Remember that one time it took me a WEEK to finish my napkins... well yesterday I figured since I had extra time, I would finish yet another mundane task: tying ribbon around each bottle of bubbles. As Isaac and I walk down the aisle as husband and wife, we are going to have our beloved guests blow bubbles, and to spice up my dollar store purchases (only $1 for 9 bottles!!!) I thought ribbon would do the trick. Now considering the last time it took me to cut and tie ribbon around my napkins, I felt disgusted thinking how long this was going to take me....
but I underestimated myself. I'm getting really good at this stuff and it took me less than an hour to cut all the ribbon and tie them around the bubbles. Relief. It's not too exciting but here they are.
By the way, OUR STRAWS CAME!!! And as you can see, we are verrry excited!
Don't worry, we got an extra pack for ourselves. We won't be serving you these straws.
My glitter wedding shoes needed a little pick me up and I was feeling crafty....
so I cut some circles from a pink fabric I picked up, grabbed a few earring clips (because I couldn't find shoe clips) and found needle and thread (which is actually really hard to find in our house... we apparently aren't very domestic).
After a half hour, I had these...
The earring clips worked perfectly. I'm pretty stoked.
Six months from yesterday we will be saying 'I Do'!!!! What's even weirder is that we've been engaged for 9 months already. That's so crazy. People told me it would fly by and it definately has.
We just sent out oursave the dates (or STD's as they are known in the wedding blog world) this week! In case you were wondering, that picture was taken by my fabulously talented cousin Tami Paige. I told her I wanted it to look vintage and she definately delivered.
Once the picture was ready, I went to weddingpaperdivas.com and was able to pick from about 100 different save the date designs. They have really cute invitation designs too but their save the dates are more afforable. I picked about 6 designs to test out which ones looked the best with our picture. You can also choose the different color you want, and the different fonts. Once we narrowed it down to the one we liked, I ordered them, and they sent me a digital proof to show exactly what it was going to look like. After I gave them the ok, they printed them off and shipped them to me. They said it was going to take about two weeks but they actually sent them to me after only 3 days! I'm very happy with how they turned out.
