You have no idea how thrilled I was to find it.  Grandmother must have kept it for years and then her daughter kept it too.  Thank you for your interest.
Yes, was quite excited when i saw it. it.  It will be 110 years old in November of this year.

Thankk you so much for your comments.
It's also a very good marriage source

Most unusual to find your grandmother's wedding invitation. I am so glad that you found it. I hope that you are keeping it in a safe place now for future generations.

Thank you so much.  Yes will keep it in Aunt Hattie's Tree which I will leave to someone in the family - not sure who yet but it will be left to someone.

I actually have an older invitation which I will put into m Great Aunt Devinia's folder later.  Also have one from Mary Croll Hird as well which was a bit earlier.  Both were sisters to my Grandmother.

What a wonderful thing to have! I so wish I had more of these types of keepsakes from my own family.

I wish I had one of my grandmother's wedding invitations. I loved her so much.

You are so blessed to have one of your grandmother's, and I appreciate that you were willing to share it with us.

Thank you!
