This is arch a tiny insignificant detail but if I don't write it down I'll forget lol 

Need to remember my signature pink fluffy pen for the signing of the register photo bcos I always always use it I never use regular pens lol have a few fluffy pink pens instead 

I would double check if this is allowed. My old boss wanted a specific pen due to him being left landed and this pen of him gave him neater writing and was told no, it has to be the pen they provide as the ink is specialised ink. My SIL also bought a beautiful pen and was told no, again because it had to be their pen with their ink

I just mean for the posed photo! They wouldn't be able to take a picture of my cute fluffy pen if I were signing the register with it anyway but it's for after when we're pretending to do it lmao

Ah that's good! I know my SIL was mightily peeved when she was told her £60 pen would not be used haha

It’s still worth checking - we were given a special inkless pen for the posed photo so we couldn’t accidentally write on the register! 

It may depend on whether you can use the actual book or if you have a fake one. We got the actual book as we were the first entry on the page - so there is a one in four chance of being able to have your photos with the real entry.

That's interesting! I do have a couple that have totally run out of ink I wonder if they usually have this rule they'd still let me use it if I prove it's empty...

Here's a question, why am I finding it so difficult to choose an envelope color for the invites? 😂😂😂

Haha oh god i feel you there! Ive spent the last week or so going back on forth on it, and mines only for save the dates! 

I'm glad everyone else is as mental as I am!

I decided to go for 3 different colours haha so the day invites are gonna have a forest Green envelope with little red ones for the rsvp cards (sounds Christmassy but the invites also have yellow, orange, pale pink and gold so), and the evening invites are gonna have yellow envelopes

I have too many ideas to fit into one day. I'm glad we have a kid I can plan birthday parties for.

So the day invites took absolutely forever to make because I DIY handcrafted them, all 25. Including, watercolour painting, printing text, paper cutting and crafting, 4 separate elements and 2 envelopes per invite so I decided I could not do the same for the evening invites, I just don't have the energy lol so I figured I have a graphic design business (augustskiesdesigns - i'm on instagram, redbubble and etsy), why not use those skills? So it's hand drawn, then digitally coloured, I'll print them onto cream card, cut it out and make a pocket fold for both sections to sit in :)
