Table Numbers!

Now that the wedding is OVER, I can focus on my blog for a little while! I did my table numbers all by myself! I used Picnik by Google. I simply uploaded the pictures and added a number to them in one of our wedding colors. BAM! Table numbers!

The table numbers were one of my easiest projects. I got them printed at Sam's Club for about $0.17/each. I also bought 5x7 picture frames from Dollar Tree. They were really nice frames, too! Kind of like shadow frames.

For those of you trying to figure out what to do for table numbers, this is an easy project and a nice way to personalize your wedding even more!

Share the Wealth!

Well, really there's no money! lol. But I did redesign my photo share cards! I decided that 250 business cards from Vista Print was way more than I needed, so they will be on postcards instead. Here's the new design:

I love it. It kinna reminds me of our STD.

Bridesmaid Clutches

I've decided that I want my bridesmaids to carry clutches instead of bouquet. I just saw it as more economical. WELL, thanks to some girls on The Knot, I think that it might even out. Now I want to DIY {or just buy} these cute little clutch bouquets! I found a nice clutch here in town that I think will work, no DIY necessary.
I love how there's the big pretty flower thing going on in the middle. So cute. And we can buy them at whole sale price, which is a bonus. But here are some other clutches that I spotted online that I like. I know that if I attempted to DIY them, I wouldn't like the outcome, so I'm better off just buying the ones that I saw here in town.

I'm waiting on one of my bridesmaid's dress to come in. Then I will pick their clutches and shoes. This is going to be fun! But I'm ready for it to be over.

The Last of Boxing

I've ALSO completed my card box! It was very fun! It only took me so long because I took LOOOOONG breaks in between doing stuff to it. lol. Oh well. I finally got it done. Here's my baby:

I'm very pleased with the way it came out! I might do a tutorial later. I think that all together, the box cost me less than $30!

Invitations Completed?!

After forever and a day of putting these invitations together, they are COMPLETE!!! {Well, not all of them, but enough for me to be happy about it!} Not only are the invitations complete, but I finally figured out those blasted wrap-around labels! Here are some pix.

Back of envelope:


When you open the invitation:

I am in LOVE with my invitations! I will be finishing them up today. I just have to print out the remainder of the wrap-around labels and cut and print some more RSVP cards. Then put them all in envelopes! I WILL complete this today!!!

I've Been Inspired

I knew I was going to start back blogging, but I didn't know it would be so soon!!! I went to Hobby Lobby this evening to get some ribbon for my card box. I got 2 spools for less than $5, thanks to all ribbon being 50% off. So, I have ribbon and no idea what to do with it. So, I decided to Google images of "wedding card boxes". Here's my new inspiration.

Found here.
I pray that I can successfully do my ribbon like this! I got the kind with the wire, I think. So, I might want to go change it for this. I guess I need to find or make some brooches, too.

Found here.
I will buy some crystal rope from Michael's this weekend while they have their 50% off coupon out. I will find somewhere to put this on the boxes. Or, I might use some hotfix rhinestones that I already have to decorate the boxes. I'm not sure.

Well, this has been my inspiration. I plan to start working on my box this weekend or the beginning of next week. I hope it turns out to be a beauty!

I Have NOT Forgotten!!!

I have not forgotten about my blog, nor you lovely people that read it! I just really haven't had MUCH to say. Sorry. So, here's where I'm at....

I don't want to do ANYTHING wedding related! Well, that is anything related to MY wedding! Yeah, so I have less than 3 months. I have SO MUCH to accomplish at the time. Here's a list of what needs to be done so far.

To Do:
- Finish ALL invitations! I have 51 done. And I have pix of those for another post.
- Finish RSVP cards. Make sure I like the wording and print.
- Dang on wrap around labels!
- Finish card box.
- Redo the G in GODFREY for the cake table... long story.
- Food/cake tasting. Someone said the cake at my venue is NASTY! I'm scared!
- Programs
- Get photo share cards printed
- 2nd Photo session
- Photo guestbook
- Escort card chart
- Book a dang DJ

Ok, that's all I can come up with at the time, but CLEARLY, that's a whole lotta stuff to get done! AND I'm not going to ask anyone to help me do any of it... except for the escort card chart. With this long list of stuff to get accomplished, I have a lot to talk about on here! So, I hope to get back into the swing of posting. PLEASE forgive me for my neglect. It hasn't been on purpose... I'm just not feeling it lately. But I promise to be LIVE AT FIVE! lol.
