I got my table runners done and I am hopefully putting my invites together to send out in a month or so!

Working on invitations! DIYing from a kit, and almost done with printing. I know I don’t need to get them out for a few weeks yet, I’m just impatient!

i went apeshit last night at marshall’s

i bought a bunch of gorgeous little silver frames. 1 for an engagement photo, a double frame for a baby picture of each of us, frames for each of our parents’ wedding photos and 4 sets of grandparents (if i can get them all). i’m stopping at my mom and dad’s house later to rummage through photos there.

i also got a lantern for $8 that i might paint silver to use as a card box. i also found a gorgeous shell covered box (kind of like abalone) that we could use… i just have to decide between the two.

tomorrow im hoping to stop at an antique store to look for a german beer stein for a groomsmen (we need 1 more…) and maybe check out prices on some large frames. i’d love to display my escort cards in a few old frames, but i’m not sure if its in the budget.

and this weekend we have to finish collecting addresses to fill out our excel sheet and book dance lessons πŸ™‚

I just got into gear this weekend with a bunch of random wedding tasks…

  • bought 150 place cards (and will work on writing them out as RSVPs trickle in)
  • bought chalk markers for our chalk board
  • ordered 2 pairs of earrings for the wedding – need to decide if they’ll work once they get here
  • and last week I had my first gown fitting – just a little hem shortening is needed πŸ™‚

I went to yard sales and thrift stores and bought more white milk glass for my center pieces! I am using them with the blue mason jars. I have been finding white milk glass vases anywhere from .25 to 2.00!! They have been so much fun to find! I think I have all of them I need now!!! πŸ™‚

I am also working on printing my own invitations. Hoping to get them out by July 14th.

I ran off to the UK with my Mister. We’ve done nothing wedding-related. And that feels heavenly!

Got all my invites out Thursday and Friday! We already got an RSVP back! So exciting!!!!

Other than that I’ve done nothing today. We did a mud run and I’ve been laying around since then.

I’m off Wed-Sun next week so I’m going to start finishing up table numbers, and all my other little DIY projects.
