But Elliott and I have managed to have a lot of fun with the planning so far. Mostly, it's me, but when I ask his opinion, I don't see a glazed look, and I do get a thoughtful opinionated response.
Really, it's working out well. I've only had a couple of freaked out moments, which quickly dissipated.
Colors: Yellow and gray, with navy and red accents.
I haven't picked out accessories yet for myself, except shoes, which are yellow and fun!
The bridesmaids are wearing gray dresses with red or blue shoes.
Our venue changed from the one I picked. Elliott never came with me to see it, but when we went to pay the deposit, he couldn't see us getting married there. We worked quickly to find another place, and ended up with a very fun venue that is cheaper than the first one. Plus, we didn't have to change our date, so all is well.
So, of course, there will be some handmade elements.
I saw this on etsy, and my sister punched me some hearts and stars, which I'm going to stitch to baker's twine.
I'm making each guest a cloth napkin party favor, with a little label that has our initials and the date. I'll share the napkins soon. I've only completely finished one, but I have a few in the works. I'm just using stash fabric for now, and hopefully, I can keep it that way!
Invitations have been been ordered from Ruby Press, and Ruby was very helpful during the proof process. I can't wait to see them!
Jill and some good friends are throwing me a shower, which I imagine will be very fun. I've been promised there will be minimal games, yummy food and drinks, and good friends. Perfect!
We've picked an incredible honeymoon spot, Vancouver! I'm hoping we have the courage to travel across this, but we'll see.
So, what else would you like to hear about, if anything?
Thanks for letting me ramble about the wedding a bit.
Honestly, I'm just ready for it to be here already.
