Stats of Wedding (as of 04-20-2012):
Things are starting to come together nicely. I have booked most of the major vendors, and the only things that are left to be done can only be done closer to the time period. I am trying to not get too wound up about the wedding details, because I figure that it wont do me any good to worry about things that, in the grand scheme of things, are out of my control. All I can do is try to inspire a fun time for ourselves and for our guests.
There have been quite a few changes in directions since I started planning this wedding, most noticeably my choice of centerpieces. I got a sweet deal in floral arrangements and centerpieces, so I am no longer DIY-ing those. Which is a good thing, because its one less thing to worry about on the day of. However, I had already started purchasing the materials for my original centerpieces, so I will need to sell those materials. If anyone is interested in purchasing the stems featured in the picture below, please let me know (Private Message please)!
I have sixteen bunches available for purchase. For the above centerpiece, I used two bunches.
I bought these bunches from Michaels, however, I can no longer return them because I bought them a while back. I tried returning a few, and they looked at me like I was a weirdo. Or a thief.
As to the rest, the invites are almost set to print (Thank you "DIY Wedding Challenge: Semi DIY Pocket Fold Invitations" for the great directions!), and the favors are in the process of being made. Its exciting (and a little bewildering) to think that there are only five months left...
The color scheme is working out better then I thought it would. In all honesty, I never in my wildest dreams would have thought of this color combination. So really, whoever made the inspiration board, my heartfelt thanks! You are a genius!!
Color Inspiration Board: I wish I knew who to give proper credit (and thanks) for this...
