Something borrowed, something blue...

My friend, Alice (Lindsay), is getting married in a couple months and I'm designing her invites as quickly as I conceivably can. I've scoured the web for sample wedding invitations so that I know what is appropriate, traditional, and of-the-moment.

Today an advertiser put in their annual wedding supply advertisement. For no apparent reason they wanted a wedding border. Borders are wrong. I don't care how many are provided for you in Microsoft Publisher, they are morally repugnant. Fortunately there is no such thing as a wedding border, at least not at my place of employment. Turns out, we don't have much in the way of wedding clip art at all. So this time I had to conduct a photo search of brides and grooms so I could appropriately decorate the ad. We'll see how it goes, I gathered from my boss that Amish weddings are not like traditional American weddings, but I've never seen an Amish traditional American it is.

I've spent the past three days entirely immersed in wedding land and I've got 20 days of invitation designing/printing to go. Wish me luck.
