I don’t have a wedding blog or board to share. I should really put one together. But I loved looking at yours! Your venue and decorating ideas all look beautiful. I love the Asian-style table runners. How are you going to situate these on the round tables? Are they going to lie all the way across?

Thanks for sharing your bios, Miss Ruffles and Andrea! They’re so helpful. I love seeing what other brides are doing for their weddings. Good luck with your planning since they’re both coming up so quickly!

My fiance and I have a wedding blog, but we don’t update it nearly enough:

Also, since our guests mainly read it, he won’t let me post much of the fun stuff on there (my dress, diy projects, hair trials) for fear that nothing will be left to surprise. Since I needed to post that stuff somewhere, i also started a flickr site so I can see how it’s all coming together:

p.s. – we live in philly, but the wedding will be in lancaster county, pa, in case you don’t recognize any of the ceremony or reception sites!

Hi Sillyinphilly! Your invitations are amazing & I love the calligraphy.  I also saw you hired Mariano Delgado. I was considering on meeting with him too- I would love any feedback on his photography

Thanks Snappal! We’re on a shoestring budget (around $7,000) and photography was one of the most agonizing decisions for me.Like, I spent months and months searching for a photographer for us. Most of the photogs who I loved were way out of my price range and many who I could afford either seemed really cheesy or their photos felt too amateur. Mariano is definitely affordable (even with extra money that we’re paying for travel fees he’s still cheaper than some of the others we were considering) and although not overly flashly, his work looks classy and has nice colors and compositions. Also, he was great to meet in person – very friendly and professional and has been great about staying in touch via e-mail before the wedding. So, so far I have the highest hopes for him, I’ll let you know how the photos turn on after July 12th!

Miss Ruffles–That is cool you lived in Yardley!  We are right in the borough, which I really like–you don’t even feel like you are in the burbs.

sillyinphilly–Your DIY projects are awesome!  Thanks for sharing.

Hey all.  I’m a Philly bride (ok a Mont Co bride)

 

I have a blog which I’m BAD about updating, but i am going to try to get back on the bandwagon soon.  I have a bunch of things I want to post!

sillyinphilly –

Your calligraphy on flickr is awesome!  I’m even feeling inspired to try my hand at it.  Where did you learn?

Thanks Amjdvm and MissCaps!

As far as the calligraphy, I just bought a $2 quill pen and bottle of ink from pearl (any crafts store would have them, though). then i looked at the sample styles on professional calligraphers’ websites and at the calligraphy styles that i loved in martha stewart weddings and tried to copy them on a piece of paper as closely as possible. after a bunch of mistakes i just came up with a hybrid style that was the most comfortable for me. it’s still very, very far from professional quality, but worked enough for me. if you’re going to try this yourself, definitely set up a make-shift light table (lamp under a glass table top will do) and draw dark lines on a sheet of paper to put under your envelopes. I normally can’t write straight to save my life.

Wow, Silly, you are one talented BTB. Did you also DIY your hair? I’m very impressed!

I love your table numbers.
