Our plans are already well under way, but the next milestone are the invitations. Gold and cream to match the general colour scheme for the wedding, they have been designed and hand made by Judy Zatonski who counts author Jilly Cooper amongst her customers.

Most of the money that Judy makes goes towards Greyhound charities.

The design can, exclusively, be seen here – I’ve not even put this on the website yet.

I’ve also printed all the inserts that go inside – these differentiate the cards between being reception and evening invites. This was done on some matching cream paper, but I’ve yet to cut them out and stick them into the cards.

The final, big hurdle is to produce some matching address labels – I’ve already brought some transparent Avery ones. I just need to get all the address together and design a suitable label.

Fingers crossed, the cards should be out by the end of the year.

Oh, and on Saturday I head into Nottingham with my best man to find some suits…. I hope I don’t end up with a cravat!
