My niece will celebrate her birthday next week. She will turn eighteen and that she will be regarded as an adult this time. To be a debutante doesn't mean that one can do whatever he/she wants but an adult who can decide for her own self and has reached the age of maturity.
Today, she prepared list of guest to be invited. She plans to just have a personalized invitation card and custom envelopes for the party. That way, she will save small amount from the budget and the money saved from the invitation will be spent to other miscellaneous expenses. I think she has prepared everything including the dress that she will wear on the day of the event. Her only worries are the invitations. I hope that she gets the cards and envelopes earlier so can distribute it by next week.
