The main problem is that our house is on the corner, so I'm majorly worried about privacy. I feel like any cars that drive by will get a perfect view into our living room. Eventually, we would love to replace both doors with doors like this:Lovely framed french doors. But unfortunately, after we looked at doors at Home Depot and pretty much had a heart attack over the price, we realized this is quite a ways off.
So we will have to make due and find some nice curtains/blinds/etc. to use in the meantime. My question is, are there any options besides these? The dreaded vertical blinds!
I know they make "nice" vertical blinds, but I didn't know if there was something else that would provide a good amount of privacy and still look nice. We will be using both doors quite a bit, as that's the way we will let Spencer out into the yard, so I don't want anything super hard to manage or like big bulky curtains I'm constantly having to open. But I do want something that lets a lot of light into the room. Also, budget is somewhat of an issue, so probably nothing that has to be custom made or anything like that.
So any help or advice would be majorly appreciated. Even if it's to tell me that vertical blinds are the way to go. Thanks!!!

From J.Crew, obviously! I ordered these and they should be here tomorrow. Cross your fingers that they fit and are comfortable!
My favorite part about these shoes? The flower! My bridesmaids will be wearing a navy J.Crew flower belt, with their lemon yellow J.Crew dresses:I love that it sort of ties it all in together! So I'm really hoping that these are the ones!

It's layered paper. So it's grass green card stock, layered with navy cardstock, layered with white cardstock. The yellow band at the top is actually yellow satin ribbon, wrapped around the top layer of cardstock. All the printing will be done in navy.
Obviously I had to take out all the personal information, but you can get the main idea. I love that we're adding a little bit of ribbon, to make it a little bit fun and textured.
My favorite part is that it's actually a pocketfold invite...the green cardstock actually has a pocket on the back of it, where all of our insert cards will go. I really liked the idea of a pocketfold, but I didn't want anything that opened up or was too much. When she showed me that she actually had a flat pocketfold option, I was SO excited! So I get the convienence of a pocketfold, to keep all the cards in one place, plus it's very clean and traditional looking for the actual invite.
We'll have the inner envelope, and then the main envelope, which will be lined in navy! Yay for lined envelopes!
We're scheduled to send these out June 25th...umm craziness!!
