My life right now is a little like Christmas, and Jason and I are Santa’s elves. The wedding is a month away… August 11, and we are starting to feel it. In a way it’s a good thing we are unemployed because we can spend the majority of our time making stuff for our wedding and getting the details sorted out. Here is a taste of a few things we are working on.
Programs. These are tedious. It took forever to get them to print right, and now I have to cut them out, glue a stick on one side, let it dry, then glue the back onto the stick. I’ve only made 15 so far and it took a long time, although watching New Girl helps the time pass.
Instead of boutonniers I’m making pins out of wooden shapes for Jason, the groomsmen, and other important helpers. These were a pretty fun project I did one night last week and I think they’re going to look really cute the day of the wedding.
Jason’s big project has been fabric bunting, which is very time-consuming. He cut out all of these pennants last week and now he is stapling them onto some twine so we can hang them across the barn. He has a pattern he’s sticking to (perfectionist) which makes it take a little bit longer.
And that’s just a few things we’re working on! Last week I spent a day making table numbers and I have seating cards to make sometime this week.
