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!!
