D.I.Y wedding invitations

My only beloved sister is planning to get married this June. She has appointed me to be her maid of honor and wedding planner. I just love weddings in general .. to be part of someone's special day is always a great thing to witness. Reality is kicking in and we have less than 3 1/2 months left before my sister ties the knot. I finally finished the wedding invitations and I took it upon myself to do everything on my own. Being that it was my first time doing wedding invitations I think I did good. It's a very simple, modern, and sophisticated invitations and I'm sure my sister will love it. 

    dining table became my work space 

I bought all my supplies at Paper Presentation on w.18th street btw 5th & 6th av. This store is amazing. I was literally there for hours just wandering around and looking at all the amazing supplies they offer. 

Did I mention I have 3 1/2 months before my sister's wedding! wow! I can't believe it's almost here and I still can't believe I haven't purchased my maid of honor dress. My sister was kind of enough to allow me to pick my own dress as long it coordinates with her wedding colors which is pastel blue & silver. I did search on the web and I found a couple of dresses I liked but haven't got a chance to try any of them on. Let me know what you guys think about the dresses. :)
