Wedding planning isn't exactly my forte, when it comes to celebrations I'm definitely more of a simplistic decor kind of girl. I'm more worried about everyone having fun + not sweating their faces off in Georgia in September than I am about anything else. This weekend I needed to get my hair trimmed and have practice round one of my hair style, go by the bakery for some final decisions about flavors, get some crafting started (god only knows when we'll finish) and have one of my last dress fittings before the wedding.
We ran to about 5 different stores buying all the colors of ribbon we needed (we kept buying everything each store had and still needed to go on to the next place for more) for a little project which is what is pictured above. My mom said it reminded her of My Little Pony and I have to agree. We also grabbed some fabric for an incredibly-time-consuming-I-don't-think-I'll-ever-finish-it project. We even had a family assembly line going with my mom tracing, my dad cutting (while watching the Tennessee game and using a razor blade, manliest crafter ever) and me gluing. My brothers aren't big crafters so they just popped in every now and again to laugh at our crafting misery.
I tried on my dress for another fitting and talked to my mom's sweet friend who is doing the alterations, about some further alterations. Here is a little sneaky peek of the back of my dress (right). The dress on the left is the one I wore for our celebration here in Tennessee a few weeks ago.
I think my biggest hurdle right now revolves around the paper for our invitations getting back-ordered and just arriving TODAY! So with September 27th wedding date looming, our invitations won't be going out until tomorrow and I probably won't be sleeping tonight so I can get them all stuffed. Of course, I was initially stressed about it but, what can you do? On the bright side, the location of our venue + the decor has sort of reminding me of Big Fish (the movie)... and I don't mind at all because I love that book, it makes my heart melt.
