Happy Wednesday everyone! Oh, happy last day of February as well! Wait a second, hold the presses…Tomorrow is the first day of March?
Holy moly! That makes the wedding seem so close! Infact, did you know that as of today there are only 74 days until the big day? Lately, I’ve been feeling anxious for the day to get here but not unprepared.
A while back I was mildly worried about getting everything done but now I feel good. I feel excited and slowly working on the DIY details at night. The great part of working on these projects at night? I get to hog the TV.
You see, while working on said projects I turn on my gushy/girly shows. Ryan will arrive home and immediately take the remote away to change it to something sporty because he says "I’m only half watching the show.”
I proceed to tell him that I can’t fully concentrate on doing lovely projects for OUR wedding if I’m watching some MAN show! :-) I usually end up winning that battle!
The theme of our wedding is coming together so well!! Family members from both sides have come forward with special family artifacts that are going to act as both decor and as a family history! They are old items which add to our vintage theme.
I saw this picture and LOVED the table number.
Knowing that my Dad saved all the old barn board from when we torn down the old barn on the farm, I knew that material would be perfect for table numbers! He is also a very handy fellow and loves to work on carpentry projects here and there. When I approached him about making the table numbers he was hesitant but thought he could do it.
2 hours later, BAM! 20 table numbers without even batting an eyelash! Told you he was talented!
I still have to paint the actual table numbers on them with leftover white paint but that’s minimal. I just LOVE the little extra detail the old barn board table numbers are going to add. The wood it self use to be part of the farm and now is a part of my wedding.
In other news, I have been REALLY enjoying getting the response cards in the mail!! It’s really exciting opening each one and then also seeing what song people requested!
Also, I got another piece of special mail the other day! A bridal shower invite in honor of me! WOW!
My amazing cousin Sheila is hosting a family shower for me in April. How exciting!!
