  • Wedding: October 2012

• I finalized my four flower girls attire. They’re going to be little ballerina’s

• Finally have all the groomsmen’s measurements to order their outfits (which I am doing tomorrow, so I guess it’s a half-done bullet)

• Finalized the first dance song (seriously it has taken us three months to decide)

• Bought the programs (Can we say 100 print your own for $20, yes I think we can Whoohoo!)

• Finalized the two readers and their selections

• Printed out all the Tears of Joy cards and have all the stuff bought and ready to assemble (Mom should be done with that in the next day or so)

• Bought the glitter mesh and other supplies to make two more wreaths for fellowship hall doors

• Finally purchased all of the plants for the outdoor planters and have all of the bottles/jars and globes to hang from the trees outside.

•Bought 1/2 of FI’s wedding gift (which he found and subsequently has early Undecided) and also bought the last of my honeymoon attire

Wow, I’ve gotten more done than I thought. Thanks SuperDuperBrit for starting this thread. I needed that reminder that I already have a ton of stuff done. By The Way those cups are freakin’ adorable!

@risa33:  I’m glad you like the idea. My family has a lot of the jars (my guest will also be drinking out of mason jars). Alot of the bottles Fiance and I actually have found hiking in the woods. We have also picked up a few pieces in thrift stores and flea markets. I’ve attached two of my inspiration pics. We plan to use black string (or magicians string) instead of twine so it will look more like the bottles/jars are actually floating in the air. I’ve also purchased some glass globes (from light fixtures) to hang.

is it sad that even thinking of writing this post is overwhelming? 🙂

@SuperDuperBrit:  I think your backyard is going to look awesome : ) I love jars and glass so we’re using tons. The problem is storing all this stuff Undecided

Update on my July list (just because I need to share and the eyes of my friends have started to glaze if I mention the word wedding) I ordered the groomsmen’s outfits, tablecloths and personalized napkins (Mama Griffin would not stop asking about) this weekend. And I’m sneaking a painting to the framer tomorrow to have prepared as FI’s surprise wedding gift. It’s a piece we got while we were on our engagement trip.

Now if I can just get the dress, the caterer, and the rings straightened out we should be all set.
