Yes, really.
Hmm. Reminds me of the wedding that was Twilight themed (He even changed his last name to Cullen) and the resulting bridal pics.

When I got married last year (my wedding was June 11th), I had my invites out in Mid-March. I may have gotten them out slightly earlier than most because I had 80-85% out of town guests, but I thought I had timed it about right.
I have not. They should be going out no later than next week (they were ordered last week). I realize I may be pushing it just a tad, but as soon as they come in, it's stuff, stamp and drop in the mail!

I've heard of sending invites out early if many of your guests are out of town, so sounds like you did the right thing My coworker is getting married in her hometown, and since most of the guests will be out of the area, her invites have been out for a few weeks now.

Maybe he is a mascot? So many people know him as that?

See I thought it was whimsical and cute. Maybe it's like an inside joke between the two of them? Or maybe they were just trying to be funny? I know a few couples who might do something themed. Maybe not bear themed, but themed.

The bear was totally my problem with this. It was too cutesy...and let's face it, in engagement photos, there's a certain implied sexual nature. It read to me "I want to have sex with a teddy bear". Certain things have been romanticized (vamps, werewolves, superheros, even aliens) and make them less child-molester-ish than a teddy.

The one of them running on the beach looks like he's chasing her!

Also, it reminds me of Pedobear. Particularly her babydoll type dress. And judging by his t-shirt when he's not in the bear suit, I figure they know about it, as his t-shirt also has a very interwebby-meme-y feeling.

Yeah I did get the pedobear reference, but it just wasn't the vibe I was feeling. I think I would have if they did all bear pictures. But the couple that were the two of them in normal clothes made it feel silly and sweet to me. In any case, it's their photos, haha. If you're paying that much for them, you can get whatever you want.

So a friend of mine got a nasty shock last week. His daughter has her wedding set for I believe it was the end of June, and he and his wife are trying to do a traditional wedding for her. Needless to say, he is incredibly stressed out right now.

A horrible Child's Play-like nightmare.

And just when it started to get cute...the head popped back into the picture. Not cool.

Wedding question:
My neighbor (whose family I'm very close with, as in, I spend holidays at their house) is marrying a teacher from my kids' school. I've become close with her over the years since she's assistant band director and has been dating my neighbor for several years now. I was invited to the wedding and am allowed to bring a guest. My daughter asked if she can go as my guest. She's 18 and will be graduated, but I warned her that a lot of her teachers will be there. I'm thinking it would be weird for both her and the teachers because well, it's a social teacher situation. I also kind of feel bad that my son wouldn't be able to go. I'm leaning toward "no" to hypo going although the bride said it was fine if she came because she's not a kid (it's a no kid wedding).

It wouldn't be a bad thing to have a designated driver with me...lol. I just haven't decided whether I should take her or not. Thoughts?

As the child of teachers, I went to teacher social stuff all the time from birth, so I don't see why she shouldn't go. She will be a graduate, and it will be a good lesson for her that teachers have lives outside of school. Sometimes even the wisest students forget that.

I vote no. Sometimes, as a teacher, you want to enjoy yourself sans kids from work (recently graduated or not.) I understand that you're close but I just think it's awkward-ish.

That's a really tough call, but I'm gonna have to lean towards no too (for the reason KSU listed). There may be a reason that the invitation was addressed to you and a guest and not "The AGDee Family". (And I'm sure that's nothing personal, but they may want to just keep it to adults...not that your daughter isn't technically an adult, but I hope you know what I mean )

My invites went out into the mail today!!!!!!!!!!! So excited, they came out SO BEAUTIFUL! Prettier then I had envisioned

My mom also let me see my shower invitation. The location was supposed to be a surprise, but I found out a few different ways. Whoops! My cousin, who is a graphic designer, made them. They are SO CUTE! It's funny because just a few days ago I gave her a call to ask if she would be willing to do our programs. She asked me what kind of style I liked and we discussed some things. Ironically, what I described is very similar to what the shower invites look like, and I had no idea! So I just called her to say "make them look like the shower invites!" She said she was going to ask me the very same thing after the shower, lol
