Tick Tock

This wedding stuff is really coming together. Now that it's getting closer, the need to get things done is kicking in. This weekend we shopped for a tux and landed one at Men's Wearhouse. We decided on gray tuxes for the groomsmen with yellow ties and Andy would wear a black tie. It looked very Brad Pitt--and he especially liked that. I also started working on the centerpieces. This wedding is loads of DIY projects (which I love at the moment and will most likely hate towards the deadline) and the centerpieces were part of that.  I found these awesome circus animals at a craft store but hated the color. I wanted to dirty them up a bit so I bought some bronzing antique spray paint and they turned out great.

I did my little project in the basement and didn't hear the end of it as the smell circulated the house. I didn't mind it so much, probably because I was high from the fumes. But I'm happy with the end result.  I sent this picture to my mom. I frequently have to remind her that this will be a classy, tasteful event. I don't think she believes me. She'll see though, it's all coming together!!

...and we're back.

Wow, I took quite an extended break from this blog! I can't guarantee that I'll update this as much as I'd like, but let's just see how it goes.

What is new, you ask? Oh, we are just creeping in on that 6 MONTH MARK!!! Holy cannoli, this blows my mind! We have all been working so hard to get everything prepared. I have to give a very special thanks to our dear friend Krissy at Paper Schmaper. She is like my little wedding fairy. We completed the Save the Dates and got those mailed out. We are over the moon excited about how they turned out.

Didn't she trick them out?! She is amazingly talented and we are both soooooo lucky to have her :)

I've also had mucho contact with our coordinator at our reception this week and let me just say...SYNERGY. I've always wanted to use that word in a sentence and probably won't have the opportunity again so...I thought I had some great ideas---but this lady is VERY good at her job. I really want to share with everyone all the little details we are working on but I shan't. Just know that this is going to some fantastic celebration.

I hope to keep this thing as updated as possible but please understand--I'm planning a wedding! :)
