Me: Do you like the draft wedding invitation?

Chris: Awww… you made this? 🙂

Me: Yep. I’ll probably tweak it for months but at least the basic parts are there.

C: What’s to tweak? Aside from the address that you have to fill in, it’s perfect!

Me: The font. I’m not sure I’m happy about Gill Sans in the inside of the card.

C: …

Me: I’m such a nerd.

C: Yes you are.

  1. LOVE the “Keeping Calm and Carrying On”. ROFL. I’ll have to find a way to steal that without actually stealing it.

    From one typephile to another, Helvetica is the way to go.

    • Thanks, Burn. 😀 I stole it from a vintage British war slogan myself. I thought it was a nice touch since we got engaged in London.

      Hmm… I will try Helvetica. Gill Sans was great on the cover but it looked so stuffy in the inside. 😀

  2. Hahaha you ARE a nerd. Unfortunately, that’s why we’re friends. Hahahahaha. I can’t wait to see you this December!!!

  3. Gill Sans is great! It looks so funky…but the inside is quite ‘old-fashioned’, so you should choose more English types of fonts.
    Okay…I think the invitations have been sent out by now.

    • I know, it’s an odd mix of funky modern outer design and an old-fashioned inside. 😀 Hehe. I’ve settled on Gabriola for the normal text inside, it’s modern but a little curvier and wispier.

      The invites haven’t even been sent out yet because we haven’t settled on a date yet. Chris and I are not sure when I would be able to come to the US. It all depends on so many factors. We have very few guests (only 45-ish) and they’ve been warned to free up a weekend sometime in June.
