… I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Dresses have been purchased, details are being finalized, suits at the ready, and an emergency trip to IKEA. It’s been a messy week, but a lot of shit got done. The biggest being bridesmaid and groomsmen attire. That’s a huge factor right after all the venue / supplier stuff that I didn’t think would be so brain-consuming. I’m feeling much
more relaxed knowing their outfits are sorted 🙂
First up I designed and printed the tea stickers for our favours. A label to indicate what can be found within. That’s a whole hella cutting-out ahead of me …
In the beginning I didn’t want matching bridesmaid dresses. I figured it would be impossible for all to agree on one. Turns out, we found an amazing dress for one bridesmaid, and they all look smashing in said dress. Hell to the yes. And for reals, they will be able to wear them again.
I sorted out the gentlemen’s boutonnieres this week and thoroughly enjoyed making them. No lie. I was in my element, and can’t wait to sit down and craft more weddingy stuff. Tutorial is right on over here if you’re curiosa.
Groomsmen = sorted. They look a bit screamy-purple here though. Ties will be mismatched so it’s not too stuffy looking. I’m not fond on things being too matchy. Just think – black suit, purple shirt, dark tie, plus above boutonniere. Not bad me thinks.
And something that blew my mind a little – I had my engagement ring resized for the second time. Who knew hands hoarded so much fat? I’ve been slowly loosing weight since Christmas. I’ve lost almost 30lbs / 2 stone / 12kg to date, so I suppose I shouldn’t be too surprised when my fat-ass hands aren’t so fat anymore. Hands are weird. Side note – my engagement ring is much more sparklier in real life 🙂 Fiance picked it out himself. Sob story – he spent two weeks’ worth of lunch hours shopping for the right one. Sometimes going without eating lunch. He hurts my heart sometimes.
Anyways, happy Friday everyone! I hope you have a kick-ass weekend planned ahead. I myself will be heading to dinner followed by seeing one of my favourite movies on stage tonight. Literally cannot wait.
I’ll end on one of my favourite quotes of all time –
