As you may know, we did not register for anything. Well, actually, we buried a pseudo registry (Honeyfund.com) in our wedding website, but didn’t think anyone would navigate to it. However, people are more tenacious than we thought! So we had some thank you cards to write (especially after the non-shower dinner the other night)!!
Initially I was going to order up some thank you notes from Lindsey (our invitation designer extraordinaire) to match our invitations. But we never got around to it. A little while back, Mr. P came up with the idea of using something that is reflective and specific to our venue (since it’s kind of like a third character in our wedding play!).
So on our last planning trip to the Homestead, we asked Esme (our coordinator) for some note cards with the resort’s image. She gladly gave us a bunch of these beautiful pen and ink printed cards. They’re simple, a little vintage-y and perfect! I just needed to spruce them up a little bit. I lined the envelopes (they’re really thin);
created a ’thank you’ band;
