Find me between the rock and a hard place

Where am I? I am just a little over a month from my wedding date. *SIGH* This wouldn't be such a problem except for the fact that I Still have not sent out wedding invitations.

Now, the whole idea of doing wedding invitations seems a little pointless anyway since the guest list is so small and all of our family and friends are confirmed to come anyway but still - my mother wanted to do them.

Originally I was getting handmade invitations done from a lovely graphic designer in NYC who I found via ebay. She runs a site called ILoveThisCard.com. I can hardly blame her for the fact that I don't have the invitations at this point. It's my fault. But to be fair, I have been in and out of the doctor's at least once a week and also in the hospital itself for a couple of days. Coordinating logistics for a wedding just end up low on the priority list when all of the stuff like that happens, see?

But I still would like to fulfill the commitment that I originally set out on to do invitations. Enter the route of DIY (Do-it-yourself).

There are a number of reasonable DIY kits that I've seen in the local craft super stores (AC Moore and Michael's) and I found some online as well. I could certainly do a little more than just print them from my home computer and send them off and go the way of mounting and embellishing them since I actually have only 20 invitations to do but I don't know. I just don't know. When I think of how easy it will be to just zip them through the printer, *shrug* anything that makes life easier that day is just that much more of a winner for me these days!

I am a little sad that we will likely not be able to use our original designs for invitations but I think something like this could be just as nice. Also, the cherry blossoms would work for the Asian theme and the red and pink color scheme would work well for the fact that Valentine's is just around the corner from our wedding day!

It would be about $125 without response cards but honestly? Do we really even need response cards??? If I really think an RSVP is necessary, I could always just include an extra "info" card with our wedding website info and have people RSVP online - and it's not like we don't already know who is coming anyway!

What to do, what to do? I'm seriously coming in under the gun here. And let's not even get into the fact that I also am having the hardest time trying to find someone to do hair and make-up!
