…yeah.

    It’s not for everyone, obviously, but I kind of love it to tears.

  8. Sarah says:

    Love it! Also seems like it would be appreciated by everybody. Relatives who may not know the couple very well get filled on in their story, while good friends get to laugh and go “Yeah, I remember that!”

  9. La BellaDonna says:

    I think this is just freaking fabulous.

    And yes, I want to be their friend.

    (Also, Wilmington, Delaware? I could totally have stalked them and thrown rice!)

    Too long. No love.

  11. kate says:

    Love it. And it makes me wonder how many miles my husband and i racked up before (and after…) our wedding.

  12. angela says:

    you know what kills me? the “dinner and dancing and eternity to follow.” d’awwwww!

  13. Elaine says:

    LOVE! Sounds a little like my story. I’ll have to remember this idea.

  14. Shell says:

    LOVE, absolutely. This is ~personal~, not stamped out generic paper goods from a warehouse somewhere!

  15. Kathy says:

    LOVE. So much. Hats of f to whoever came up with the idea AND whoever carried it out.

  16. Kathy says:

    And I mean off…not of f…whatever that means.

  17. This has to be the best invitation I’ve ever seen. I love it!

  18. Glinda says:


    I’m jealous I never came up with the idea for my wedding!

  19. Johanna says:

    This is probably why I should stop reading this blog after the wedding. Too many great ideas to love and then be jealous and bummed I didn’t come up with it! Though I hope I’ll remember this is not a contest, never want to stop.

    Right now I was just starting to think about the invitations and might or might not steal this a little. 😉

    Voice of dissent! This particular example is well-done, but these too-personal, too-long invitations are usually embarrassing and annoying. If I don’t know you well enough to know already, I don’t WANT to know. I’ve seen examples of these that included the charming tale of the bride who gave the groom a deadline for proposing, or the saga of the on-again-off-again daters who finally decided to be on-again. They’re just plain self-indulgent. I read enough novels, thanks, just tell me the date and the location.

  21. Kate says:

    Don’t love. Too long and confusing. I’m sure I can hear the couple’s story at the reception!

  22. lillie says:

    Wow CARROT, with your attitude I’m surprised you actually get invited to weddings.

  23. Sara says:

    I want to purchase these invites… anyone know how??
