To start with a little background. The party itself had some constraints. We had a limited budget. The guest list consisted of almost 90 people. And, since I was planning from afar, everything had to be simple enough to do on-site 24 hours before the party or small enough that I could take it with me on the plane.
Also, some items of note. Lindy is an author. Javi grew up in Mexico. There life together began in New York.
So. The first question we had to address was invitations. Because Lindy is a writer, we decided to type the invitations on my vintage Remington typewriter. The invitations were simple- paperbag cards, typed with the following "lindy loves javi. javi loves lindy. they are getting married! help us celebrate." followed by date, time, location and RSVP information.
The night before I went to send them, I had a slight panic attack. They just looked so... brown. So at the last minute, I decided to hand-cut some confetti using a 1" round cutter and brightly colored cardstock. I thought it added just the festive feel we were looking for.
Stay tuned- more party details (including our amazing ceiling installation) to come tomorrow!
