sanded and stained our wedding signs
made stencils for our wedding signs
& spray painted some mason jars white to get that milk glass look
I’ve already made our Save-The-Date Cards and they are sent!
My to dos prior to the week of are:
Cut the fabric that I’m adding to the skirt of my dress for color. Sew it on.
Make my fascinator/veil
Make our invites
Cut the wood for our centerpieces and assemble the centerpieces
Cut the burlap overlays to size.

@Roe: Ohh good questions!
– had our wedding fingerprint tree designed by my sister and got the inks
– created a mockup of our centrepieces and have them all packed away safely (I hope!)
– had mockups of the invitations made, including DIY pocketfolds
– started escort card holders/name card holders
I HAVE TO:
-get a wood box or build one and create the card box
-finish escort card holders (about 15 left to do, just been busy and lazy)
-assemble all of the invites and programs
-possibly do flowers and bouquets (still debating on this one)
