On a side note, I was walking down the street with the girls on the way to our mani/pedi appointment on Friday when I was stopped on the street by Melissa, a sweet reader of the blog. It was SO NEAT to meet a reader in real life! Happy anniversary to Melissa and her husband!
I got home super late on Sunday night and hit the ground running to get started on some wedding crafting and tying up loose ends yesterday. The big project was the seating chart. My mom and I conference called about the seating charts then Corey's mom came over to help finish them last night. Seating charts are like a puzzle - this was one of the most challenging projects thus far!
One of the other projects I have been working on was making these frames for the church. I scanned pictures of Corey and I from our childhood to order prints from Shutterfly for this project:
We've also been making the table numbers, which will be inside gold frames. I had myself, my mom, and my cousin hunting down the perfect frames on sale in three different states until we had enough for all the tables.
I'm busy putting together the card box, which was inspired by these Pinterest finds
My mom is finishing up the wreathes for the church doors, which will use True Touch florals from Hobby Lobby. They are artificial flowers but are made of rubber instead of silk so they look and feel really natural. Major bonus is we'll get to keep the wreathes to use at future bridal or baby showers instead of just throwing them away as we would if we had used natural flowers. The wreathes started out like this:
Those are just a few of the last minute projects I have going on right now. Of course, I'm also finishing up the packages with everyone's gifts, making final preparations for our trip to Hawaii, and trying to relax with my future hubby without getting too caught up with the stress of everything.
