Makes sense. Alex was in an a capella group for many years. I'm pretty musically inclined. We're having an a capella group at both the ceremony and performing at the reception. So here's what I'm thinking. Glassine CD envelopes lined with scrapbook paper and a belly band held in place with a personalized sticker. Et Voila!
The most difficult part of this endeavor (aside from burning over 150 cds) is getting a perfect sticker. I, of course, went running to the talented art department at work and enlisted the help of Ms. Jen Mendoza, artist extraordinaire. In no time flat, she had come up with all of these!
I chose my very favorite, tweaked the layout of the date a bit, and sent them off to be printed. Hopefully they will be delivered in time for maid of honor, Jenna, and I to get a few of them together during her visit next week!
So now that I've spent some time at the craft store picking out the envelopes, paper, and ribbons, all I need to do is come up with a playlist, burn some CDs, and put them together. My current playlist ideas include:
- I've Just Seen a Face - Beatles
- The Way You Look Tonight - Frank Sinatra
- Wouldn't It Be Nice - The Beach Boys
- Hey Jude - Beatles
- In My Life - Beatles
- God Only Knows - The Beach Boys
