May 2013 Brides

Recommended Posts

Hey ladies, I haven't posted in a while but I wad just reading through to catch up. I am right along with you guys who are feeling overwhelmed! I just accepted a new position at my job, which requires switching my days off and my weekends off (meaning I have to work half of next weekend and the whole following weekend so I can get onto the right schedule). We had planned around my days and weekends off and this really threw everything off, leaving me trying to reschedule dress fittings and our legal ceremony here. And the added stress of a new job while this close to the wedding! Eek! But I'm off this weekend so I'm heading out to accomplish as much today and tomorrow as possible (though I feel bad because it's my fiancé's bday tomorrow). Hopefully we can get a lot done :)

So I was super wedding productive and crafty this weekend. I feel so much better now that all of this stuff is done. I posted a picture of my MOH bouquet (which I did add a little more ribbon going down - thanks Murmel!), but I finished mine yesterday. The one picture is a bit dark. But the broach on mine is my something old from my Grandma, so I have something of hers with me as they aren't attending. It's what her dad gave to her mom when my Grandma was born (follow that? haha). So it's super sentimental. I also finished our menus and program fans. What a load off!  We leave 1 month from tomorrow :D I am so sick of this Chicago weather and ready for some warm!

 

I'm a little worried it all looks "homemade" - which obviously it is, but I don't want it to come off that way haha.

We're wedding day twins!! Pray I don't get rain and I'll do the same for you :-)

I did a DIY program and it's an invite I picked up on clearance from Michaels. It looks similar to your menu except that I added a bow at the top. I like it a lot! You've done a great job with everything.

Thank you for the reassurance! Of course my FI and Mom will tell me that, but I can't trust them to be brutally honest :) I'd rather have someone be honest and tell me so I can fix it, then leave it look bad haha.

 

We leave in 30 days - I can't wait. It is currently pouring in Chicago, and some 80+ degree and sun sounds amazing! Time has flown. I can't believe my bachelorette is this weekend! We're doing a BYOB painting class in Chicago, then a BYOB sushi dinner, and out :) Sam's is this weekend too. Thank god strip clubs skeeve him out, I won't have to worry! They're just going to a hockey game.

LOL, that's funny you say that cause that is what Andrew wanted too...we are both die hard hockey fans ...so he wanted to go away to a game and to a pub for lots of beers...but the guys in the bridal party (mostly my brother behind the planning of course!!) are taking him to Niagara Falls which will no doubt include the strip club....lol

Too funny! He would've loved a Hawks game, but tickets are so ridiculous now that everyone jumped on the wagon and they're playing well. So they're going to an AHL game, which will still be fun - and cheaper :)

 

On a random side note, I got engaged in Niagara Falls. I can't say I remember seeing my strip clubs though haha.

Good job :)

Sure, my FI made them in microsoft publisher. Though I'm sure you could easily convert or make in word. If you PM your email I'll send, I don't think you have enough posts to open here.
