My silver post of a couple of days ago got me thinking about weddings. I mentioned the old custom of lining invitations up on the mantel. The very next day I received yet another beautiful invitation and I decided to show it to you.
Weddings are bigger than ever. And fabulous invitations are definitely a part of it. But conventions have changed.
A good friend recently confided her disappointment at not being mentioned on the invitation as parent of the groom. Not at all meant to be a slight, it's apparently a recent development in new style weddings.
Sure enough, my niece's lovely invitation mentions neither set of parents. But when I opened it, I was charmed to find a monogrammed seal closing the inner envelope, sort of reminiscent of the antiquated wax seal that I also referred to in my post.
Attached to ribbon, it opens like a little gift.
It was a delight to open. Mail doesn't usually do that for me. :o)
I'll RSVP right away. In the meantime, my mantel is beginning to look wonderfully old fashioned!
I hope you get some pretty mail today too!
Ciao! for now!
