402 days until the wedding! Getting closer to the 300s every day! And before I know it, it'll be ONE YEAR! I really can't wait, if you couldn't tell, haha.
I got some wedding stuff done the past few days. We've got the centerpieces almost done, just need to buy the floating candles and they'll be done. Then we need to figure out what we'll do for the head table. I bought 144 votive candles, planning on putting 8 on each table and we'll have 15 tables. So that's 120 candles used up and that leaves 24 candles. Those will go on the head table, I just don't know what else to put there. I'm thinking probably the girls bouques, but I don't know if it would look funny with flowers on the head table and no flowers anywhere else. I have a bunch of brown and blue tulle from the center pieces left over(30 yards of it, in fact) so mayble I'll try to use that somewhere.
I put all 144 candles into the 144 candle holders. They look nice, I'm happy with the quality I got from them( if you need a lot of candles for anything). I'm going to put blue and brown ribbon around the top of each of them(72 brown, 72 blue). I have the blue ribbon, although more than I need. So I think today I'll return 1 spool of that and buy some brown and I need a hot glue gun to attach the ribbon. I bought some cheap vellum at work a couple weeks ago and would like to print our monogram on that and put it on the votives, but I'm not sure if that'll be overkill or not. I'll have to try it I guess.
I took some pictures of the work I've done, I'll have to upload them later since Arden took his camera to school today for a project he's doing.
I also bought a headband for wedding day off of e-bay this weekend. I like it, I think the design goes with my dress emborydery and it had blue crystals in it, which is a nice way to tie in our colors. I didn't really want to get a tiara, it's not prom or a beauty pagent, it's my wedding. I think this will look nice. I should get it in around a week. Now i just need matching jewlery.

  1. Yeah, i wasn't too into the whole tiara thing either! I'm wearing just a veil, maybe a flower or two.
