    Okay...I LOVE advent calendars! There is something about counting down the days with a piece of chocolate that makes me oh so happy.

    That's why when I found a giant advent calendar yesterday that I knew I had to 1. Buy it and 2. Make it into something AMAZING! As soon as I set my eyes on the 3 foot x 2 foot advent calendar that I knew what my wedding was missing something....

    A chocolate countdown calendar!

    So, I bought it, came home and made it into my very own custom Chocolate Wedding Countdown Calendar! I like to call it a Wed-vent Calendar!

    Here are some shots... Here is what the calendar kind of looked like. I had already started to apply the pictures when I took this shot:

    The chocolates inside:

    Who knew that a giant chocolate advent calendar could be so useful when planning a wedding. Who doesn't love advent calendars?

    I now introduce...the Wedvent Calendar! It's so sweet....har har

    This may be the nerdiest (and tastiest!) thing I have done for the wedding.

    Have anyone done anything ultra-ridiculous for the wedding? How did your FI respond?

                    My FI may have rolled his eyes a bit. He knows me well enough that I like to go a little overboard with DIY Projects : )

                    Immediately following the head shaking he immediately asked when we could start opening the doors.....men!
