invitation overload

I knew it wasn't going to be easy to choose invitations, but I had no idea just how difficult it would be. There are so many options to consider, it's ridiculous. Paper weight, size, shape, color. Borders, embelishments, bows, flowers. Printing method. Typeface style and color. Enclosure cards. Envelopes, double envelopes, envelope liners. I had no idea it was so complicated. When mom and I went to look, the salespeople kept pulling out big, gigantic book after book after book after book filled with sample invitations. Within 15 minutes of entering the paper store, the enormous table was covered with open books and mom and I both felt completely overwhelmed. I think she and I finally figured it all out, after three trips to the same store.
