Some Wedding Stuff

Well, here's some stuff we have done for the wedding so far!

  • Our wedding website!
I worked hard on this, and I'm pretty proud of it!

  • Our table numbers!
When Danny broke his leg, we figured it was a good time to start on this long and intricate task! Some may think I'm crazy for gluing every single last crystal on every last table number, but look how beautiful they are! A labor of love =) And hopefully I'll be able to sell them after the wedding! Here's the process:
Danny getting to it!  All while still smoking his black and mild so he still feels "manly"  LOL i love him so much!

Spray painting the numbers, bases and rods we received from Crafty Eddy, who I found on PW!

Gluing on every...last...swarovski crystal...

The finished product!  GORGEOUS!

And Storme giving her seal of approval =)

  • Our Save the Date Magnets

I love these, I really do.  And I've gotten SO many compliments on them!  It's weird to go to everyone's house and see them on the fridge! Made thru vistaprint.com, I designed them myself =)

All ready to be sent out! woot!!

  • Thank You Parasol
I ordered this from etsy and am sharing it with Mandy, my MOH. Love how it turned out!

  • DIY Uplighting!
I ordered these from Kiah, a lovely PW bride.  I'm so happy to have them, I think they'll really make a difference in the reception venue!
 with amber gel inserts!

  • Monograms
Well, I had Nicole from pinkdesignevents.com design some for me pretty early on in the planning process.  While she does very lovely work (and I'll still be using one of the monograms she made me) I've decided to design my own main monogram so I can really make it just the way I want it! Here's the one Nicole designed for me:

and the one I designed:

  • Make Up Trial
I had a makeup trial by Sarah Giovinetti.  She did an awesome job!  I'll def be tweaking a few things (like not making my lips look so huge!  everyone knows I have tiny lips, we're not fooling anyone!) and adjusting the colors, but it came out lovely:

Still have to find someone to do my hair, and make my hair flower =)
  • Cake!
Our cake will be totally made from strawberry cheesecake and key lime pie! I'm so excited!  I HATE cake.  I've never liked.  My mom would always get me ice creams cake for birthdays!  SO why have cake just because it's my wedding and that's what you're "supposed to do"?  I think not! Here's what it will look like:

Whew, ok, my fingers are tired!  And for one post, I think I caught you all up pretty quickly =)
