@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



-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)
