It has been about two weeks since I last did a wedding update, and there are very few updates left! I’m in the homestretch of my to do list, and most of my projects are just about done. All that’s really left is to pay wedding vendors, wrap up some DIY projects, re-organize the wedding stuff and make a detailed plan for our reception coordinator. Oh, we do have to get wedding bands yet, and meet with our pastor and dj, but that’s all easy stuff.
Last night I sat down and worked on putting together our wedding invitations. It took me two hours without any breaks. These babies will be mailed out in two weeks. I can’t wait to get RSVP’s back!
I’ve also been working on our card box. I wanted it to be really simple, especially since it’s going to be ripped apart after the reception. It’s all glued together for security reasons and the only way to open it, will be to cut it apart. I used washi tape from our wedding candles and I’m going to add a slit onto the top of the boxes so people can drop their cards right in, as well as two (i’m thinking pink) ribbons tied around the lids to the boxes and tied in a pretty bow.
Our confetti is coming along as well. I currently have about 100 pieces, and I just ordered a bunch more paper from SewColorfulDesigns. These will all be cut into 1-inch circles.
I also picked up some pre-cut confetti from Etsy (ThePaperLoom & isavirtue). So in total, I should have around 1,000 pieces of confetti. That should be way more than enough, since I think that averages around 60 pieces per table.
So things are definitely coming along! And I feel the finish line approaching. This weekend is the guy’s suits appointment to get measured and pick out their suits (khaki + camo!) so I’m excited for that. Plus, I go for my dress alterations before the end of the month.
2 months & 26 days to go! ♥
