Everyone who knows me at all knows that I am not a numbers person.
I have learned that when the numbers in front of me mean something concrete and relate to my life, then I'm much more likely to figure them out.
But not always.
Because you guys, I ordered 150 save the date! magnets. Since we're inviting, at the absolute max 130 people (which is really pushing the limits of the space), in my mind I needed 130 save the dates, just to be safe. Right? And because you have to order them in increments of 50, I ordered 150.
So Maria and I have been talking about invitations, because I am ordering (orange!) envelopes and she is getting printer quotes.
The numbers I kept coming up with were so much bigger than hers. Like, pretty much twice as big.
Why, you might ask?
Or you might not.
Because you might be one of those people who doesn't need to use fingers and toes to do math, and then get panicked when the numbers exceed your digits. Who realizes that you don't need to count every single possible attendee when coming up with invitation numbers.
You might be one of those people who would look at your spreadsheet and realize that couples? Share an invitation. You only have to count them once for these purposes.
The magnets? We will have easily twice as many as we need.
