There’s definitely a little tension and anxiety raising as we get closer to the big day. We’ve been planning this wedding for over two years now, and as the numbers on the right hand side of the website get smaller, my blood pressure rises. It’s both exciting and nerve-wracking to have it so close.
This weekend, we finished the table cloths! Now we just need to make table runners to go on top of them. :> Chris is going to make some pennants to hang from the rafters of the pavilion, and we’re carefully tweaking the design to make sure it won’t be renaissance-y.
Also this weekend, we finished, assembled and mailed off the invitations! This is a big step, and it feels official now that’s done. We both feel bad for dragging our feet and not being on top of that more, because we had the opportunity for letterpressing them but by the end, budget (with the cat being sick) and time were so tight that we ended up just straight-up printing.
However, everything, from the selection of the paper, to the design, to the printing, to the cutting and assembling was done by us and it was all as custom as it gets. The invitations were a fun project to work on, and made me miss Tiny Prints – just a little bit.
We have two new vendors to announce, our piper and our photographer. However, I’m waiting for emails from both of them with a good photo and what website they’d like me to link to. So stay tuned – it’s always exciting this close to the event.
