I was still a little conflicted when we made the big decision to book the venue. I was thinking that we hadn't seen everything yet. What if we liked something better? What if we were missing out on the perfect venue, the perfect location, the perfect... something? There was the day, soon after we signed the contract, that we went exploring downtown and I realized there was a pretty cool area that maybe our visiting family would have liked better than an outlet mall. Then I fretted for days. But then I realized, it doesn't matter. The place we found is awesome, and it's going to be great. But more importantly... in less than 9 months, I am marrying this wonderful guy:
these. The only problem? I wanted post cards, not envelopes. For one, it's cheaper, but also I think the postcards are cute! I contacted Minted customer service who said "No problem!" and gave me instructions for how to put the special order in. Then I wanted the matching thank you cards but they weren't sold separately, only with the invitations which I wasn't ordering directly. Again I asked customer service, and she added a custom card to my cart with the details. Despite two complicated special orders, the proofs came out looking exactly how I wanted. A week later, they were delivered. Awesome job by Minted.

But I can't worry too much about the state of my post cards, so I'm moving on. As with the venue I've decided that good enough is good enough. That's my new wedding planning mantra- Do the best I can and then give up at good enough. It's better for my blood pressure.
In related news, we celebrated our second dating anniversary last night. Exciting to think that in a year we'll be married and have a new anniversary! Dan wanted to watch the Capitals game (they lost) so we stayed in and grilled chicken wings and drank champagne:
