Well, the wedding plans are coming along, I am seeing this wedding on a budget thing as a challenge, but then I see most of life as a challenge!
Today we plan to check on the fixins for making the invitations. Now remember this is a big formal wedding and the invitation is the fist sign most folks will have of the mood for the day. And the mood will be “once in a lifetime- glorious- taste of heaven- celebration!” A wedding should represent the beginning of a lifetime covenant, representational of our walk with Jesus.
So things cannot look homemade. But I do believe we can make most of the elements of this celebration day without spending tons of money we do not have, (on to that it in a minute). So, today we go to the printers to see and feel real invites, the expensive kind. Then we go to hobby lobby and office max. Between the two we are going to be looking at papers, vellum, and ribbons, oh and envelopes. The outside needs to be pretty simple if we expect the automated postal system to get them where they are going. But the inside can be fancy, or rather elegant.
Ok so now the nitty gritty. How am I going to come up with the funds? ( I would say “we” but hubby reminds me, his job is to “pray, fast, and preach the Word”). So this administrator gets to handle all things financial. Anyway, we will be having an online fundraiser in February. Not sure of the exact date yet, but if you saw the last one you know it was good. A firesale of sorts, folks got well over $700 of resources for home and family for only $49 and this one will be better. If you would like to be notified, look for the purple box to the right that says “join our mailing lists” and add your name. It will give you a choice of lists, check the penny raine announcements, and any others you might be interested in. And keep checking back here .
