That will be the theme of the wedding…or rather, what’s left of the wedding anyway. I know, I know – it’s all oh-so-cheesy but it was a spur-of-the-moment thing.

A trip to The Curve yielded some trial sheets for the invites and somehow gut instinct told me to go with something Asian yet Western. Stock there is pretty expensive so I’ll need to scout around for cheaper alternatives – the local art shop nearby will do just fine, I think.

I reckon I’ll be settling for a one-piece invite with some cherry-blossom trimming on one side, vellum + backing on the other (with the message) and some embellishments in the form of gold fasteners and a punched out hei or double happiness (DH).

As for the envelopes (red is the way to go), I’m hoping to either use a wax seal (yes, I found some available with the DH character) and/or rubber stamp with some embossing powder.

Now if only Nil can pick a date for the dinner!
