Less than a month to the wedding, and so far, we’ve confirmed the dresses, the cake, the JP (Justice of Peace), the venue, the caterer, the wines and the photographer. Phew!
Still on the to-do list: Jimmy’s suit, the favours (we already know what they are), the flowers, the decor, and the (gasp!) invitation cards, which to us are optional. There no time and no budget for letterpress, so I came up with this. But we’re still trying to figure how how to present it.

Congratulation in advance!

> Justice of Peace
Hopefully you’ll only need him that one day… ;->
Seriously: Lookin’ good! Many congrats.
How lovely, congrats! And I love the design of your invitation, esp that darling little doggie! What font did you use for the main text?
Thanks, you guys.
The font for the body text is PMN Caecilia, which has a nice lowercase ‘k’.
congratulations on the nuptials :) that’s a beautiful invite.
Congratulation Karen! What a romantic setting, the Botanic Gardens. So is this card getting mailed, hand delivered as is, or slipped inside a plastic doggy bone?
hey congratulations. Wish you luck for the wedding preps!
I came across your blog, and I love it!! Do go visit mine too :)
Congratulations! I love the fact you invited the doggies, and I hope to be able to do that too when I get married.
Have a great night — the invite looks terrific!
Update: I just found out that Peter Matthias Noordzij’s Caecilia after his wife, Marie-Cécile Noordzij-Pulles.
But also after the wife of some Roman emperor who had her moved out of the house when she got some really nasty disease or something.
So cool, so sweet, so lovely, thats what I imagine your wedding will be ;)
I’m married and had a lovely wedding party. Now, I’m looking forward to a beautiful party (preferably outdoor) for my baby’s first birthday. Botanic Gardens is my choice too.
Looking forward to your pretty pictures. Hope you post them.
> But also after the wife of some Roman emperor who had her moved out of the house when she got some really nasty disease or something.
That’s what Bringhurst mentioned when he wrote about Caecilia, but he didn’t say that the font was named after Sulla’s wife. I got confused too. Then in one of the typophile quizzes, someone have a hint about a font being named after the designer’s wife, and it turned out to be Caecilia.
As Butthead would say:
“Hey, you’re paying attention.”
Snog Blog has a new header! I still like the previous typeface used though…
Karen, your wedding is tomorrow. Are you nervous? Hope all goes well!
Hi… Can I know the name of your JP?
I don’t know which one to choose for my wedding solemnization in June.. Hope that you can recommend..thanks..
The JP’s name was Eric Cheong. He was quite a sport. Came really early and stayed throughout the dinner and entertained us with stories from his youth!
The wedding went really well, aside from some relatives who could not find the place. Photos are ready and I should post them. I don’t think it’ll be anytime soon though.
Dear Karen, I called up Mr. Eric Cheong and he’s available on my wedding day! I was so happy, cos the previous three JPs I called up were taken & I almost freaked out. Haha.. Thanks..
I would like to see the doggies at your wedding.. I love dogs!
Yeah, none of the other JPs wanted to renew our vows either. You’ll enjoy having him. He’s really good fun and I thought his speech was really nice as well.
In the end there were three dogs at the wedding. Look out for the piccies.
