10 weeks to go ladies!

 

Our invites arrived today. I got them on vistaprint, and they look amazing! I’m so happy with them. Ideally I would have loved to make them all by hand, but that wasn’t possible. Since we’re having a small, fairly informal wedding I plan on hand delivering them.

 

That’s one of the last things to check off, yay!

Holy crap – 10 weeks? eek!

I haven’t taken pictures of anything because I haven’t DIYed anything, lol. I’m drowning in work and very grateful I decided to pay vendors ages ago.

I’m always impressed by the creativity of the ladies on here. Looking good, everyone!!

@lexie0013:  Love the back of your dress! 

 

I can’t believe there is only 71 days to go! I just had my first dress fitting this past week and loved it. I had yet to try my dress on with my shoes and as luck would have it, I don’t need a hem!

 

What does everyone still have left to do? I feel like I’m at this point where I need to start hammering out decor decisions and all the little details that really make a wedding. Eek! 

 

And popcorn bar, ladies? Yay or nay?

@Mazly007:  I’m so pro popcorn bar.. but I would suggest that if you’re doing bathroom baskets you include floss or those floss/pick things πŸ™‚

Ummm… I’m just tracking RSVPs at this point and my shower is in a few weeks. I need to give the itinerary and schedule back to the DJ with the music noted, pick up the marriage license, get my hair/make up trial done, order the food for the house the day of (and buy the decorations for the railing), buy the gifts for the wedding party, and put the order in for flowers for the parents’ houses as a gift to mom(s). That’s pretty much it. Oh and pick up my viel but that’s being done at my next fitting. 

I don’t know if anyone else feels the same, but mentally I’m so over/past the wedding. All I can think about now is honeymoon.

@sanjessica:  I feel over it too! I’m trying not to have that attitude because, good Lord willing, I’ll only do this once, BUT it’s hard! I’m just ready to be off work for a week and hang out in Gatlinburg πŸ™‚ It’s getting close, ladies!!

@Mazly007:  POPCORN! Oh heck yes!

I have my monthly (yep, high maintenance….) hair appointment on Monday so I’ll go over ideas with my hairdresser then. I might even take the fascinator with me so she can have a look at it. She does makeup too, but if she can’t do mine I have a couple of MUA friends who I could ask.

I am looking for shoes. I want purple with a low-ish heel, peep toe (November is spring for me) and no straps… I have a large foot tattoo I want to show off. I’ve had no luck so far, but as fate would have it, I clicked on an ad here on the bee, and found purple wedding shoe porn… LOVE. Way more than I wanted to spend, but heck, so was my dress! At least I can wear the shoes again!

My personalised favours and toasting glasses are in the mail, I need to finish unpacking all my craft supplies (we moved 3 weeks ago) to see if I have enough stuff to make the memory charms for the tree.

And I feel everyone when they say they’re ready for it to be over, and I’m only have a tiny wedding!

@kathrynm75:  I’ll show you what I have, I haven’t shared too many photos so far!

Hair trial:

My nails (these are my hands from earlier this year – I’ll have these with more length and the base will be shimmery):

Shoes:

Flowers (all tulips wrapped with my mum’s veil and navy blue ribbon):

Memory tree (I DIY’d the charms with photos of family that have passed):

Centrepieces, which were a gift:

@Mazly007:  haha oh goodness if someone else gives me a countdown I might just fall into a convenient coma that lasts until November 1s. I cannot fathom how it went from being so far away to being so close. Ack!
